“You never have any idea where your movie’s going to go when you’re shooting—you’re in this little bubble. Everything you care about is getting the next step right: getting the script right, finding the right actors, shooting it. Then you spend half a year in a dark room editing your film and you don’t talk to anybody.” –Morten Tyldum to Emma Brown, Interview Online, November 2014
