Went to see The Hours not long after getting back in from work, so not much chance to write. Mandy found a two for one offer for the Odeon in the Observer on Sunday, so we got in cheap, which was good, as I really hadn't had any interest in seeing the film. But what do you know - it was absolutely terrific, one of those real 'food for thought' movies. The weird thing is, as much as I love the written science fiction genre (though not to the exclusion of all else, of course) it's movies like The Hours that more often than not really do it for me. Everyone talks about Nicole Kidman as Woolf, but it's Ed Harris in his role as the dying poet that really knocked me off my feet. Excellent performances all round, mind.
