"From the first moment I met her in London, I knew it was going to be easy. Some people are just easy to work with, and you watch her and you look at her face and think, ‘What is she doing that’s so special?’ You can’t define [her charm], it’s just there - it’s all there, everything! She is always spot-on and perfectly informed. It still amazes me that she was 17 when we shot the film. I worked most closely with her and with William Hurt, two masters of their craft, and both were so humble, patient and generous. It was a joy."

The story has a lot in common with fairy tales: there’s a family living in a wood cabin in a forest and rites of passage unfold in the story. The child has to go into the world and experiences and meets evil which has to be overcome […] All fairy tales to me make emotional sense and that was the important thing to find in Hanna.Fairy tales to me are never happy, sweet stories. They’re moral stories about overcoming the dark side and the bad. I find it ironic that happy endings now are called fairytale endings because there’s nothing happy about most fairytale endings. - Joe Wright (x)
