Dante and Hugh Grant

“In the children’s film Paddington 2 (December 2017), the vain and pretentious villain, Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant), keeps a bust of Dante’s head among the lavish collection of photographs of himself in his London drawing room. A publicity featurette shows the actor Hugh Grant with his Dante head at 0:21 seconds, coinciding with the words “incredible vanity.”    –Cormac O Cuilleanain
