I love this scene in Closer. Natalie Portman is a favorite of mine. In this movie she moves me. She plays this girl, so mysterious and naughty yet childlike and carefree. This is the only movie that has ever made me have strong feelings for at least two days after seeing it in theatres. The relationships between the characters are real and crowded with mixed messages. They are allso strong but weak at the same time. Pulling their feelings from one another and back to where they used to be.
It’s my most favorite at 4:37 when she says “Where is this love? I can’t see it, I can’t touch it. I can’t feel it. I can hear it. I can hear some words, but I can’t do anything with your easy words.” I used to watch Closer over and over. So many times I found comfort in her honesty, the way she could just just let herself be so open and vulnerable. Meanwhile, the whole time she was really just hiding.
