The following is a guest post by Andrew Lisa.
In a his new music video "Mirrors," Justin Timberlake takes his fans on a deep and personal journey, and in doing so, gives them a glimpse into the singer’s private emotional world.
Taken from 20/20 Experience, his first album since 2006, "Mirrors" is both a tribute to his grandparents and an examination of his own life and journey into love.
"For William and Sadie"
The video opens with a simple but elegant black-on-white cursive script that reads “For William and Sadie,” Timberlake’s grandfather and grandmother, who were married for 63 years before William passed away in 2012.
An image of a young woman, crying and distressed in a bedroom, is flashed briefly and then replaced by an elderly woman in the same bedroom. Behind the old woman is an old man, unseen to her, who mirrors every physical gesture she makes.
As the man is dressed totally in black and invisible to the woman, the viewer can presume he has died and she is mourning his passing in the bedroom they shared.
Yesterday we took at look at some of the best moms from TV shows. Today we so the same for movie moms. Here they are, again in no particular order.
Kate McCallister - Home Alone
Okay, so she left Kevin alone not once, but twice. Simple mistake, right? One anybody would make. Okay, maybe not, but she tries to make it up, even traveling with a van of complete strangers in the first movie. She makes it home for Christmas and we get that heartfelt reunion. Presumably she doesn't misplace Kevin during the rest of the year.
Lily Potter - Harry Potter
The one mom we only ever see a few times — though as a ghost-type figure or in flashbacks — might well be the best mom on this list, because she dies to protect her one-year-old child from being killed. That act of love saves her son and pretty much enables the entire plot of the Harry Potter series.
