Rowan Blanchard and Gia Coppola on 'Teenagers and Adolescence'
- RB: I notice a theme of adolescence in your work, that kind of foreverness and longing that teens experience. What draws you to that?
- GC: James [Franco] always said it well: Teenagers are really good vessels to articulate emotions. They feel things in such heavy ways and they wear their hearts on their sleeves.
- RB: Everything’s so raw.
- GC: Maybe I like these stories because I still feel like a teenager.
- RB: Being a teenager is both awful and wonderful at the same time.
