Non-diagetic is sound just for us. The characters can’t hear it (like big orchestral scores).

- 2. Discuss a scene where you feel the musical cues were clear and apparent, nudging the viewer to feel a certain way.
- 3. Discuss two instances of diagetic sound in the film. What is their function?
- 4. Discuss two instances of non-diagetic sound. What was its function?
