"I wanted a sense of the elements, of mud and rain. It occurred to me that love is an elemental force, and I wanted to set it in the context of the other elements. And it seemed to me that if Elizabeth had a very earthbound existence, then her aspiration for romantic love would be all the more heroic. She’s got her feet in the mud, and she’s reaching for the stars. I think it’s a heroic story.”
(Joe Wright, Director)
Every girl has her best friend, boyfriend, and true love. But you’re really lucky if they’re all the same person.
Now that’s a compliment!
