There's a terrific interview with my daughter, Megan Abbott, on Behind the Black Mask -http://www.btbm.libsyn.com/. The other interviews on that site are well worth listening to also. These guys do a great job. They also have a series of shows on classic films that I love.
Megan does make it sound like we encouraged her to watch pretty racy movies by age five. I guess we did. We took both kids to their first subtitled movie-Grand Illusion, at the corner arthouse at ages six and seven, figuring they could read well enough by then. My husband told them it might not mean much to them yet but later they would appreciate the film. Of course, it's a family joke now.
Luckily the second film was Annie Hall, which they did enjoy. We were and are a pretty movie addicted family.
Anyway, check it out. Next up comes Allen Guthrie and Reed F. Coleman. Can't wait.
