Oh. OHHHHHHHHH YES.
So many stand out (when Tim Robbins escapes in Shawshank Redemption, the ending of American Beauty, when Harry Potter faces Voldemort, the “interview” scene with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin in The Master, the list goes on…) but the first moment that came to my mind from one of my favorite movies and favorite performances is the moment in the film Philadelphia when a very near death Tom Hanks is alone and puts on a record of an epic aria from some famous opera. He is so present and moved and full of life and emotion as he travels the terrain of the aria. It is one of the most brilliant, captivating and sad moments in film and I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
