While making an appearance on Good Morning America that day, Natalie opened up about how directing a film is like being a mother to her five-year-old son Aleph.

“Well, it is actually quite a parental role being a director, because your job is to make everyone comfortable, to make sure everyone’s okay, and also get the best out of them. Like how can you encourage them and support them to get the best out of them and that is very much a parental role,” she explained.
