Speaking to the Times about Passionflix in 2019, she said: “I’ve always been a big fan of romance novels.
“I want to make films from a female perspective, with happy or hopeful endings. Many stories these days are so negative; the situations are so dark.
“Women want to see something that makes them feel good.”
