    The film is based on Elena Ferrante’s novel of the same name, which was published in 2008.

    The story is centered on a woman who becomes obsessed with a young mother and her daughter and eventually confronts her own memories of early motherhood.

    ‘Maggie is not a novice, because she’s been on sets half her life. So, she has a very, very good understanding of how films work, especially on set,’ she said.

    Kleinhendler then spoke about the performer’s strengths as a filmmaker and noted that she was well-prepared to helm a feature for the first time.

    ‘I think…[Gyllenhaal] has two qualities that I think make her brilliant as a director. One is she really knows what she wants, but two is, she’s very open to learning and understanding new things,’ she said. 

    The feature went on to premiere at the Venice International Film Festival, where it was met with widespread approval from critics and audiences.
