Baroness Kathleen Annie Pannonica Rothschild de Koenigswarter, aka "Nica"
+Monk and the Baroness: An Interview with Documentarian Hannah Rothschild
One of the most effective things done in the film was drawing the parallels between Nica's and Monk's lives before they met.
I wanted to try and work out what it was that attracted them to each other when they met. We all meet lots of people on a daily basis, and yet we don't always connect [in a deep way] with these people. The two of them clearly got on very very well. I decided to celebrate the similarities rather than the differences.
