Natalie Portman on Making Her First Feature Film With a Female Director With 'Planetarium'

Natalie Portman and Lily-Rose Depp play sisters who can speak to the dead in “Planetarium.”

The duo dropped by the Variety Studio presented by airbnb to discuss the drama, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and working with director Rebecca Zlotowski.

“This is the first time I’ve made a feature with a female director in 25 years of working, apart from short films,” Portman said. “I don’t think anything’s different. I think every director is different and every director has their very unique way of working and their very unique vision.”

“I just think that there is clearly lack of opportunity for women, particularly in the United States, but hopefully things are changing because you’ve have the majority of your experiences with female directors,” she said about Depp.
