For her directorial debut, Maggie Gyllenhaal adapts Ferrante

She corresponded with Ferrante, who gave notes on the script, which takes many creative liberties with the text, including making Leda British and Nina American, instead of Italian. The Italian author supported and wanted Gyllenhaal to make it his own. But Ferrante said one thing: It was very important that Leda “was not crazy.” If she were, it would make the story reprehensible.
