They also discuss writing for a male character and the best ways to write a feature film. Women in film and how things are changing.

Zelos is out now. itunes.apple.com/au/movie/zelos/id1436661074

ZELOS from the Greek – meaning ‘zeal’, ‘ardour’, and ‘amorousness‘, but also ‘jealousy’, ‘possessiveness’ and ‘suspicion’

Bernard is the thirty-something he always planned to be. He has a successful career, a meticulously neat beachside apartment and a hairstyle with just the right amount of gel. He adores his girlfriend Sarah who’s about to move in when she returns from overseas. But Bernard’s pristine existence is turned upside down when Sarah confesses her holiday romance.

To salvage the relationship, Sarah insists they equal the playing field: Bernard should sleep with another woman.

A man who would never cheat is asked by the woman he loves to have sex with someone else to save their relationship — a compromise which may ultimately destroy them, as love becomes corroded by jealousy.

By pre-emptively forgiving him for an infidelity he hasn’t yet committed, does Sarah prove that she truly loves Bernard or is it a sign that she doesn’t actually love him at all?
