I intend to do things of artistic integrity. I grew up thinking that every movie should be The Graduate (1967). I don’t want to do something just because it might be commercially popular–it’s more important to do something that has meaning.
[on ‘Dolphin Tale’] A lot of this is far-fetched kid fantasy. But I wanted to bring an element of magic to it, and let us enter this kids’ world where things were a little scary and magical at the same time. I think people talk down to kids too much. I think kids’ movies can be great and carry the (weight) and (pathos) of an adult drama. They tend to get short shrift, but the kids are smarter than we give them credit for.
