    In Mary’s words…

    One of my favorite experiences, without a doubt. Donnie Darko was a film script that I read and, for some not-to-ever-be-explained-reason, I understood it. In the first read! I gave up my summer vacation to do this independent film for no money, and we were all sort of in that mode. I got my first speeding ticket driving down the Pacific Coast Highway to get onto the 10 and the 405 South to get down to Long Beach by, like, 6 a.m. People loved doing Donnie Darko. It didn’t matter the circumstances. And I loved working for Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen as producers. They are brilliant and delightful and wonderful. I loved working with Jake, and… it was kind of a marvelous step through the thing that we call reality into this other area that I actually personally believe is there. It was really, really fun to transition in and out of that world. [from “A.V. Club Interview on Mary’s Career” by Will Harris]
