Mrs. Palfrey @ the Claremont

We went to the movies again tonight. We've been planning on seeing this one since we saw the preview. It stars Joan Plowright and Rupert Friend. It 's the story of a widow who moves into London after the death of her husband. It's not as nice as she was expecting it to be. Her grandson doesn't return her calls and she's basically alone in the big city. On her way to mail a letter to her daughter enquiring about the grandson, she slips and falls in the street and is helped up by the beautiful young stranger played by Rupert Friend. The story is about the relationship that they develope. It was nice but I was frequently aware that they were "actors" "acting". A little stiff in places. It was a nice story , but it wasn't what I thought it was going to be. It was a quiet English film. Nice . . but , eh .. . . .
