"I made this portrait of Christopher Plummer the first day of filming @knivesout," she explained in the caption. "As I played his eldest child I wanted to connect a moment with him and I sat in the little study that he had as a room to wait in and we talked. I had very little work with him but we made a lovely connection. His work in that movie is full of life, love and longing. A beautiful portrayal. Honored to have been able to work with him. A warm Aloha, Christopher."
