'STAR WARS' AT 40: BINARY SUNSET
With the mystery of Artoo's hologram, Uncle Owen's aggression about "Obi-Wan Kenobi" over dinner, and the news that his Academy application will be delayed, the young and innocent Luke takes a brief look towards the twin suns sunset of Tatooine to consider his destiny and yearning for personal freedom, before heading back to finish his chores- a classic moment fused with John Williams evocative score, though this scene was also composed with a far moodier alternate version.

This is a lovely angle we don't see in the film, the location of Tunisia clearly revealing only one sunset, the second added in post production.
