MetroNews.ca continues their New Moon coverage with this fantastic interview with Chris Weitz. Seriously, anyone that has been worried about Chris’s ability to direct New Moon must read this interview. It’s so obvious that he gets it!
Q. What is it about this story that resonates so much with its audience?A. It deals with emotional occurrences that everyone has gone through. You’ve got all this supernatural stuff, but really what it’s about is falling in love for the first time, losing that love, wondering if you’ll ever be happy again, the restorative power of friendship, having to choose between the guy who seems the right guy or whether you’re going to hold out for the wrong person. This is true of girls, boys, men, women. We’ve all had the experience of falling in love or having unrequited love or being left and feeling miserable and hoping you can get someone back. All these things are universal.
This interview just made my whole day!
