Quotes by Stella Meghie

"All of the films I'm interested in and that I've written always seem to balance romance and mother-daughter [stories]. It's my version of therapy I guess. I'm always trying to have some thesis on how your relationship with your mother or your family affects your romance."
-- Stella Meghie (source)

"My Jamaican grandmother, mother and aunts are responsible for my dry humor—for putting blunt dialogue in the words of the women I write and forcing the men around them to find it charming."
-- Stella Meghie (source)

"People base their whole lives on family and marriage, so the idea that romance and romantic dramas are not serious ... these are emotions that we're trying to get through to be happy, functional human beings, to procreate, and that is important. When I see people talking about romantic dramas or the genre like it's not worthy of being taken seriously, that's just sexism to me. That's just talking down to the female audience and not valuing them."
-- Stella Meghie (source)

"The conversation [about women filmmakers] is much bigger right now, which I think forces executives who are in a place of power to have to consider women and open the door and let more in, so all I can do is do as well as I can and speak out where I can."
-- Stella Meghie (source)
