The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) - ending. I did like this quirky movie. There is s a sense of melancholy to the ending, however. Mia Farrow's character is betrayed - in a way, she's lost it all, but yet, everything is forgotten once she starts watching the movies, again. She's moved on - from one movie hero to another. Movies (and Disneyworld, for that matter) are pure escapism. On another note, the "Cheek to Cheek" Astaire and Rogers scene is lovely, and the music is lovey, as well.
