How excited do you think Kravitz is the first time Lup pulls out a violin, or Barry sits down at a piano? He’s just watching them super intently and maybe it’s kind of weird at first until he explains. Eventually they all play together and it’s a really nice thing that they share. They’re at each other’s houses after work, and those houses are filled with music and laughter and light.
(All three of them keep trying to teach Taako to play an instrument. Any instrument. It hasn’t worked so far mostly because Taako hates to practice.)
Kravitz has people to talk about music with, people who don’t get lost when he gets to the technical stuff. And it’s like he’s been saving up everything he had to say all this time, because when Kravitz gets started on music he doesn’t really stop. Have they heard this piece? Do they know this artist? The really great thing about this or that period of music is what they did with sound, how the whole tone of popular music changed in response to… Kravitz is adorable when he gets excited about music, his whole family thinks so.
Kravitz has a new family and he couldn’t have picked a better match if he tried.
“I was also drawn to the moral ambiguity of the story. We meet a character at the beginning that says ‘there is right, there is wrong, and nothing in between’ and there is a journey that suggests that maybe there is a lot in between. All that knotty moral positioning lies underneath a story that continues to be a page turner.” - Kenneth Branagh on Murder on the Orient Express
