AngelaÂŽs Ashes

Filed under: films — kevin @ 16:51

Another rental from Heffer’s, this time the DVD of Angela’s Ashes. I missed the whole fuss when the book came out due to being at the other end of the world but I read it not long after I got back and loved the way it showed the joy in life despite misery all around.

There’s a link with last week’s film, Emily Watson. In fact I thought she was better in Angela’s Ashes than Breaking the Waves. She does an excellent job of looking crushed and miserable but then occasionally there’s a tiny smile like sunshine after rain. She’s a fantastic actress and beautiful too.

I was also amused to see Pauline McLynn as Aunt Aggie, whenever I see her I still think of Mrs Doyle.
