Spelled Joan. Pronounced Joanne. Likes: film scores (like, a lot), Perks, tea, wine, football (both kinds), elephants, Game of Thrones, medium-well steak, corn on the cob, lots of film, the word "luminous", handsome bearded men, and breakfast food.
To throw one more thing out, to whoever’s listening to us right now: the reason why we made this movie - there’s a lot of personal reasons I guess, a lot of artistic reasons - but one of the most fundamental things is to let everybody in the movie theatre or at home, if you’re watching this in your iPad, wherever you’re watching this, know that you’re not alone in the world. Because if you look up at the screen and you related to any part of this movie, or any part of my book, you know, what that means is that these things happen. And maybe people in real life don’t talk about them, maybe you feel like you can’t talk about them, and not just the darker stuff but the beautiful stuff as well. We are all bound in this; we all understand this. And we did this commentary for a lot of reasons: it’s nice to get together, but also because you’re our friend, too. And if you get it, that means that we got it. And that we can all accept each other and encourage each other to have beautiful lives. So we want to wish you the best of luck, and say that, even though we’ve never met, dear friend, we love you very much. —Stephen Chbosky (final words on the Perks DVD commentary that proved that he is perfect and also managed to obliterate my tearducts at the same time)
