“I would never take a job just because of that, but it certainly enhanced the choice to me, that, yes, women writers, women producers, woman director. I think really the only major male we had was the cameraman … You know, we shot this in twenty days. I’m sorry, but women just don’t screw around. We don’t have those kind of egos that waste time saying, ‘Oh no, I’m more important, I’m more important!’ We really don’t. On the whole, we tend to say, ‘What needs doing? Let’s do it.’ We’re used to taking care of things. That’s what we do.”
—Kathleen Turner talks to New York Magazine about her new movie, “The Perfect Family,” about a woman whose shoe-in status for Catholic of the Year is thrown up in the air when her son gets divorced and her daughter marries another woman. The film is written by Paula Goldberg and Claire V. Riley, and directed by Anne Renton. Oh, and it co-stars Emily Deschanel and Jason Ritter. And I, for one, cannot wait to see it.
