I apologize if someone else has already posted the following, but in
my perusal of the recent discussion of Aristophanes speech from
Plato's _Symposium_ I had not noticed any mention of the animated
adaption of the story of the "Origin of Love" to be found in John
Cameron Mitchell's fine film, _Hedwig and the Angry Inch_. See the
I might also recommend Holly Sypniewski's article (_International
Journal of the Classical Tradition_ 15: 558-586) entitled "The Pursuit
of Eros in Plato's _Symposium_ and _Hedwig and the Angry Inch_"
