Meredith Jordan presents her book, a nonfiction narrative about how major motion pictures are made today using one movie as a vehicle.
The author, a journalist embedded with the production of "Last Vegas," follows the people behind the scenes and stops along the way to explain process and different aspects of the business. The movie stars are well known (Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline, Mary Steenburgen), but in this book they play supporting roles. Instead, the leads are the people behind the camera, the director (Jon "The Meg" Turteltaub) and a huge cast of artists and artisans, designers, creators, overseers, office and logistical support, editors, and musicians.
