"Hal, who’s empty but not dumb, theorizes privately that what passes for hip cynical transcendence of sentiment is really some kind of fear of being really human, since to be really human (at least as he conceptualizes it) is probably to be unavoidably sentimental and naive and goo-prone and generally pathetic, is to be in some basic interior way forever infantile, some sort of not-quite-right-looking infant dragging itself anaclitically around the map, with big wet eyes and froggy-soft skin, huge skull, gooey drool. One of the really American things about Hal, probably, is the way he despises what it is he’s really lonely for: this hideous internal self, incontinent of sentiment and need, that pules and writhes just under the hip empty mask, anhedonia."

We had this thought about dressing her a bit wrong, dressing her without quite understanding the nuances about how people dress or the choices people make when they wear clothes. We were kind of using the idea of maybe somebody who had recently immigrated to Britain who was just putting clothes together in a way that wasn’t quite right. It was the kind of gap in what’s obvious to all of us—or to most people—and what isn’t obvious to her—and clothes factored in there.It was quite interesting dressing her and working that out, actually.

It was also important to have her doing one thing, I didn’t want her changing her clothes. I just wanted her to have this one uniform, so it was about what that uniform could be across the whole film. I loved the idea of this pink sweater inside the fur, it felt very much like an insect or inside the wrong continent or something—like a shocking color in that landscape, just incongruous. Then the fur is this practical warm coat to hide another skin, another layer. And then these very femme fatale red lips. this primary colored visage.
