Interesting.

The Pumpkin Eater was on the box the other day. It's desperately sad, as is The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne but both with premier actors and performances.

Went the Day Well ? (it should have a question mark after it) is a firm favourite of mine.
Nonsense to the aggressiveness, I've seen more aggression on the my little pony message board......I mean I was told.
