The film's direction, Lynn Shelton, says, "One of the reasons I was really drawn to this movie was because of the main character, Megan. She's really three dimensional, and she's really multi-faceted, and Keira has found every inch of every facet of this woman, and it's really been wonderful to see her breathe life into her."
