And there's a terrific kind of comfort in their camaraderie. He finds her hilarious, she finds him hilarious, for different reasons."
The filmmaker therefore believed that it was possible for individuals from two different social strata and demographics to truly discover love. "It's like we put ourselves in boxes.
