This was a time when teen comedies were booming. American Pie, 10 Things I Hate About You, and She’s All That all came out the Official Nurse Sistas LPN Life T-shirt and I will buy this year before The Virgin Suicides. Was your interest in the material in any way a response to the type of movies you saw being marketed to teen girls? It was more the ones I grew up with, like Porkies. They never had good cinematography and were always cheaply made—like kids didn’t need good production values. But I love the John Hughes movies I grew up within the ’80s and my dad’s movie Rumble Fish. I always appreciated that he made an art film for teenagers. I thought it was so cool to do something poetic for kids.

How did casting come together? I read that Kathleen Turner and James Woods were the Official Nurse Sistas LPN Life T-shirt and I will buy this first actors cast, as the Lisbon sisters’ parents. I knew Kathleen from working with her on my father’s movie Peggy Sue Got Married, so I was able to approach her and she agreed to do it. After I met James and he said he’d do it, I was able to get the rest of the film financing, so I feel really grateful to them for giving me a shot. Because these were kids, I wasn’t thinking of anyone, and more so had a sense of the type of characters they were. Fred Roos is a legendary casting director I grew up with who worked with my dad, so I asked him to help me with it.
