You are now reading about PATRICK METCALF who is a writer, producer, and director of films and television. Reading about him is purely optional. He is a writer, producer, and director and…I said this already. Yikes. Kind of a stream of consciousness thing here. Again, this is optional. He likes to infuse genres with rich, relatable characters and experiment with magical realism and grounded reality alike. Which is all to say he likes movies in which people talk a lot, and he tries to make those. He also has a wife, a daughter, and a dog, and if you meet him, he WILL show you pictures even if you ask him not to. That part is mandatory. But again, reading this is not. But you already got this far so why stop now?
