How to use film in a sentence?

  1. Alex Kendrick:

    We intentionally showed the film to pastors and community leaders to get their support, our bull's-eye audience are people of faith and the church, and we are trying to call them to a more devoted and sincere walk and that they express faith with conviction and sincerity.

  2. Doris Day:

    My public image is unshakably that of America's wholesome virgin, the girl next door, carefree and brimming with happiness. An image, I can assure you, more make-believe than any film part I ever played.

  3. Allison Young:

    When I began doing this film, I had an uneasy feeling inside of me and I felt so conflicted. ... We talked to the producers about our concerns. They just told us, 'If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave,' nothing has changed.

  4. Producer Bianca Balbuena:

    The Berlinale gave us the freedom, they didn't ask us to cut down the length of the film.

  5. Rod Hilton:

    Two films of Luke Skywalker story, two films of Anakin's story, then a single film that intertwines and ends both stories. i think Episode VII looks pretty good, at least from the marketing material. It seems pretty clear that JJ Abrams is being very mindful of the desires of fans, which I think is going to be well-received.
