Effie Gray Producer Donald Rosenfeld recently spoke to Huffington Post about what it took for him to make a film. As president of Merchant Ivory Productions for over 10 years, Rosenfeld was responsible for producing critically-acclaimed and award-winning films such as Howards End, Remains of the Day, and The Tree of Life. He speaks of being hands-on, selecting who works on his films, including composer Paul Cantelon and Dakota Fanning, whom he said, “She’s like Paul Newman who I worked with on Mr. and Mrs. Bridge. They embrace the luck of their life as opposed to resting on their laurels… She’s like a great Hollywood star from the Garbo era.” Read the full interview at Huffington Post.

I feel like I am in that lush Scottish countryside inside the empty walls of a house that reflects my restrictions and obstacles.
