7/7/24–Rom-com labyrinth

In the new Netflix rom-com A Family Affair, Nicole Kidman’s character Brooke Harwood asks Zac Efron’s character Chris Cole if his Icarus Rush action-hero movies are based on the Icarus myth. Cole is comically clueless, so Brooke explains. “He was the son of Daedalus, who was an engineer who built the labyrinth that King Minos had the Minotaur trapped in.” Cole responds: “Dr. Minotaur was my arch-nemesis in the first three movies.”

A later scene shows Cole on set looking a bit like the blind angel Pygar in Barbarella.

As Nicole Kidman’s character says, “There you go.”
