QUOTE – In a World… (** * * * SPOILERS * * * * *)



An underachieving vocal coach is motivated by her father – the king of movie-trailer voice-overs – to pursue her aspirations of becoming a voiceover star.

Amidst pride, sexism and family dysfunction, she sets out to change the voice of a generation.

(like one of those in the West Wing or Newsroom; it’s a terrific speech – delivered brilliantly by the ever compelling Geena Davis –  in context but not necessarily out of it. So this is mostly for those who have seen the film)

Carol, let me level with you. Sure you have perfect tone and a strong sound that’s a fitting choice for the genera.

But, I’m using you for a bigger purpose.

This pseudo-feminist fantasy tween chick lit bullshit is a devolution of the female mission. It’s cancerous to the intelligence of young women.

You got this job because – whether the general public chooses to acknowledge it or not – voiceover matters. Everyone in the world watches movie trailers. Everyone in the world sees comercials on television or hear them on the radio. And that is power.

Look, this quad-rilogy is going to make billions of dollars and your voice is going to be the one to inspire every girl who hears it.

That’s why I choose you. Not because you were the best for the job because frankly you weren’t.
