I went to see this film tonight. I had great expectations of it, as a bit of a 1920s costume drama, which it was, including the old 1920 cars and LA trams. Angelina Jolie was fantastic, I hope she wins an Oscar, she deserves it. It was a harsh reality film ie true story, about the corruptions of the LAPD etc. But some scenes were brutal and disturbing and it was only a 15 rating. I'm not sure I would want my 16 yr old to see it. I think some of the scenes will haunt me for a while, but it was such a moving film, one that will stick with you for a long time. Don't find out the ending before you can see it, that's what keeps your willing all the way through.
My Pa has his old girlfriend from his teenage years staying for a break with him, so I invited Felicty to come with me tonight for a girlie night out. We had such a fab chat about our lives, and got on so well. It's only the second time we have met, but we spent plenty of time over a meal and coffee discussing life. But we were a right pair hobbling around with walking sticks. I loved her company, and look forward to her being my guest for Sunday lunch.
