Liz had a script waiting to burst out her fingers and on to the page. It turned out, the environment in which she wrote it would be the most crucial variable. Is this the recipe in which all scripts are birthed? Take a look at her successful visit to Milan, Italy and Wes Anderson’s Bar Luce, and the experience that led her to produce her first full-feature film script at 98 pages.
“Again and again when people would ask what I would do in Italy for such a long time, I had been saying rather proudly: I’m going to Milan to write a movie. At Bar Luce. The Wes Anderson cafe. And I did. I freaking did. All 98 pages. No one questioned me. Why would they. I am nothing if not a person who does exactly what she says she is going to do.”
