Article Excerpt:

Hey everybody.Michael C.here. Recently I told my girlfriend she reminds me of Holly Hunter's character inBroadcast News.The comparison was meant as a compliment.To my mind Jane Craig embodies the same qualities of intelligence and moxie that I admire in her.Hopefully,when we she finally watches the movie she will keep that in my mind during the scenes where Hunter's self-described "basket case"is sobbing for no reason and generally making a shambles of her personal life.

In any case it got me to thinking.It doesn't happen often,but every once in a while you meet a film character that makes you think,my God,the filmmakers must have had me in mind when they made this movie. Now in any quality film we can relate to characters with which we have nothing in common,at least on the surface.I couldn't be further away from the charcter of Clarice Starling,for example,but I relate to her every step of the way.But beyond that level,sometimes we meet fictional creations that reflect ourselves back at us in ways that reverberate and linger.

Characters like this could remind us of ourselves physically or in their jobs or in personality tics we frequently find ourselves guilty of. These may even be characters we catch ourselves consciously – or unconsciously – trying to emulate.Like the way a generation of young romantics set out to mimic the laid back,jaded cool of Marcello Mastroianni inLa Dolce Vita,or how many young women in the late 70's attempted to reproduce Annie Hall's devastating mix of flighty neurosis and sexiness.

So I guess what I'm asking this week is...

Who is that character for you?Who is your big screen avatar?I can answer for myself easily...
