Fan letter to Jane Campion from Quentin Tarantino
Updated: Jul 16, 2020
Working on the Bright Star chapter for my book on Jane Campion, I came across a reference that Campion made in an interview where she said that Quentin Tarantino was a fan.
A little digging led to the text on various websites and with a bit more digging I found images of the actual note - it's a real delight!
And is Campion a fan of Tarantino? It seems so! As she said "He is one of my biggest heroes of the current generation, I think he is a genius so it was surprising.”
“Dear Jane, Bravo, bravo, bravo, bravo!!! My favourite film of yours. I don't like period pieces like that. I loved this!!! Never has heartache been so realistically and movingly portrayed as Abbey taking to her bed.
The room full of butterflies. The lovers kisses. Abbie lying down on her bed, the wind through the window, the curtain acting like a shroud. Abbie and Ben... touching...lovers...brilliant.
I love it!!! So so so charming. Love, your fan Quentin Tarantino
