“I want to pause right here in this sentence: ‘the saga of Amanda Knox’. What does that refer to? Are you referring to something that I did? No. It refers to the events that resulted in the murder of Meredith Kercher by a thief named Rudy Guede.

“There was enough written and said about that story. I didn’t want to address that in a real way, but I really loved the idea, or was just fascinated by the idea, it’s a better way of saying this, of a young American woman who is in prison abroad for a crime that may or may not exist. task. And then I quickly began to focus on the relationship between her and her father, which was fiction, ”she explained.
“This strange relationship between father and daughter in this extraordinary environment. What a great starting point for a story. “
