Green Apple Books welcomes film critic and writer Mick LaSalle for a discussion of his newest book, The Beauty of the Real: What Hollywood Can Learn from Contemporary French Actresses, which intelligently argues that French cinema allows its female characters to be more complex, older, and more “real” than their US counterparts.
The Beauty of the Real examines the different ways that France and the US cast and receive their actresses, in addition to profiling some of the French actresses who are doing groundbreaking work in cinema today (but are somewhat unknown on this side of the Atlantic.)
About the Author: Mick LaSalle has been the film critic for the San Francisco Chronicle since 1985. He is the author of Complicated Women: Sex and Power in Pre-Code Hollywood and Dangerous Men: Pre-Code Hollywood and the Birth of the Modern Man, both of which were named “Book of the Month” by Turner Classic Movies. LaSalle has been a panelist at the Venice and Berlin Film Festivals and has served on the jury for the Cinema for Peace Gala in Berlin.
