Personal Quote:

[on directing The Young Victoria (2009)] It was a challenge for me and that's why I wanted to make it. It's so much out of my world. I wasn't attracted by the royal family. But once I had to make a film on them, I became curious to learn about their world and be faithful to what they are. We don't have this in Quebec, and this respect for tradition and rituals.
