well, female friendships are fucking extraordinary. they don’t have to be sexual to be intense love affairs. a breakup with a female friend can be more traumatic than a breakup with a lover. i’ve always been attracted to stories that look at the love-hate complexity of close female friendships. it’s ripe for drama. did you see frances ha? that portrayed a female friendship i really understood.

- What do you get riled up about in a feminist context?
- A lot. I have feminist bones and when I hear things or see people react to women in certain ways I have very little tolerance.
- But don't you feel sorry for modern men? Not knowing whether they should help us with our bags and open doors for us or whether we'll see it as an affront?
- No. I don't feel sorry for men.
