When famous horror writer Shirley Jackson (Elisabeth Moss) and her husband take in a young, naive couple, she finds inspiration for her next book in the gothic drama Shirley.
Watch below as Josephine Decker and screenwriter Sarah Gubbins explain to ScreenPicks' Landon Johnson how they managed to create separate worlds inside and outside the house, and elevate the dialogue to honor her intellect.
Odessa Young, who plays the young wife Rose Nemser who comes to live Jackson, talks about how it was to experience the psychological torment while filming, doing a movie on introspection, and then going into quarantine for COVID-19.
