Anna Sargent, author of the book “Frosting” and co-author of the film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” has written an exclusive essay for Entertainment Weekly titled “Frodo’s Last Farewell.”
“A lot of what I’m writing is about Frodo,” Sargant says in the piece, which she says is “about being in a moment that feels like a memory.”
“I’ve written about memories before, but this is about having that memory, the same as a film or a novel, when you’re writing a book or a screenplay, in a way that’s a memory that is being experienced,” Sargeant says.
“The thing that makes that memory memorable is that you’re doing something you’re thinking about, but you’re not thinking about it.
And that makes it a more authentic experience.”
Frozen’s “Farewell” has received critical acclaim, and is one of the best-reviewed movies of the year.
But Sarget says her essay “is about what it means to be a writer, a storyteller, a writer in a world that’s increasingly fragmented and a lot of the time it’s very confusing.
We need a lot more stories like this in the world.”
