Mise En Scene
This scene is from the film Burlesque. This scene shows Jack and Ali experiencing an intimate moment after drinking too much at a wedding. They are standing very close to one another showing that they have a very close connection and have strong feeling towards each other. The way that Jack has his hand cupping Ali’s face shows that he has a desire to kiss her. As an audience we know that from their positioning this is a likely outcome. The fact that both are wearing very little clothing also suggests that something will happen between the two. The background is out of focus and there is little there meaning they are alone and nothing is there to distract the audience allowing all attention to be on Jack and Ali. The lighting behind them is very dark with very little light which gives the room a very deep and romantic feel. However, the front lighting is directly pointing on Ali who is the main character in the film showing that this is one of her key scenes and a moment that has been leading up to in the film whereas Jack in not in the lighting as much however has some shadows on him meaning that he still a main character in the film however is less important compared to Ali.
