  • One particular film, The Purple Rose of Cairo, becomes her favorite

    • by Lorianna
      all reviews
      Cecilia (Mia Farrow), a lonely, unhappily married woman, seeks escape in movies. One particular film, “The Purple Rose of Cairo,” becomes her favorite. She comes to see it so often that one of the characters in the movie,

      Tom Baxter (Jeff Daniels), notices her and, driven by curiosity, leaves the screen and enters the real life in order to talk with her. They are so interested in each other that they leave the movie theater together.

      • The movie is suspended; other characters cannot go on without Baxter, so they just sit there and wait for him to return - which he has no intention of doing. Moviemakers are terrified of what might happen if
        more characters decide to follow and start a life of their own; they summon Gil Shepard, the actor who plays Baxter, to come and reason with the rebellious character and convince him to go back into the movie, where he belongs.
