Elvis Mitchell chats with writer-actor-director Kasi Lemmons about her new movie, 'Talk to Me'. Like most I first saw Lemmons as Jodie Foster's roommate at the FBI Academy in 'Silence of the Lambs', but I first became aware of her ability when I saw 'Eve's Bayou', which Lemmons wrote and directed. I thought 'Eve's Bayou' was the best picture of 1997 ('Titanic' took the Oscar...'Eve's Bayou' was not nominated), and it's been one of my favorites since.
Clips for 'Talk to Me' are promising. Lemmons delivers quality and we need more like her.
