Quote by the Director

"Well, my work is sideways. It speaks of specific experiences (often women's experiences) and makes them accessible in a more general way. For example, You Take Care Now, which is about being raped and run over. Fun! A lot of men—because of the parallel I'm making in the film with a non-sexual, non-gendered violent event, the car accident—could actually relate more to what a woman might experience as a victim of sexual violence. And I do it through non-judgmental humour. The specific is the universal."
-- Ann Marie Fleming (source)
