From "Angels in America," directed by Mike Nichols, may he rest in peace: Prior Walter (played by Justin Kirk) and his friend Belize (Jeff Wright) walk past the graffiti-covered outside wall of LaSalle Academy, and sit on a bench in the Marble Cemetery. Prior talks about meeting an angel, but Belize does not believe him, and says, "There are no angels in America."
