At the Annie Leibovitz exhibit at the Brooklyn Art Museum they screen a video about how the show came together. They interview everyone from Arnold to Whoopie, and they all talk about the importance of family and how Leibovitz depicts family in her photos and her own family and how close she is to them and they are to her and how there were so many of them in her family and how great it is now that she has her own (three) kids.

There was also some talk about how hard it is to be a single parent.

Then they showed Leibovitz in her studio, sorting through mountains of photographs. Working hard. At one point her nanny comes in with the twins.

"Hi," Leibovitz says to them, bending down.

"Bye" she says, less than a minute later.

It was one of the finest movie moments of the year, hands down.

Yet no one else laughed.
