Join Master Cat! Jose Silerio and Guy Thompson as they demonstrate how the strong Theme Stated of Michael Arndt’s Oscar®-winning script (Best Original Screenplay 2006) plays throughout the film — applying to each of the main characters. There’s a lesson here for anyone who wants to write an effective ensemble piece: use your theme to help your story resonate. “Be a winner and refuse to lose” in this edition of the STC! podcast!
