I see the city in a very personal way and I wanted to show Los Angeles the way I grew up in it.
There’s a light in L.A. that is very different from the East Coast,
and there’s an expansiveness.
There is much that is ugly in L.A.,
but also a kind of beauty in the ugliness.
I love that there are still sections of the Sunset Strip without high-rises.
That you can be at a farmers market surrounded by 1920s Craftsman homes
and then halfway down the street is a ninety-nine-cent store.
The way the dust catches the light, how green it is.
The beauty of the sky in winter.
– Jennifer Jason Leigh in conversation on her latest film Greenberg
