Popcorn & Prejudice: A Movie Blog

A theme for 2012?

Because I was on vacation last week, this week marks my first screenings of the new year, and so far an interesting pattern is emerging: Of the three movies I’ve seen since Monday, two of them share an uncanny similarity. Both “The Iron Lady” and “Joyful Noise” include a scene in which a grieving widow (played by Meryl Streep and Dolly Parton, respectively) is visited by her ghost husband (Jim Broadbent and Kris Kristofferson, ditto) and they dance together, presumably in her dreams. Hmm. Will I be seeing this for the rest of the year? Will this scene somehow be worked into, oh, “The Hunger Games,” “Dark Shadows” and “The Amazing Spider-Man,” to name just a few? Time will tell . . .
