Note from the Director: Emma Thatcher
I am very interested in the episodic structure of modern storytelling. Some of my favorite movies and television shows are novelistic in how they follow characters' lives over a longer period of time. Cortland was my exploration of the format of a sequel, but not in the big blockbuster superhero universe fashion. Instead, I wanted to explore the consequences and lingering feelings that happen a year after a one-night stand.
Emma has dedicated 'Fletcher' & 'Cortland' to Lynn Shelton
