Movie Monday 12: Madame Dorothea
We are just over a year away from the theatrical release of ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ and the hype for the adaptation of the internationally best selling series by Cassandra Clare will only continue to grow as the release draws nearer.
I’ve banded together with other ‘Mortal Instruments’ fansites (TMI Source, Mundie Moms, TMI Examiner and TMI News en Espanol) for a weekly feature called Movie Monday.
Each Monday leading up to the August 23, 2013, release of ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,’ we will take a look at a scene, moment, detail, etc. and give our opinions on how we think it will be interpreted in the big screen adaptation.
This week we take a look at a scene from the chapter "The Five Dimensional Door".
Amber, TMI Institute: With the casting of CCH Pounder as Madame Dorothea, I went back and re-read The Five Dimensional Door, to try to picture the iconic actress in this scene. There are many things we learn in this moment when Jace and Clary visit Madame Dorothea’s apartment. The majority of the chapter focuses on a discussion of magic, legends and tea leaves. Even though Madame Dorothea comes across a bit like Miss Cleo in the beginning, it quickly becomes clear that she is hiding precious info about Clary and her mom. I really look forward to seeing the moment of clarity when Jace realizes that Dorothea is harboring a five-dimensional door and the moment Clary breaks away just enough to jump through.
