L. and I went to see Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day this afternoon. It was lovely – light and sweet and touching. Amy Adams was adorable, Lee Pace was quite fetching, Ciaran Hinds always pines so manfully, and you can’t go wrong with Frances McDormand, who was really fantastic, I thought, in the kind of role that always makes me all achy in the chestal area. I did wonder at numerous points of Delysia and Guinevere shouldn’t forget the men and run off together, but I was pleased with how the whole thing worked out.
