Listener Peg wrote to Mary Bradley about this past week's Cinematique film starring Robert Redford:

'All Is Lost' was tremendous! I'm still shaken up by Redford's marvelous acting. Am glad that your blurb tells us that Chandor was the writer-director of Margin Call which was one of the best ... films I can remember seeing. I wish it could be presented here again! GREAT that the [Metropolitan Opera] is returning [this weekend]! Thanks so much for all your efforts!
