Nathaniel R: You wanted it heightened?
Greta Gerwig: I wanted it to feel presentational. I kind of wanted the frame, especially in wide shots, to exist like stained glass windows, like it's told in static frames. As if, if you pulled out every single wide shot you could construct the story. We had a very specific palette that was I going for, a particular color and light. Early color films had a heightened painted quality which I like. I don’t want it to look just like life. I want it to be somehow painted.
I guess I’m both a language-driven filmmaker and an image-driven filmmaker. I guess I’m both. I like both! Maybe I’m just a maximalist? [Laughs]
The posters. NB the borders.
