On NPR’s Morning Edition this week, the incomparable Susan Stamberg presented a look at the upcoming HBO movie, Hemingway & Gellhorn: Power Couple, Covering War (And Waging Their Own). Among others, she interviewed Clive Owen, who plays Hemingway. Here is the excerpt:
Preparing for the role, actor Clive Owen read all the Hemingway he could find.
“It’s so economical, it’s so concise,” he says. “He can, in just a few sentences, create whole worlds and whole relationships. It was such a lesson in sort of discipline and economy.”
Economical; concise…discipline; economy.
Say what you have to say. Say it with just a few sentences. This is the communication tip of the day month year; make that the communication tip of a lifetime.
