My favorite films are love stories. I find it remarkable how much those things move us. Ridiculous as it was, even Ghost tapped into a sense of loss, a sense of love that can't be.
As a writer, I can construct anything I like. With drama, you have the freedom to tell the story you want about difficult subjects, about the most intimate features in people's lives.
