“I had a sense of what she was meant to look like. I saw her hair, her acrylic nails, her wardrobe. I just could visualize all of it, and I wanted very much to play her,” Gerwig said, during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“Then, I think, because we were in the height of lockdown when he was writing it [in early 2020], and starting to dream about this, nothing felt real, so the prospect of doing this was all imaginary in a way,” she continued. “Like, sure, it’s me, in this world that doesn’t exist. I can’t even leave the apartment. I might as well not play Babette, too! And then it became real.”
According to the official synopsis: “College professor Jack Gladney and his family’s comfortable suburban life is upended when a nearby chemical leak causes “The Airborne Toxic Event,” releasing a noxious black cloud over the region that forces the Gladney family to evacuate.”
