Lone Scherfig | The Number One Choice

Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig has a particular gift for blending deft comedy and insightful humanism; Roger Ebert once declared that she “loves human nature and would rather enjoy it than hurry it along with a plot. The pleasure of [Scherfig's work] is in spending time in the company of her characters.” Thus Scherfig was the perfect choice to take on One Day, the adaptation of David Nicholls' bestselling novel that details the lives and relationships of friends Emma and Dexter over the span of nearly 20 years. “You watch her films,” says One Day's producer, Nina Jacobson, “and you see how she has an incredible command of character and of performance, and of the intimate moments between people.” Scherfig was immediately drawn to Nicholls' story, explaining, “The wit of David’s writing appealed to me. But what compelled me was just how much of a real love story the piece is––and at a level you rarely come across.”
