This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

So I'm looking at my twitter feed this morning and someone I know mentions that there are invites going for a private screening of a new indie film this evening if anyone wanted to come along. I grabbed one and travelled into town.

I then went off to find the screening room, which turned out to be in a club called The Hospital . Wine beforehand was nice as people arrived - some of whom I knew - and then off to see the film: Wendy and Lucy . Lucy is a dog, by the way - it isn't a lesbian film! The screening room had comfy chairs and at the front big bean-bag type chairs, so I went for one of them ;-P

I liked the film and would really recommend it - it goes on release in the UK on March 6th. Indie and semi-'art house' in style it had poignancy and was a very touching story about a girl, Wendy (played by Michelle Williams, who I remember best as the entirely fanciable young 1970s dyke in If These Walls Could Talk 2, but has also been in Dawson's Creek and Brokeback Mountain) and with her dog is on the way from Indiana to Alaska when she runs into problems. A check on Wikipedia when I got home showed that the film has received numerous awards and plaudits from critics too

So yes, go see …
