I think, I hope, what I brought out in Woody’s screenplay is that she’s utterly constructed. I mean, the references that are made to her teen years, you know — she’s changed her name. She’s estranged from her biological beginnings, you know — to avoid thinking of what? The chasm, I think, that has always existed, [which] she’s filled with her husband, her social network, her clothes that she buys. And I think a lot of people said, “Well, why should we feel anything for her?” But I tried to find a connection to that universal problem that so many of us feel — who am I, without all the trappings of our lives?
