Collette said: ''My agent sent it to me, and it blew me away. Then I spoke to Gerard on Skype. We had some frozen, frustrating moments, as you do with technology, but I really got a sense of a very grounded, perceptive, wise person.

''He wrote it, he understood what's going on in the story. It's so much more than a kitchen-sink drama. It's a love story, and it has poetry.
-
''It rang very, very true. Ultimately, no matter what kind of story it is, if there's a kernel of truth in it that resonates with me, I'm very eager to jump in. I just knew I had to do it. I'm never really a fence-sitter. I'm either on or off.''
