"And it felt like an authentic and enjoyable alternative to inform a love story, an grownup love story," the Australian actress added, attributing the genius of the present to creator-director Abe Forsythe. "However specializing in the darkish aspect in addition to the sunshine."

A few of the darker parts are current from the start, however Mary's secret is initially stored hidden from each Gary and these watching the present.  


This, in fact, ends in enormous "twists and turns," as Fisher put it.

Fortunately, it was nothing in comparison with what goes down between Gary and Mary.
