It starts off with a telling exchange between writer and star over the fate of Lindsey Lohan. But in the end, Mia is more focused on her film characters than on gossip page caricatures. Indeed rather than speculate on the fate of misguided stars, Wasikowska considers the legacy of her own character by imagining what Jane’s fate would be in the modern age:

If you put her in contemporary society, she’d be running Parliament. There’s something so remarkable about a woman who feels worthy of respect regardless of her social status.
