Personal Quotes (2)

You can make a monkey act on film, but theatre sorts the men from the boys.
[on Dustin Hoffman failing to acknowledge the stage origins of Quartet (2012)] It is a pity that Hollywood keeps forgetting the genesis of projects. It's lucky he wasn't directing the film of 'Les Misérables', as he may have said 'that story started out as a musical'. I'm sure Victor Hugo would have had something to say about that.
