Loved it. Wish there were more sessions on set.
Very helpful and most importantly liked that a lot of the material derived from her personal work .
Natalie Portman is brilliant in this class. Its gratifying to see how she integrates real humanity into her art.
I learned how to bring humanity to a character, how to communicate with everyone involved on set, and ultimately the purpose of acting: to practice empathy and connect to other people in a kind and meaningful way.
