The filmmaker who inspired Robin Wright before directing his first film

There are many, many great inspirations. What always comes to mind is having had the opportunity to work with the late Anthony Minghella and see him directly, how eloquent he was, the way he gave direction was not just a descriptive word. It wasn’t just ‘walk in the room and have more energy’, he would construct a story, give it a little vignette around the word energy without using the word energy and think ‘well, this has nothing to do with the scene? He would walk away and all of a sudden you were manifesting something different as an actor instead of just repeating the same take over and over and I really focused on that. This is how I love being led. Give me a story and let me infuse the meaning through the shot.
