"I'm missing so many people, this is the terrible thing. It was the greatest thing of my life, making this film and I love everyone who made it. I'm so grateful to them and I'm so grateful to everyone who has watched it."

Meanwhile, Emerald previously admitted she knows she "can’t please everyone" with her projects.

She explained: "Just because you don’t like a film doesn’t make it bad or morally wrong. That’s the really interesting new part of this kind of dialogue. There are so many things you can make that people will kind of vaguely enjoy. But I just wanted to make the film that felt really true to me. You can’t please everyone. Of course not. And that’s been really cathartic for me to kind of not mind ... It couldn’t be so easy. You can look at any statistic, you can look at any story - and there’s a way something goes."
