Half-Shot Contest #8: Your hint might be "Nick" or "Alexander"

What film is this half-shot from?

Since Nick Alexander won our last contest, you’ll find a hint in either his first or his last name… but not both.

(And Nick, as the most recent winner, you’re disqualified from this round. Isn’t winning a drag?)

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    The audience certainly liked Bridges better anyway. But most people don’t appreciate prophets in the moment.

  • The Cubicle Reverend

    actually it’ll be Horace, but don’t tell anyone.

  • Nick Alexander

    Congrats CR! Personally, I thought it was from “Top Secret!” But I was disqualified.

    So, does that mean the next clue will either be “Cubicle” or “Reverend”?

  • The Cubicle Reverend

    I’d like to thank the academy.

  • Jeffrey Overstreet

    The Reverend has it.

    Nick Bottom, played by Kevin Kline, in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

  • The Cubicle Reverend

    Midsummer Nights Dream

  • Martin

    I wanna say Ragtime.

    Maybe “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” is the clue…

  • Chris Hough

    Life is Beautiful?

  • Gary Scott

    Nicholas Cage film?

  • Jeffrey Overstreet

    Nicholas Nickleby was a great guess, because of the double Nicks in it.

    But no… neither guess has any direct connection to the right answer.

  • Gary Scott

    Ahhh, which one is “not quite”?

  • Jeffrey Overstreet

    Oooooooh…. good guess, Gary. Very clever. But nope, not quite.

  • Gary Scott

    Fannie and Alexander

  • Gary Scott

    Nicholas Nickleby

  • Jared Wilson

    fiddler on the roof?
