I cannot recommend this movie more highly - for anyone over 60 - for widows - and for women who love to look at delicious men! Starring Joan Plowright, one of Britain's most celebrated actresses and introducing Rupert Friend, whom I predict will be a famous leading man before long. Go here to read a synopsis . Here is a cast bio for Rupert:
London's newest young actor, Rupert Friend attended the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Arts, and has already made a name for himself in such films as "The Libertine" and "Pride and Prejudice."
In Mrs. Palfrey, Rupert has risen to the challenge of playing a lead role - and when your co-star is someone as seasoned as Joan Plowright, that's saying something.
The movie is a little slow in places, but the characters are endearing and lovely to look at (at least Rupert is!)
***********Word of the Day: Abibliophobia (noun)Pronunciation:[ê-bi-bli-ê-'fo-bee-yê]
Definition: The morbid fear of running out of reading material.
Usage: It is quite interesting that this word has popped up on the Web, the greatest source of reading material the world has ever known. Irony will never cease.
Nothing produces such odd results as trying to get even.
