Chao said Asia’s film industry is probably no better or worse in terms of abuse than anywhere else.

“People tend to be polite,” yet if something did happen, there is not much of a culture of speaking out, he said.

“This is not based on anybody — it is a fiction, a drama — but the feelings are real,” he said. “I wanted the audience to be right in the character’s head and to feel what she does, all the subtle sounds like the [film producer’s] boiling kettle that stick in people’s heads.”

“If that freaks people out, then I’m happy,” he added.
