The Q&A was particularly revealing.
The young and very witty director shone at the Q&A.
This was his first English language film from this Spanish speaking Chilean director and for him to put together a smooth running evenly paced film with such complexity is very illustrative of his talent and abilities.
As to which female role is the supporting role I am not sure. They are both very good roles.
