Movie Quote of the Month

 

January 2021:

"I'm travelling back through the decades, and I recently watched the 1931 film "Frankenstein." I enjoyed the famous scene of the monster getting overly excited by social contact and flinging Maria, his little friend, into a lake. The monster has been shunned for so long that he can scarcely believe it when Maria takes his hand and includes him in a game. He is so thrilled to be relieved of his loneliness that he tosses her to her death. I will be just the same way by the end of the pandemic. I will be so happy to see my friends that I'll mutter and tremble with joy and more than likely, I'll accidentially drown them. Still, I can't wait!"

--Maeve Higgens in the December 27, 202 New York Times.
