On a lighter notes I took a second visit to the local Everyman Cinema. I quite like sitting in the settees or big comfy chairs watching films. This time I went to see The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry written by Rachel Joyce. I must admit I thought the production was exceedingly well done, with Jim Broadbent playing the lead role brilliantly.
I once met Rachel Joyce at a writing retreat at Ty Newyff, Criccieth, where she came as a guest author. She was one of the most open and welcoming authors I have ever met, answering all questions from new and aspiring writers without any reserve whatsoever. I love authors who are willing to share their craft with new writers and who willingly share the writing process of their book.
This is a great film, but then Rachel also wrote the screen play so maybe that’s why it also came across as being true to the book. If you get a chance to go and see the film do so. You will love it.
Still having a few problems with one of my emails. Company is transferring them to an upgraded server. Hopefully they will sort it soon as its most infuriating. I do hate technology at times. As my husband keeps saying “they must be out to get me,” lol. And that’s it for today. Til’ next time.
