These characters have what I always thought was a very unlikely love
story that buds between them that is actually, in truth, rooted in a
very likely love story. These characters have a lot in common; they are
two people that are really idealizing this future that they could have
with one another, which is really a result of their past, I think - the
fact that they have this kind of fantasy of a ‘normal life,’ - finding
themselves in another person, being able to live their life together.
They have this one side of them that draws them, and this other side
that is the kind of divine fate that is in store for them, and it’s a
very complicated relationship that they have. A kind of impossible love.
It seems unlikely but isn’t. -Scarlett Johansson (x)
