The popular film "Bird Box" left us with so many questions; however, whether you loved it or hated it the movie could have left you feeling much worse, since the book's ending is quite different.
Here's why director Susanne Bier chose to have a positive ending on her thriller:
"The movie is slightly more positive. The movie is, in many aspects, different from the book, but it’s also very rooted in the book. The book also has a kind of positive ending and I would not have wanted to do an apocalyptic movie that didn’t have a hopeful ending," said Bier in an interview with Polygon.
"In a way, pretty much everything I’ve done has had some sort of a hopeful ending. I’m not particularly interested for the audience to leave, from the cinema or their own screen, with a kind of completely bleak point of view. That’s not really what I believe in. And so for me it was key and, and part of what made me interested in it, was that that if this scary, dystopian story, which actually has a hopeful undercurrent."
She explained that most of her films end on an uplifting note, "there is a hopefulness in trust. That is a hopefulness in love. There is a hopeful note in certain values that I really appreciate it. And I thought that was hugely important."
