Oscar Nomination

Interviewer: “Congratulations on your Oscar nomination. Tell us about the inspiration for your newest movie, Adrift in the Sea of Life.”

Tina: “I was looking for my son and found him wearing an old diving helmet. He was moving around slowly, as his vision was limited and the helmet was heavy. He couldn’t hear me, either. I thought, We all go through life as if we were wearing a diving helmet.

I tapped him on the shoulder. He fell backwards, he was so scared! I knew then I had a story about life.

[Tina laughs so hard she can’t talk.]
