Quotes of Eleanor Jessie Neil

1[on Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse (1991)] Even then when it came out, he [husband Francis Ford Coppola] was not happy because he felt like it made him look too out of control. But my reaction is, it really shows the creative process and the depth of anguish that it can be. I think now he's gotten over it. [2016]
2I grew up in the '40s and '50s, and a woman's role was to support her husband and make a nice home for him. I was frustrated that I didn't have much time to pursue my interests. Young women today have no concept of that. My daughter and her generation, and generations after that, they take for granted that they're going to do whatever is their calling. There's not going to be a question of their role or if they have to give it up because they're a wife and a mother. [2016]
3I'm this housewife who suddenly decided to write and direct a film. It was terrifying, but part of the challenge was cutting through all of your fears and just going for it. [2016]
