Behind the scenes || Cate Blanchett is photographed for the New York Times on set of a short film by film director Janusz Kaminski



Marissa is somebody who worked undercover in a covert operation that ended in a bad way, and I think there’s a lot of self loathing that goes along with that and a lot of thwarted ambition.And so when Hanna reappears and when Erik reappears the need to get them become her personal pathology. She’s given her all to her job but there’s a sense of her being the wicked witch who really wants to have a child because she wants to possess them. - Cate Blanchett

She’s quite a complicated character, and she’s unsure whether she wants to kill Hanna or love her.- Joe Wright  (x)
