CBS: Tell us about your UP Original movie, In The Meantime. What is it all about? Could you tell us about your character, Minnie?
TM: “In The Meantime is a romantic comedy about a businesswoman who loses her way and winds up having to do another job, which is not as big as the main job she had. She was a teacher, but she ends up having to teach a literacy class. My character, Minnie, goes to the class to learn how to read, because she wants to better herself and be able to sing karaoke with her grandkids. The movie is a comedy, but there are also serious aspects to it. It is enlightening and encourages people by discussing literacy and ways to improve yourself and not be embarrassed.”
