Nostalgia Alert!

Shirley Valentine  - a great feel good film

Today we've gone back to 1989.  A lovely British film about a housewife in her 40's who goes to Greece and changes her views on life – put like that, it sounds a bit naff – but it was a lovely movie!  When I first saw it the audience clapped at the end – very unusual for a New Zealand audience.

Here is one of her many zingy one liners - I think that marriage is like the Middle East - there's no solution


  1. I love this movie!! I remember seeing it in the movie theater with a friend.

  2. I will look into this movie. I am always looking for something nice to watch. Catherine

  3. such a clever film! my Dad and I watched it together and laughed and laughed - happy memories.

  4. I loved this movie - in fact, we just watched it again not long ago. ;)

  5. I wasn't sure where to post this, but I've tagged you to participate in a book meme called the Seven Deadly Sins!! Please see the following post: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2014/10/book-tag-seven-deadly-sins.html
