Nocturnal Animals & the metaphor of fat women.
Your Fat Friend

Of course you ignore the rest of the interview, the part where Ford says what he learned while working with these women and how that changed their purpose in the film. That would interfere with your agenda. Sigh.

‘That all changed when Ford showed up to the nude shoot “and fell in love with these women,” he said, admitting, “I actually felt guilty that that had been my original intention. I found them so beautiful, so joyful, and so happy to be there. They were so uninhibited, and I realized that actually, they were a microcosm of what the whole film was saying. They had let go of what our culture had said they’re supposed to be, and because of that, they were so totally free. This is what’s restricting Susan. She’s being who she thinks she needs to be: I need to live this way, I need to look like that.”’

Like what you read? Give Frank Carroll a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
