Kingsley, who played the doctor, was obviously distracted by his patient’s Prada fur coat hanging near the door that he absent-mindedly left his rambling patient at the couch.

Polanski, who also wrote the script, explained that the movie was about freedom of self-expression and breaking the stereotypes in the fashion world.
