True Feeling

True Feeling. Using language that is simple and straightforward, describe intensely and exhaustively a moment of true feeling between two characters.  Meryl Streep says that when she’s researching a character she’s going to portray, she always gives the character some simple secret that no one on the set, none of the other actors, and none of the other characters knows about.  Give the character you’re showing us this moment of true feeling through a secret, but don’t reveal the secret either to us or to the other character.
