Martin Scorsese Encouraged Paul Schrader to Keep Working

From a story on indiewire.com by Samantha Bergeson headlined “Martin Scorsese Encouraged Paul Schrader to Keep Working After Wife’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis”:

Martin Scorsese urged Paul Schrader to keep working amid his wife’s health issues. Scorsese encouraged the “Taxi Driver” screenwriter to find a “balance” between aiding his wife, actress Mary Beth Hurt, with her Alzheimer’s diagnosis and continuing writing and directing.

“You have to strike a balance,” Scorsese told Schrader, as the “Master Gardener” director said. “You can’t let her condition stop you from working.”
