FROM Diablo Cody
Diablo Cody Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) has made her directorial debut, Paradise. She speaks openly about how she was glad to have tried her hand at directing but that she won’t do it again. She’d rather be the “Robin” to the director’s “Batman” and not be the one in charge.
