Talk: Strong. Female. Character.

Rose McAleese is a poet and a filmmaker who was born on Halloween night in Seattle, where she was delivered by a doctor in a giant spider costume, which, so far, has pretty much set the tone for the rest of her life. She began writing poetry before she actually knew how to write, filling dozens of notebooks with her indecipherable scrawl.
