"I decided that there was a public Elise
and a private Elise, and they're not necessarily
the same person." — Amy Adams interview
on the 2005 film "Standing Still"

A division between public and private, from
"Standing Still"—

User review at IMDb:

"This movie reminded me of The Big Chill
(which I also loved)…."

See, too, a different door and a different Elise
in a post from Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013

Also from that post—

"By recalling the past and freezing the present
he could open the gates of time…."

Für Elise

Elise in "The Adjustment Bureau" (release date: March 4, 2011)—

IMAGE- The perception of doors in 'The Adjustment Bureau'

A quote for this unlikely pair:

"Harry decides his chief peacetime duty is to use his
gift for gab to further his 'overriding purpose,' namely:
'By recalling the past and freezing the present he could
open the gates of time and through them see all
allegedly sequential things as a single masterwork
with neither boundaries nor divisions.' Once he opens
these gates, Harry will flood his audience with his
redemptive epiphanic impression that 'the world was
saturated with love.' "

Liesl Schillinger, review of Mark Helprin's novel
In Sunlight and in Shadow  in The New York Times ,
Oct. 5, 2012

A more realistic pair: Chuck Schumer and Iris Weinshall.
