It’s been a nice evening.
Before I watched the movie, I wrote the blog then watched this delightful video of National Treasure Olivia Colman reading one of the original Queen Mum’s letters to her mother in law Queen Mary.
The applause pleased me as it wasn’t just for the scene stealing Colman. ( who deserved what she got) ……but it was also an affectionate nod to the Queen Mother , who always seems to have seen the best in people ( except for Wallace Simpson of course)
The chef had the best line..”France Will Rise Again”
The Last Duel was an excellent watch. Another swan song triumph for Ridley Scott
Jodie Comer was especially good in this gritty portrayal of middle age misogyny and male pride.
