A little known fact...
I am a foreign movie addict. You heard it here.
For me, it’s another form of travel. I love the cinematography, the accents and the customs of other countries.
I’m the movie watcher who notices the wall paper, the weird lamp, the swing that blows in the wind behind the scenes. I’m that person. The person who waits for the set designer credits and lingers on the name of the set dresser.
On Virgin Atlantic there are far too many movies to choose from... but one story happens far too often. It repeats itself over and over again. The unhappy and disappointed housewife.
I was one, I know some, I work with many. Call it post partem, maybe poor choices, possible depression...or apathy. Unfulfilled lives are everywhere.
I watched-heard a story I’ve heard a million times before... The Exit.
It’s a study in discomfort, emotional abuse and mental illness...
As great as the cinematography, the language, the storyline seemed...I opted for sleep and turned it off half way through.
The actress Gemma Arteton is beautiful and full of freckles. I hope to see more of her in future films. Her husband in the film is the very talented and handsome Dominic Cooper. You will recognize him.
Nighty Night! Somewhere between London and Johannesburg!
