For the sake of an indulgent night at home, it served it’s purpose very well. Just me, tea, hotwater bottle, doona and a girly dvd.
Circle of Friends. Based on the Maeve Binchy book of the same title. I read the book a year or so back and loved it. I like her stuff – not all at once, but now and then.
The movie didn’t have the time/space to explore the characters emotional levels – which is a large bit of the good that adds to the standard romantic/friendship thread of the book, but I remembered a fair chunk of it, and Irish accents and ‘the 50’s’ are always good fun.
Here’s to a night in!
