A tale I heard

Little Women Director Greta Gerwig on Meryl Streep:

"When I started working on this project, Meryl Streep did just tell me that she was going to be in it. Because she loves the book and she told me ... 'I'll be Aunt March.' She said, 'Write me some good lines.' I was like, 'I will.'

We had a lunch and she said, 'This is what you have to communicate to the audience about the position of women, that they don't even own their own children. It's not just that they couldn't vote, it's not just that they didn't have jobs. They didn't own anything. If you wanted to leave a marriage, you could leave but you would leave with nothing, not even your kids. So it is the decision.' So I basically verbatim took that and gave that to Florence Pugh's character."

A tale I saw

Hymn by Jake Wild Hall

A tale I wrote

She brushed her teeth
while washing her hair
in the shower,
desperate not to be late.
He lay on the road
having left too early.
