    What a shame. So you have to rely on DVDs or films shown on television.

    Hi

    We watched ‘Hail Ceasar!’ tonight and even my husband,( who was feeling rough, and is not a big fan of the Coens), absolutely loved it.

    It is laugh out loud funny. There are multiple story lines and many actors recreating different genres of 1950’s film eg. cowboy, sword and sandals epic, musical and drawing room comedy.

    A good film for when you need a pick me up, or just some very enjoyable escapism.

    I still rely on DVDs rather than streaming!

    I haven’t been able to get to the cinema for years, so I have to be patient and wait for the DVD.

    Hi Christine,

    I’ve recorded it as it ended way past my bedtime! Have you seen it and did you enjoy it?

    I did see it. It was the affair between Dickens and Ellen Ternan from her point of view mainly, and I felt out of sympathy with both of them! I’m not sure why.
    But it was well done, and the sets and costumes were very good.

    I think so! The right beard and hair on any actor will make him resemble Dickens 🙂

    Yesterday Talking Pictures TV showed “Seance On A Wet Afternoon”

    which was really good. It’s being shown at least once again, next month I think. The channel puts on a lot of weird stuff as well as films like this. I believe the whole film is available on YouTube as well.

    Anyone else looking forward to the new Tom Ford directed Movie: Nocturnal Animals? I really enjoyed the measured and moody pace of ‘A Single Man’.

    We watched ‘Million dollar arm’ on Saturday, which was a pleasing family film ( in a good way) based on the true story of a sports promoter who goes to India to set up a competition to find the next baseball talent. It also has John Hamm 🙂

    Hi Christine,

    Yes they did, so my friends tell me. Surely that would spoil the atmosphere a bit. I pictured the railway track running at the end of Edwardian gardens! But I’ll still watch the DVD when it comes out.

    I can, and do, watch many different types of films from action to romance. Last night I finally got to watch “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”, a truly magnificent film on the life of one of the most incredible men in the history of the World.
