I was actually thinking I was going to quit filmmaking because it driving me crazy…I decided that I was going to go back to grad school and get a social work degree. But the day after my husband brought me the application, that next morning I woke up and said, “I have one more story to tell: she works in a convenience store and he’s in a wheelchair and they live in a motel and they’re in love with each other and obviously life is very stressful, it’s like that Barbara Ehrenreich book Nickel and Dimed.” I had it all. And it was like the universe telling more, “Don’t quit Laurie, make little sad movies with fucked up realities.”
