He turned to face the other car window and froze in his spot at the sight. He saw a boy coming down the apartment stairwell lugging an over-packed, black suitcase lazily behind him with one hand.

Summary: In film, lighting is key. It sets the mood of scenes, the ambience; it helps carve out certain moments. It helps bring emotion to the screen, and enhances it too. It’s one of the nuances of cinematography that Even loves most. During a pivotal moment in time, lighting says a lot of what isn’t spoken out loud.
