“Usually, the prince comes and finds the princess, invites her to become his wife, and eventually she becomes queen,” Larraín told Deadline. “When someone decides not to be the queen, and says, I’d rather go and be myself, it’s a big, big decision, a fairy tale upside down. I’ve always been very surprised by that and thought it must have been very hard to do. That is the heart of the movie.”

Larraín’s 2017 film Jackie, a look former First Lady Jackie Kennedy’s life in the days after her husband’s assassination, won critical acclaim. Actor Natalie Portman was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of the grief-stricken widow.
