The Press Archives have been updated with two brand new interviews with Abbie from the Tribeca Film Festival, in which she discusses her work in The Girl.
From Next Movie:
Some stick more than others. Some, you just finish the film and let them go. Films like the ones I just mentioned, those four films won’t ever leave me — the characters or the experiences. Like I still recite the poem “Bright Star” in my head at least a couple times a week. Sometimes more, even. I don’t know why that’s so deeply ingrained within me. I think when you invest that much into something, artistically or creatively, there’s this connection to it that never goes away.
From The Playlist:
I think we had discussions about it. To not judge Ashley, to let her be. It’s not about popularity with her, it wasn’t about how we show this woman in a way that’s likeable. Not just that she’s cranky, she messes up, and she’s just not a very good person. That’s who she is. It doesn’t mean she’s a bad person at the core of herself, she’s just not connected to that core. There’s so many levels of this film that are political and spiritual, but for me the beauty of the film in regards to Ashley’s character was the journey into her life. The letting go. You see that moment you talked about, that moment that’s hope, that’s light.
