Dearest Antoinette, 

It is clear that the heart of your problems in your new home is your inability to inspire sexual passion in your husband. There is no reason a girl with so many charms as you should be in this situation.

"It was a really hard role to prepare for. I went through every scene and wrote myself notes. For me, it became a very sensory experience because there weren’t a lot of words, so I concentrated on things like the touch of fabric, or the taste of a cookie. I tried to find things about Marie that I could relate to—she was very lonely, and very child-like—and tried to piece together who she was based on that." - Kirsten Dunst
