I am trying to remember in which movie I have seen "recently" where Handel's Sarabande, or at least the latter part of it, figures in a short section of the movie. Having a dismal memory, I often struggle with puzzles like this.
Can anyone help with this trivial pursuit?

According to Wiki it features heavily in the movie Barry Lyndon, but that's an old movie now.

If you saw it recently, rather than "recently", then it may be this.

A trailer featuring the piece.

OK, how about Brian de Palma's Redacted then?

It's also featured in Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, but I can't find a clip :(

Sorry no. It is funny how I can tell you what it isn't and not what it is?

Barry Lyndon may be an old movie, but last year my amateur orchestra played an item that featured in it (not the Handel though)
Each year we have a concert featuring classical items from various movies.

Nausicaa - Valley of the Wind uses somewhat of a reprisal of the song, could that be it?

You sure it was in a film? Dave Gorman uses the tune for his found poetry.

I do have a good tip for ya: Find the song on Youtube and browse the comments. You'll often find a lot of people posting what brought them there, such as movies, shows or Ouija boards. Use this tactic sparingly, as reading Youtube comments is a leading cause of brain damage.

Thanks for the suggestions folks. It will probably pop into my head suddenly.

Perhaps the TV mini-series John Adams?
