Abstract: Leaving Las Vegas (1995, USA) by Mike Viggis Main Cast: Nicolas Cage, Elisabeth Shue Company: Initial Entertainment Group The movie tells the story of Ben an alcohol addict, who goes to Las Vegas to drink himself to death. There he falls in love with Sera a prostitute. They become a couple and have good time together. Sera promises not to tell Ben to stop drinking. In the end Ben dies. Scene: alcohol mixed adults strong transgressive in company health problem 1:23:51-1:26:49 Ben and Sera are staying at a resort outside Las Vegas. There is a nice pool and the whole scenery looks pleasant. While Sera is still swimming in the pool, Ben appears with a bottle of whiskey and two glasses. Then both are drinking and Sera sits on Ben's lap. They start to kiss and get very close integrating the whiskey into their endearments. After a while Ben falls back and into the glass-plate of the table. He gets hurt at his back. It is very difficult to say which will be the reaction of the audience. On one hand it could be quite positive, as Ben and Sera a very tender to each other using alcohol to make their foreplay more interesting. On the other hand Ben (because of being too drunk) destroys the whole moment again. Clip: 47 (Addictions 5)
