Meg Ryan’s directorial debut “Ithaca” is inspired by the concern she had about her son, Jack after she got divorced from Dennis Quaid.

The 53-year-old actress said she knows the consequences a kid faces after the parents separate as she herself has been through that, reported People magazine.

“My parents were divorced and I know how hard it is. I thought how do you cultivate integrity in a young man? How’s this going to work? I read and read and read, and I talked and talked and talked.

“I came across this book (The Human Comedy by William Saroyan) and I felt that there was a lot of wisdom in the book, the great questions that were being asked,” Ryan said.

“Ithaca” stars Meg Ryan, Sam Shepard, Hamish Linklater and Jack Quaid. PTI SHD DBS 10310740
