I believe I have solved my exposition problem. I am leaning toward having the male lead search the internet so he and the reader can learn more about the female lead. I can have lots of fun with conspiracy sites interspersing truth with fiction.
I have a new question dealing with narrative. I want to do a scene with almost know speech between two characters who speak different languages. I can see how this would work visually, but is it something that can be done successfully in prose?
