|Mazo de la Roche|
Mazo de la Roche was a very private person, not exactly eschewing the spotlight, but revealing little either in interviews or in her vague autobiography. From the director's comments at the Q&A, it sounds as if this biography was what I would call 'content free'. Her lifelong companion, Caroline Clement, was an orphaned cousin who had been adopted by her parents at an early age. Their relationship was characterized as a 'Boston marriage', a term usually applied in the case of lesbian relationships.
