So there’s this scene in the movie Untamed Heart where Marisa Tomei wakes up and there’s a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in her room. It’s there because the man who loves her, Christian Slater, set it up for as she slept, after he finds out that she misses real Christmas trees from her childhood. Sigh. It’s one of my favorite Christmasy scenes from a movie.
This particular scene popped up in my head recently after a friend told me he set up a real Christmas tree for an old girlfriend in her room while she was out. I was convinced he got the idea from this movie. He denies it. Whatever, dude. We all know guys with ideas like this don’t exist in real life.
