"These are not lectures," she said of her movie classes. "They are conversations about film with people who are interested in film and intelligent themselves and open-minded and have different perspectives and are willing to hear what others have to say. I try to make it fun and entertaining, but educational. You come away with a new perspective with a film you've seen a dozen times."
