What’s The Morning Present about?
The present seems to revolve round Levy’s relationships with Kessler and Jackson. The previous, as a person who’s outed by the #MeToo motion, and the latter as a risk to her place in a world dominated by males.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Reese Witherspoon defined that her relationship with Aniston’s character is not going to be “antagonistic”.
“Our characters are two people with very similar goals but different ideologies because of their backgrounds,” she stated. “Jen’s character existed in a world that was dominated by men. Just the fact that she existed was all that mattered. My character is like, ‘Hold on, no, no, no. If you’re not bringing other women with you, what are you doing?’ It’s not antagonistic or competitive. It’s second-wave feminism meets fourth-wave feminism.”
She added that the present was re-written after the #MeToo motion hit full swing.
“When we started … nothing had happened with Harvey Weinstein or [former CBS Corporation Chairman and CEO] Les Moonves yet,” she stated. As soon as the tales broke, “We decided we needed to start from square one and redevelop everything with more of a slant about … people being held accountable for their behavior.”
However she clarified that Steve Carell’s character is not going to be an all-out villain.
“As artists, we attempt to discover the shreds of humanity in any disaster and open folks’s minds to see all sides of issues. What does it imply to be an individual who loses their whole life? Their household. Their profession. The #MeToo motion has been so emotional on all sides.
“I remember talking to women and holding them while they cried. I can’t even imagine what it must have been like to be the spouse or the child of one of these people who was exposed. With the men, we ask, Where is the contrition? How are they supposed to behave? We deal with all of these questions as the season goes on.”
