Last night was the monthly film session held in our neighbouring village. To reach it we drive down a really narrow twisting lane for about half mile. I am always worried I will come face to face with another vehicle - there are no passing places. My reversing capabilities are worrying if I have to back up for more than 50 yards! - especially with overgrown cow parsley inconveniently hanging down blocking the view. I am glad to say we met nobody either way last night!
The film is held in a very old building that used to be a small school and then a library. We take our own chairs and cushions and are offered tea or coffee - all for £3.50. I think these kind of facilities are invaluable to a rural community.
The film we saw was The Kite Runner. I think all of us really enjoyed the beautiful filming and the amazing acting of the two small boys. A couple of months ago we saw Atonement - everybody was spellbound (usually there is a bit of shuffling and snuffling)!
