"Everything’s pattern on pattern on pattern— the chairs and the seat coverings and the wallpapers and the costumes…. Something that we wanted to build into the opening section was that it was very verdant and over-textured, as opposed to the later section where things become a lot sparser."— Joe Wright.
Everything they had, rested on a few minutes in a library years ago. Was it too frail?
What was fascinating about it to me is that you’ve got this character… Quite often we have characters that are very black or white. They’re good or they’re bad, and these ones aren’t. They’ve got layers to them. I think that she is a good person, but she’s just behaving badly. She’s got very obvious flaws in her personality that are not particularly nice traits, but that still doesn’t mean that she’s a bad person. I think it’s always interesting to look at the flaws because that’s what makes characters, and people, interesting. You want to have negative aspects, so that you can look at the positive as well. I think that she’s a fascinating character.
I love you. I’ll wait for you. Come back… Come back to me.

Dear Cecilia, Please don’t throw this away without reading it. As you’ll have seen from the notepaper, I’m here at St. Thomas’s, doing my nurses’ training. I decided not to take up my place at Cambridge. I decided I wanted to make myself useful, do something practical. But no matter how hard I work, no matter how long the hours, I can’t escape from what I did and what it meant, the full extent of which I’m only now beginning to grasp. Cee, please write and tell me we can meet. Your sister, Briony.
