Phoenix revealed at the beginning of the conversation that Scott wanted to understand “the dynamic between Josephine and Napoleon” that the actor still “doesn’t understand.” Josephine and Napoleon’s volatile relationship forms the emotional foundation of the upcoming feature. “Along with his name, it is also associated with this woman Josephine. So that’s where it all started,” Scott explained of his vision.
The film will cover all the good and bad of this relationship, Napoleon and Josephine both are outsiders in their system, when they meet they have a few things in common that connect them. Phoenix explains, “That relationship, everything that maybe even they didn’t understand – what their attraction was, what their relationship was based on – that mystery is always interesting to me.” Phoenix and Kirby’s interpretation of the characters will showcase their romantic arc from their first meeting to their eventual divorce, while hopefully avoiding the clichés of period dramas.
