Americans deep in the doldrums over lost jobs, homes and investments have seeking refuge in the dark cover of the movie theater and have been losing themselves in the flickering lights of the cinema. Throngs have buttoned up their economic overcoat to the trivial timemachine og Benjamin Button. Hordes have huddled about the cute starving Indian children of Slumdog Millionaire.
