Young Victoria [DVD] [2009] DVD ~ Emily Blunt
For most of us History is a bit like eavesdropping in a boring and irrelevant conversation. We hear names, dates, facts without personally engaging in any of it. And suddenly, along comes this magnificent movie and then it all begins to make sense, and we connect and we enjoy the whole experience without even trying. At last we are able to cast off the sombre, black-robed, unsmiling image of the Old Queen Victoria that we have carried in our limited understanding since our High School years of bland History. At last we are able to meet the woman and the man that put the 'good' back into marriage: how to fight fairly, how to make the most of a bad situation, in short, how to learn to love… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A little beauty, 8 Jun 2009
Where has this little beauty of a film been all these years? I loved it. It is a great little story with all the elements of a classic that one wants to visit again and again. Colin, the downcast hero, in prison and almost resigned to a life without hope learns that life is like a seed that is planted reluctantly, grows against all odds and blooms to bring delight to many. In the process, his life mirrors the flower, grown on tough soil, defies his odds, finds true love and lasting friendship with a motley crew of delightful characters. Set against the background of the Hampton Court flower show, this film is a wonderful experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is a Father?, 17 Feb 2009
After the Wedding is the kind of film that truly makes you stop to think. It screams out the question "What is a Father? Is a father the person who is 'always there' or is he simply a biological necessity? Is a father the man who truly loves his family or one who doesn't know his family? Is a father the man who thinks ahead, to provide for his loved ones? Is the love of a father the ultimate sacrificial, unconditional love? Such a good story. Such a touching narrative. Such excellent performances from all the actors. Well done!
