This film has been on my list of ones to watch for a while so it had worked its way to the bottom but after the last Writers meeting I was reminded about it also the one after. So I had a movie day and binge watched a few things.
This I really liked as not only is it good to see how the war affected different places and the people and I must say Guernsey had a raw deal on that front but seeing how someone’s writing began I always find amazing. This is a wonderful example of people fighting back and I am sure that you will want to visit their country after watching this movie as I know I do.
The characters play the parts so well making it authentic to the point of being sad at times. The one thing I am sure of is that I would not like to taste the potato peel pie as it did not look the best.
I loved this and I think you will to as a story about a writer is always good.
Mary Shelley, another brilliant story about how the book of Frankenstein began, I must admit I knew nothing about this so wasn’t sure what to expect but it is really very good. A love story of writing and people that follows the life of Mary Shelley, who had a very full life that constantly goes from rags to riches at a pace that feels true to life. This woman’s strength got her through the disasters and death that occurred in her life, making her able to write the story she had dreamed of writing since a child. Again the characters were the ones that made this film an excellent example of how a writers life began. Definitely these two films should be on your to watch list.
So grab your popcorn and chocolate curl up on your sofa for a full afternoon of films.
