Secret Life Of Bees
Two of my friends have now been to see "The Secret Life of Bees" at my suggestion and both loved it. I suggest that even if you saw the film pre-election, you see it again now, because it is the kind of lovely catharsis we need (what greater place to sob your heart out with tears of relief and gratitude than a darkened movie theatre surrounded by total strangers). Yes, it's a bit mawkish and saccharine and yes critics, like my friend Ella, founding member of the Royal Order of the Spotted Dick (more about that later), will tell you you're a silly-billy...but make up your own mind.
