In speaking with the Guardian‘s Suzie Mackenzie, Susan Sarandon says that “one of her strengths as an actor…is that she can look at a page of dialogue and tell in a flash if it’s authentic or phony.” That’s fast. Most people who read scripts say they know if one’s any good after five or ten pages. I can watch a movie for five minutes — less, really — and know if it’s on some kind of case and going somewhere, or not. Hell, most of us over the age of 25 or so have a pretty fair idea who and what most people are — the ones we’ve just met, I mean — after ten or fifteen minutes of conversation…right?
