    "The whole church part of the film, for me, is the most realistic. The boys were inspired by a real army from a very evangelical church in Brazil that put together male youth groups that look like armies. All the speeches of the minister were inspired by real speeches from famous ministers I watched on YouTube. In the church aspect, I tried to be more close to reality because their reality is already a lot like a horror film." - Anita Rocha Da Silveira

    "For me, it’s a revenge film for me in a way. I feel like those fear based decisions or those critical thoughts stole time from me. So it’s my figuring out there’s other ways to cross that chasm, but I figured out a particular way to do it, and I’m going to take this recipe and tell everybody else how to do it. I wish I had seen this at nineteen because I would have gotten to that point earlier than I did." - Justine Bateman

    Dear Evan Hansen

    On paper, an empathetic film depicting teenagers who live with mental health issues finding their way out of their high school years, which can truly be hell, seems like something we might need right now. Unfortunately, Stephen Chbosky’s adaptation of the Tony-awarding-winning musical “Dear Evan Hansen” is not that movie. Frankly, the musical, with music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and book by Steven Levenson, itself is where the fault lies. There were few redeemable qualities to begin with, and Chbosky’s dreary, washed-out direction adds nothing to its already bleak, vapid existence.
