One point that fans of the original story might note is that Drewe, who in the original story is a columnist and interviewer for an unspecified newspaper, has been given a job at the Independent for the purposes of the film. Frears said he had consulted the Guardian editor, Alan Rusbridger, and suggested she might be made a Guardian journalist in the movie. Rusbridger preferred not (after all, Drewe does seem to do a minimum of work and sleeps with an interview subject, which would of course strain credibility to its utmost were she placed at the Guardian).
Quite, at The Guardian Mr. Rusbridger prefers that such sexual shenanigans be kept entirely in house.
So it is said of course…..
