She’s a character filled with despair and regret. Right away, if you start from that, there’s a lot of material to work with. At her heart, she’s been misguided by the promise of redemption through religion. I think that’s an issue and a theme that we see a lot these days, whether it’s in politics or religion or whatever: The belief in something that proves to be false; and not just false but duplicitous. In some ways, (she’s) a very sad and desperate woman who’s looking for some kind of redemption and finally does find it through these children at the end. That is a very powerful statement because that, to me, is where we do find redemption: In our children, in the next generation, in the possibilities. - Jessica Lange
