Emma Thompson's diary

Guild member Emma Thompson wrote the screenplay for Nanny McPhee (and also took the title role). She kept a diary of how the project developed - published in The LA Times.
I can safely say that with the possible exception of doing stand-up comedy on Nelson's column to 60,000 hot, tired, angry people for a nuclear disarmament rally in 1984, this has been my most difficult assignment. You try writing something that pleases, delights and intrigues children without boring their parents. Go on, try it.
