“Big Night” (1996): Breakfast Scene

My calmest, most focused moments in life mirror the qualities of this scene: a quiet attention to doing the routine well. Whether cooking a go-to meal, washing the dishes, or walking a familiar route, I often find some happy contentment in activities like these—movie moments, of sorts.

Similarly, I enjoy movies that portray the ordinary in close detail, like someone quietly getting up and going about their morning routine.
