There are times when it feels like we’ve seen the same thing in movies over and over. But how must it feel like for actors? In this case, Jennifer Connelly, who found herself in similar circumstances three times in the late 1990s/early 200s. In Dark City (1998), Requiem For A Dream (2000) and House Of Sand And Fog (2003), Connelly’s characters have found themselves staring out to the sea from the end of a long pier. The scenes don’t serve similar purposes dramatically and none were done in direct homage to any of the others. Still, it is just a startling coincidence and one has to wonder what Connelly must have thought around the third time she found herself reporting for work on location to find a seaside pier.
