Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday talks about her new book, “Talking Pictures: How to Watch Movies.” The book provides a guide for those looking to understand and interpret the medium that continues to educate and entertain audiences more than 100 years after it was invented.
In “Talking Pictures,” Hornaday considers the aesthetic and technical elements that comprise a typical movie – from writing a script and casting to the final sound edit – and explains how to evaluate them as pieces of a larger whole.
Hornaday has been a critic with The Post since 2002.
A book signing will follow the program.
Inside Media programs are made possible with generous support from Kate Headline in honor of her husband Bill Headline, CNN Washington bureau chief from 1983 to 1996.
