Last quote by Rebecca Skloot
She wanted nothing more than the story to go out into the world. And she said for years she wanted Oprah to play her in the movie. It was everything that Deborah had wanted, and she really captured her spirit. When I was on set and saw her in costume, Oprah ceased to be Oprah.feedback

It was one of the most incredible and powerful moments of my life. That was the closest thing they'd ever seen to their mother being alive since they have no memory of her. It was beautiful for them to be in the presence of her in a way that felt the closest to her being alive. She knew that that wasn't her mother obviously, but it was like being able to have closure in a really beautiful way.feedback

For me, the process of winning her trust was about figuring out why she was afraid. I knew something happened to her that made her scared of me. It was definitely like the way you see it in the movie where we would go forward and good things would happen and she would panic and push me away. Usually it was because something happened related to her traumatic experiences and she would get scared and really challenge me.feedback
