A Woody Allen masterpiece The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) is original, funny and brilliant. The idea of a character walking out of a movie and entering "real life" is magical! I could relate to Cecilia (played by Mia Farrow) and how she escaped her drab life by watching movies. My childhood was not that great, but I found a way of escape in TV and movies. In junior high The Brady Bunch was one of my favorite shows. I would have loved it if Peter Brady had walked out of my TV and asked me to be his girlfriend. Swoon!
