I was lucky to get free tickets

the new film starring
I loved it.
The film is totally engrossing with brilliant
and understated acting, wonderful styling
(late 1950's/early 1960's
when women looked like women) and a

(which goes on general release in the UK on
Friday 8th February).
As an aside, I think I must be getting very old.
Throughout the WHOLE of the film we were
surrounded by people eating, constantly and
very noisily. Those packets (which seem to be
bottomless) must be the least cinema friendly
ever made, and how and what can people be
eating solidly for one and a half hours
at 10.30am in the morning?!
And don't get me started on the cans of
Is it only me?
Grump over ;)
