Discussion question: Why are Swedish rape movies so popular with retirees? The other day I was in my local library branch, dropping off my ballot, and overheard the silver-haired librarian discussing the movie version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. “It was so…” she said, searching for a word, “so…so…beautiful. ” Well, that is one way to put it. Anyway, the Stieg Larsson adaptation starting a second run this week isn’t Dragon Tattoo but The Girl Who Played With Fire—but it replays the rape scene from the first movie, so you can take your grandmother and feel uncomfortable while she doesn’t mind one bit. .
