“In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves,” DuVernay explained. “Eventually, we witness our heroine ready to walk through the door of her own. The door in the film represents a pathway to who we are.”
Miu Miu describes the clothing as a symbol of renewal as we watch Union transform into a new woman– her own woman– and embrace the life change.
