Texting drives viewing of subtitled movies? Oct 02 2008
Actress Kristin Scott Thomas made an interesting observation the other day while discussing foreign language films:
"People will now go to films with subtitles, you know," she added. "They're not afraid of them. It's one of the upsides of text-messaging and e-mail." She smiled. "Maybe the only good thing to come of it."
The abundance of scrolling tickers on CNN, ESPN, and CNBC may be even more of a contributing factor...if in fact people are more willing to see films with subtitles. (via ben and alice)
