Description

EW’s Shana Naomi Krochmal, David Canfield, and Clarissa Cruz share two in-depth conversations with acclaimed female filmmakers: Lorene Scafaria, who fought hard to adapt the screenplay for ‘Hustlers’ – and then even harder to get to direct the movie – talks about working with Jennifer Lopez, why there’s so little nudity even in the film’s strip club scenes, and how an introvert is handling the crush of Hollywood awards campaigning. Then Clarissa talks with Lulu Wang, writer/director of ‘The Farewell,’ and Shuzhen Zhao, who plays the irrepressible Nai Nai. They discuss the negotiations required to make a film that felt as grounded in its Chinese heritage as its American story, why the movie challenges traditional awards show categorization, and Awkwafina’s beautifully restrained performance.
