Taking a break from the grind of politics (or, as Roxanne puts it "Miers/Plame-lash"), a number of bloggers are playing "what movie scenes always make you cry?"
No thinking necessary for this product of early 70s divorce; that scene in Kramer vs. Kramer when Meryl Streep comes to take their son from Dustin Hoffman...
Shakespeare's Sister: "Love Actually, specifically the scene in which [Emma Thompson]Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s standing in her bedroom, listening to Joni Mitchell, and trying not to fall apart."
Roxanne (from Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's):
"You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness." You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself."and Robert Farley: "The final scene in Babe. I fall apart when James Cromwell says 'That'll do, Pig.'"
