Clearly a story along these lines would be filmed soon due to the numerous cases of situations like this in recent years. It is fascinating, disturbing and has a compelling 'there but for the grace of ...' quality about it which intrigues us all, and it is therefore worth exploring through fiction or drama. But it is such a delicate, raw issue that it would have to be done brilliantly to pull it off. From Jason's email it sounds as if the intentions and potential of this production are just that. FIngers crossed. The issues involved are so far beyond simply 'falling in love' or otherwise. I'm sure it will be explored with depth and humanity.

It's a fine line between speculative and brilliant about these issues on film. Hope they'll pull it off.

It sounds like he has his hand in some of the page to screen 'stuff'. "Fingers crossed we didn't screw it up from page to screen" - (he usually compliments what's on the page and helps make it better). It IS a very delicate place to wander, there are aspects to those type of relationships which can be much more common than appearances dictate. ~ellen
