Last day of rehearsal with Kirsten before she leaves for Spiderman press throughout Europe. The last rehearsal, including the ballroom scene, sparks with real intensity. Dunst is especially magnetic today. It’s not hard to stare at her, and for the two hours of our rehearsal it’s a real glimpse of the movie we’re about to shoot. She’s immersed in her character. You’d never know that elsewhere, all across the country, she’s on screens everywhere in one of the most successful movies ever made. Here, she’s just a girl from Nashville, playing a flight attendant with a love of travel and a strange fascination with a shoe designer from Portland, Oregon, here to helm the funeral of a father he had planned to know better… next year. The exhaustion I’d been feeling is disappearing into a new kind of adrenalin. I hope that I can keep this journal going. Many a director has started keeping a journal only to see it disappear into blank pages shortly after filming, with the tidal wave of actual filming hits. Wish me luck.

September 1, 2004

John Wayne Airport, Orange County. Haven’t been here since we filmed Jerry and Dorothy swinging Ray in “Jerry Maguire.” It’s a good luck place, and the site for our long airport scene with the Baylor family. We’re shooting nights, and everybody is a little wobbly as we finish about five in the morning. I like airports, maybe that’s why they pop up in my movies so much. Sometimes I’ll sit in an airport when I’m not even traveling, just to people watch, and imagine the lives going by, most of them people at some sort of an important juncture in their lives. The John Wayne airport hasn’t allowed filming since 9/11, so it’s a big deal that we’re here. It’s also only available to us for one day, so we need to stay on schedule. We do, ending with a crane shot done at five in the morning.
