I’ve somehow missed what Jack Malvern of the London Times Online is reporting in advance of the London Film Festival debut of March of the Penguins, which is that U.S. conservative commentators have embraced the Warner Independent release as a monogamy and right-to-life metaphor. Rightie film critic Michael Medved says it √¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢√É‚Äû√ɬ∫most passionately affirms traditional norms like monogamy, sacrifice and child rearing.” Uhm, okay. Sacrifice and child-rearing, fine…but forget monogamy. Penguins creator Luc Jacquet says that penguins are far less monogamous than people. “If you want an example of monogamy, penguins are not a good choice,” Jacquet told Malvern. “The divorce rate in emperor penguins is 80 to 90 per cent each year. After they see the chick is okay, most of them divorce. They change every year.”
