Thanks for all your responses last week to Season 3 of our Show Your Work podcast. For those of you who missed and who keep asking me about my Jake Gyllenhaal story from TIFF, check out the episode here.  

This week:

What’s it like directing Nicole Kidman? You know what people say about cars? There’s an expression about high performance vehicles, something something about how they’re so well made they practically drive themselves. Nicole Kidman is a high performance actor. So… is it automatic? Does she need direction? Joel Edgerton talks about giving Nicole feedback because her feedback is what led to his feedback. How can anyone show their work without feedback? 

Next – there are arranged marriages and there are arranged work marriages. There are also work divorces. Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner are breaking up – at work. How do you get past a work breakup? And how do make a work marriage work? That Mindy Kaling story Duana references – read about that here


Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret – Judy Blume’s book is being made into a movie. Why this story? What is it about this story? And the work required to bring this story to the screen.
