As our movie-watching continues through this challenging time, cinema can often be an escape to a better place or a window into the experiences of others, connecting us in a time when so many feel alone. This poses the question: which movie character would you most want to spend self-isolation with? We asked our Film at Lincoln Center audience on Instagram and Twitter to share their picks, and we’ve rounded up the highlights below. We want to thank everyone that submitted!

As the devastating impact of the  COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, your support and generosity are critical in helping to ensure that we can continue bringing you the best in cinema from around the world when our theaters reopen. If you would like to support us, the best way to do so is donate to the FLC Emergency Fund. Donations are fully tax-deductible.
