Writer/director Rebecca Miller talks to MovieMaker Magazine about Maggie’s Plan, her fifth feature film which she readily admits is her most lighthearted and comedic one to date.
“I thought of the movie like a soufflé,” says Miller. “You whip it up, you cook it just the right amount time in the oven, and you pop it out for everyone’s enjoyment! But this is also our world—not quite our world, but a touched-up version of our world, slightly elevated, a little surreal, certainly screwball, and yet it’s our world. People will say, ‘I can see that happening to me.’ And I’m sure somewhere, this is happening in our world.”
