Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia In 2011, Thandie Newton told InStyle Magazine that during the filming of this movie, its director, John Duigan, coerced her into starting a sexual relationship with him, despite the fact that she was 16 and he was 39. She clarified in the interview that the relationship was not strictly illegal, since she was above the age of consent in Australia, but that it left her feeling "self-destructive" and not "in control of the situation," and she had to have therapy later to come to terms with its ramifications.

Quotes Nicola Radcliffe: So what did you actually do together?
Thandiwe Adjewa: I beg your pardon?
Nicola Radcliffe: No, it's all right. You don't have to tell me. I think... if I liked somebody enough... I'd want to...
Thandiwe Adjewa: Have you ever?
Nicola Radcliffe: Of course not.
Thandiwe Adjewa: Almost?
Nicola Radcliffe: Well... Do you remember the young guy who was fixing the bell tower? I used to take him a cup of tea each morning before assembly. I rather liked him even though he never said anything much. I used to... close my eyes... and sit on a chair... and let him touch me all over... as long as he promised not to take anything off. I thought it was so exquisitely daring I'd almost faint. I'd have to sit down because I was trembling so much, my legs would've given way. Afterwards I'd be reading the lesson, convinced all the teachers must know because... because I was so shivery delicious all over.
Thandiwe Adjewa: I'm amazed.
Nicola Radcliffe: So am I when I think of it. Which I do most of the time, especially in maths. So, here's to risks.
