Marcus Skinner (Kevin Kline): "Every good writer has a conflicted relationship with the place they grew up....And that's what I remember loving about your story. It's very conflicted because at the beginning, you think, these people are doomed. This family is headed for disaster. Then, as you read on, you see there exists, beneath the surface, these very real connections, these deep relationships. What I took from your story was this: that even in a world where people can be superficial and stupid and selfish, there's still hope. Was that the message you were trying for?"
