Lass is More with Josh Lasser

Focusing on the media, "Lass is More" sits down with the individuals who make the movies and shows that people are, or will be, talking about. The things we watch are not created in a vacuum, but rather as responses to far larger thoughts and issues. From why someone took a role to what it means to them to where they’re going next, we put the pieces of the puzzle together. The "Lass is More" podcast gets to the core of the issue, offering perspective on both the people involved in a project, and the project itself.

Maggie Betts joins the podcast this week to talk about her film, "Novitiate," which is currently out in select theaters.  The film focuses on nuns, and those studying to be nuns, as the Vatican II talks take place.  Betts, the writer and director of the film, was at Sundance this year with "Novitiate," where she won the Director Breakthrough Award, and it later screened at TIFF as well.  

Here she tells us what went into crafting the story and how much changed when she was on set.

The filmic adaptation of "Dreamgirls" is getting a swell new Blu-ray release this week, but watching it Josh couldn't help but think that the sort of fame and power offered up in the movie is fame and power Josh just doesn't want.  Then again, he doesn't want the fame and power afforded Peter Parker in "Spider-Man: Homecoming," so maybe he just doesn't want fame and power at all.

Ah, lighting.  It sets the stage.  It adds flair.  It lets the audience know in ways that are not always subtle whether they should be laughing or crying, scared or amused.  As with anything though, moderation may be the key.  It is possible to push mood lighting far enough to destroy the mood.
