"I had gone through a frustrating period of developing projects that I wanted to act in that were female-driven projects. And they weren't getting made," Graham told Bustle. "If you want to get a movie made, write about a man."
While Graham did face some resistance when trying to get 'Half Magic' off of the ground, in the current climate that has enveloped Hollywood, the reception to her film has been overwhelmingly positive.
'Half Magic' follows three friends who work to harness their inner magic to find better love, sex, and a successful career after they find themselves dealing with a string of disappointing men.
"I wanted to find the humor in just experiencing sexism in the business and making bad relationship choices, and some of the things I saw my friends doing that I thought they shouldn't be doing, and just finding humor in everything in life that has caused me pain," Graham said.
'Half Magic' is currently in theaters.
