–Robin Wright and Jason Isaacs asked director Rodrigo García what the backstory was of their characters and he told them “I don’t know, why don’t you guys go talk about it, but don’t tell me,” so they did. After they shot the scene, Garcia asked Wright and Isaacs what they had come up with. They told him they figured they were both reporters in a war zone during the Bosnian War when they met.
