leicester city players and thousands of supporters have observed a minutes silence in cardiff for its chairman — vichai srivaddhanaprabha — and four others, who died in a helicopter crash last week. it was the team's first game since the tragedy — and they went on to win1—0. leicester's players were joined by their coaching staff on the centre circle for the moment of silence. one of their players, kasper schmeichel, was in tears. well eleanor roper is still
in cardiff, where in the last few minutes leicester beat cardiff city 1—0, what's the atmosphere been like there today? well it has been an emotional afternoon here in cardiff. topped off by 81—0 win for leicester city. a goal in the 55th minute. he scored a lifted his shirt to do reveal a t—shirt that said the four vichai srivaddhanaprabha. an emotional and to an emotional afternoon. the fans we re to an emotional afternoon. the fans were given the opportunity and asked did they want the afternoon game to go on and the data wanted to make the chairman proud. the fans also showing their support and occurs a
couple of fans we chatted to earlier. he's the top of a family tree, really. from supporters, from the fans, from the players. he has been there for the community and not just from the club up for the wider community and he has a love for foot ball community and he has a love for football in the country and around the world. show people how you can runa the world. show people how you can run a football club. any have been a supporterfor a run a football club. any have been a supporter for a number of years. talk to us how the club has changed his ownership. when they came and we we re near his ownership. when they came and we were near enough on the brink of collapse. we had nothing left and he had brought in summer sustainability and change the facilities at the stadium. we have the 5000 to one extraordinary champions of england. we are on the premier league. little changes and show respect to the supporters as well. and the fans and players no one has said a bad word about it at all. but i don't think ever wheels. we feel at supporters
we value as a club and there's not many. we really genuinely... he sits with us in the stands at away matches. in madrid for the champions league he came in the square and said hello to us. he always took the time. he if it wasjust a smile and a thumbs—up he always acknowledged us as a thumbs—up he always acknowledged us as the fans that had taken the trouble to go. members of leicester city will now fly to bangkok where they will attend the funeral ceremonies that will be held in thailand over the next seven days. excited to return to the uk on tuesday ahead of their next premier league tie. that's against burnley and this time it will be at home. members of the leicester squad will now fly to thailand to attend the funeral of — vichai srivaddhanaprabha. the ceremony started today and will continue throughout the week. from bangkok, jonathan head reports. the setting for the final farewell to the leicester chairman
is as grand as he would have wanted. a royal temple and a royally sponsored funeral. in leicester, the city whose spirits he did so much to lift, the grief was open and spontaneous. mr vichai was seen as a generous benefactor there, an owner who is genuine love of football shone through. in thailand though he had a very different image. as a powerful and very private man. the elaborate funeral going on here is a mark of the status that vichai srivaddhanaprabha achieved here in thailand. that was largely as a successful entrepreneur skilled at political connections any controversial business. his success at leicester city certainly raised his profile in this country but the outpouring of gratitude and affection we've seen in britain, will you just don't see much of that here. the funeral began with the ritual bathing ceremony for the body attended by close
friends and family. later buddhist monks will chant for six nights important religious rights wrote the deceased spur for the cremation. funerals are big social networking occasions in thailand and mr vichai's will be watched closely to see who does and does not attend. but the arrival of much of the leicester city team tomorrow straight from their match against cardiff will bring home to the people of thailand just how much this elusive tycoon meant to the club that he bought eight years ago. jonathan head, bbc news, bangkok. the radio presenter — paul gambaccini — has received a pay—out from prosecutors over the way they handled unfounded historical sex abuse claims made against him. the bbc presenter was arrested in 2013 over allegations he sexually assaulted two teenage boys in the early eighties. mr gambaccini always denied the claims, calling the case "completely fictitious".
he spent a year on bail before the case was dropped. frankie mccamley reports. arriving at the bbc studios in central london this morning to hostess radioed to show. all had nothing to say. the veteran broadcaster, known as the professor of pop, has been paid an undisclosed sum by the crown prosecution service of over unfounded allegations of historic sex offences. in a statement, a cps spokesperson said... the 69—year—old, in an interview with the daily mail, talked about how his life had been turned upside down following his arrest, claiming the organisations he had supported throughout his life had ghosted him and praised his husband, who he said saved his life through the ordeal. mr gambaccini was arrested following allegations he had sexually abused two boys
in the 1970s and 80s. claims he says were fictitious. the cps dropped the case and since then he has called for changes in the law. if we are to have a just society, we must have anonymity before charge. because what we had during this recent five years was anybody could make an accusation against anybody, whether they knew them or not, and it would get publicised. and since then, paul gambaccini has called for changes in the law. the bbc has said paul is valued and appreciated, which is why he presents two much loved shows. frankie mccamley, bbc news. the lawyer representing a christian woman in pakistan who was cleared of blasphemy charges after eight years on death row, has fled the country in fear for his life. saif mulook said he had to leave so he could continue to represent asia bibi, who was convicted in 2010 of insulting the prophet muhammad, but acquitted by the supreme court earlier this week. violent protests by hardline islamists followed the ruling, but the government has since reached
a deal with them, barring ms bibi from leaving pakistan. a little earlier, i spoke to omar waraich, who's deputy regional director for south asia at amnesty international. he strongly criticised the deal and said it undermines the rule of law. it's a shameful capitulation. just a couple of days after the prime minister went on television saying that the government upholds the verdict of the supreme court's warning the mobs from rampaging across the streets and carrying out destruction, laying siege to major cities and today have surrendered. they have effectively said that the rule of law is negotiable if you have the muscle to bring the government to you. i understand asia has been put on ecl or the exit
control list. what does that mean? that means she would not be able to leave the country. this is usually a measure to stop people who are at risk of flights. principally in criminal cases and in this case you have the strainer a situation of someone have the strainer a situation of someone that has been acquitted by the supreme court possibly being stopped from leaving and the condition is that she not be allowed to leave the country until a review of the supreme court ruling goes through. not to be a real legal challenges to this and there's no guarantee that this goes through and if she's unable to leave the country and the supreme court is forced to review the verdict then i fear for her life. what is the state of religious freedoms in pakistan according to amnesty? what are you seeing? well, it has been a dismal situation for several years. the
long—suffering minorities have been targeted by armed groups, subject to discrimination leaving them ensnared in these blasphemy laws that are brought vague and coercive. on the basis of little evidence that we have seen this particular case someone can have seen this particular case someone can be ensnared into a justice system that will not protect them. the onus, they cannot factually defend themselves, and even as we are seeing, factually defend themselves, and even 3s we are seeing, even factually defend themselves, and even as we are seeing, even when the highest court in the country rules that someone is in a sense that the evidence is insufficient they can still be persecuted in this most horrific way. what would you like to see happen next, or does amnesty ever need plans to act on behalf of asia and what about these reforms? boot: the government to go about
back to their original position that when to uphold with the supreme court ruling was which undid and reversed in a year—long miscarriage of justice, to ensure reversed in a year—long miscarriage ofjustice, to ensure that people are ofjustice, to ensure that people a re protected to ofjustice, to ensure that people are protected to a religious minorities, that mobs cannot hold the state hostage in this way and to prosecute the people making these threats and these are very serious threats and these are very serious threats made not just threats and these are very serious threats made notjust against the supreme courtjudges threats made notjust against the supreme court judges lives threats made notjust against the supreme courtjudges lives but also against members of the government including the prime minister and even the army chief. this sort of behaviour would not be tolerated by anyone else if it was anyone else. so it's really quite surprising that an armed and violent mob of this kind can get the government to submit to their demands. the state has to rediscover their authority and is sure the ruling holds a meeting that cannot be defined at will by the forces of bigotry and it
will by the forces of bigotry and it will be there to protect the most marginalised and we to rely on it. the success of nf has caused a drop in the number of children being adopted, according to the boss of the organisation that represents children in care. in the last a0 years, adoptions in england and wales have fallen by 62 %. have fallen by 62%. meanwhile, ivf success rates for women under the agoe of 35 have nearly tripled. anthony douglas — the head of the children and family court advisory and support service — told the daily telegraph the adoption process is still "far too slow". a man in his 50's has been struck by a vehicle and killed, while walking on a motorway, at around two o'clock this morning. west mercia police said it was yet to be established why he was on the m5 near to frankley services in worcestershire. the motorway was closed overnight for investigations but it's now been re—opened. viewers on bbc one willjoin us shortly for a round—up of the day's news with clive myrie — before that. with just days before crucial midterm elections in the us, two presidents —
past and present — have been dominating the campaign trail. on friday the former president, barack obama, launched a scathing attack on donald trump, accusing his successor of fear—mongering over a caravan of migrants travelling towards the united states, and calling the current president, a liar. what we have not seen, at least in my lifetime, is an approach in which folks in the highest levels of office, folks who we thought our children should be looking up to, will just blatantly, repeatedly, boldly, shamelessly, lie. just make stuff up. just say things that they know are not true.
and theyjust keep on doing it. president trump has also been on the attack. while he acknowledged that the democrats could take the house of representatives, he sharply criticised the obama years and defended his own record. we don't want to go to the obama days of low wages, high unemployment, rising crime, open borders, far leftjudges, oppressive regulations, horrible, horrible trade deals, disastrous foreign policy. look at the mess i inherited in north korea and look at how well we are doing now. meanwhile, twitter has removed around 10,000 automated accounts that discouraged people from voting in next week's us midterm elections. most of the accounts were posing as democrats, the social media company said. a little earlier i spoke
to sam woolley, director of the thinktank — digital intelligence lab, who gave us his analysis of the story. there's been all sorts of different kinds of messages from what we call political bot accounts — some of them tell people not to vote. they are trying to disenfranchise voters. some of them are harassing. they try to attack people in different social groups or issue—voting groups and some of them are just spam that are meant to block the lines of communication on a site like twitter. is there any evidence that these messages, these accounts have had an effect on social opinion? what we see is that often times the bots are targeting people. they are actually being built to target the algorithm, the trending algorithm on a site like twitter in order to manufacture fake trends. when they do target people however, what they are being used to do is either harass them in order to get them off—line or to create a chilling effect among journalists and journalists don't report certain stories.
do we know how quickly twitter has responded to this? twitter seems to be doing a lot to try to get rid of bots on its platform but these things have existed on twitter since twitter went public several years ago. and there have been numerous instances across the world where political bots have been used to manipulate public opinion. and twitter has really failed to do as much as it really could've up until 2016 what was in their backyard, so to speak. so why this change in its actions, why was it so important that it is seen to be taking swift action? i think that the reason is that there has been a tremendous amount of pressure within the united states upon twitter both from the government and civil society but as well as users. and so if twitter wants to retain its legitimacy, it really has to get rid of bots
because bots are seen as a way of notjust faking political speech online but also bolstering metrics of advertising and really affecting the bottom—line of the company itself. how closely is twitter working with the political parties on these midterms? that remains unclear. in the past we have seen twitter, facebook and google working with parties in a political communications capacity to sell them advertisements and things like that. what we don't know whether or not the company is working with parties to actually actively get rid of bots. in fact often times what we see from twitter is quite a sort of hidden practise of how it manages this problem. sam, i am interested to know because the last time we heard allegations of this sort of interference, political interference, at the us elections of course with the presidential elections and there was the allegation that this had originated from russia, do we know whether this was home—grown or foreign accounts?
what my research shows is that a large proportion of the traffic that's being used to target social groups, specifically jewish americans, members of the left, latino community and african americans is coming from the alt—right and members of white nationalist parties in the united states. but that could be really a veil for russian accounts. we know that russians have impersonated us voters in the past. but the thing to underline here is that it's really hard for researchers like me to tell who is actually building bot accounts and it's actually really hard for a group like twitter to actually tell because anonymity is baked into the platform, so to speak. good evening. a minute's silence has been held at football matches around the country in memory of the five people who died in a helicopter crash near leicester city's stadium last saturday. today saw the first game
for leicester in the premier league since the accident, playing cardiff, and members of the squad will soon head to thailand for the funeral of the club's chairman, who was among those killed. from cardiff, here'sjoe wilson. saturday afternoon, going to the game. nothing could appear so normal, except for leicester city right now, nothing is normal. there is consolation in a familiar routine, familiar faces. but everywhere still was the image and the memory of the man whose investment made leicester champions. all our thoughts are still with the family, the funeral is today. we have just come to support the boys because i think leicester has been through a tough week and we just want to show our love and support for leicester and the leicester team. applause. the coach bringing the leicester team to cardiff stadium this afternoon was applauded by supporters from both sides. what happened last weekend in leicester has touched football as a sport, as a community. in cardiff's match day
programme, a tribute to vichai srivaddhanaprabha. around the ground, supporters voicing their own. the outpouring of grief, the support for him, leicester city, and everybody connected with it, this is no ordinary football match. of course it is there to win, but i think, going back to his memory... do you know what? he became one of us. inside the stadium, all those who died were honoured, and every travelling member of leicester city's staff and squad joined the minute's silence. these expressions don't need words. for the same man, a different ritual was unfolding in thailand. a royal temple for the funeral of vichai srivaddhanaprabha. an elaborate ceremony. in his home country he may have been perceived differently,
as a skilled businessman, but a private person, successful at making political connections. the rituals there will continue and leicester players will attend. two very different cultures, connected by football. many leicester fans in wales talked to me today about their owner's legacy. a legacy which belongs in football grounds near and far. studio: joe wilson, you talked about the legacy. the poignancy of the moment today really transplanted across britain. yes, i think so. and in any grieving process, any attempt to come to terms with something truly shocking, i think it's true people move at their own pace but equally i think it is true that today's match was a big and important step for leicester city fa ns important step for leicester city fans and football in general. i think the next leicester city home
game will be a big step as well. let's be clear, results in football matches are always imported and the fa ct matches are always imported and the fact leicester city won 1—0 today will be the topic of conversation. but there must be a broader purpose andi but there must be a broader purpose and i think what happened today is that leicester city football club proved proudly that they are still just that, a football club. i think it's really as simple and as significant as that. joe wilson in cardiff, thank you. the businessman arron banks has returned to the uk as he faces allegations that multi—million pound donations he made to groups backing brexit, may have broken electoral law. the co—founder of leave. eu has been referred to the national crime agency by the elections watchdog, over claims the donations had come from "impermissible sources". mr banks denies any wrongdoing, and insists the money was his, and didn't come from anyone else. well, it just hasn't. the money came from me. we are going to cooperate
with the nca, and they will have visibility into our accounts, won't they? the pakistani lawyer who represented a christian woman previously sentenced to death for blasphemy, has left the country saying his life is in danger. saif ul—mulook succeeded in getting asia bibi released from jail, much to the anger of islamists who launched three days of violent protests. the demonstrations only ended after the authorities agreed to bar ms bibi from ever leaving pakistan. the irish prime minister has warned that brexit is undermining 20 years of peace in northern ireland, and is fraying relationships with britain. in an interview with the broadcaster rte, leo varadkar said brexit was also pulling britain and ireland apart. brexit negotiations have stalled over how to avoid the return of a hard border between the republic of ireland and northern ireland. the radio presenter paul gambaccini has received a payout
from the crown prosecution service, over the way it handled unfounded historical sex abuse allegations against him. he was arrested in 2013 after claims he sexually assaulted two teenage boys in the early 1980s. he's always denied the allegations, calling them "completely fictitious," and spent a year on bail before the case was dropped. here's frankie mccamley. arriving at the bbc studios in central london this morning to host his radio 2 show pick of the pops, paul gambaccini had nothing to say. the veteran broadcaster, known as the professor of pop, has been paid an undisclosed sum by the crown prosecution service over unfounded allegations of historic sex offences. in a statement, a cps spokesperson said... "we have reached an agreement without admission of liability". the 69—year—old, in an interview with the daily mail, talked about how his life had been turned upside down following his arrest, claiming "all these organisations i'd supported just ghosted me", and praised his
husband, saying "he saved my life. i don't want to imagine what it would have been like not having a loving spouse through all of this." mr gambaccini was arrested following allegations he had sexually abused two boys in the 1970s and 80s — claims he said were fictitious. the cps dropped the case and wrongly suggested his accusers were under age. mr gambaccini began legal action whilst calling for changes in the law. if we are to have a just society, we must have anonymity before charge. because what we had during this recent five years was anybody could make an accusation against anybody, whether they knew them or not, and would get publicised. since the cps announcement, the bbc has released a statement to say paul is valued and appreciated. that is why he presents two much—loved shows. frankie mccamley, bbc news. the success of ivf has caused a drop in the number
of children being adopted, according to the organisation that represents children in care. in the last a0 years, adoptions in england and wales have fallen by 62%, as the ivf success rates for women under 35 have nearly tripled. the children and family court advisory and support service also says the process for adopting children is "far too slow". today saw the start of the autumn rugby internationals, with england facing south africa at twickenham, but missing key players. england's co—captain owen farrell said the team couldn't use injuries as an excuse, and they didn't, winning12—11. elsewhere, wales were much the better side beating scotland 21—10 in cardiff. here's patrick gearey. picking the posters at twickenham is nearly as tough as picking the team. england's cast of characters is constantly changing — retired, dropped, injured. in fact, less than half of this squad finished the six nations with england.
and just a year to go to the rugby world cup, it's not the ideal time to experiment. but experiment they must. so, onto twickenham's testing ground came not one, but two captains, owen farrell and dylan hartley, power—sharing. as well as being co—skipper, farrell is the goal kicker. he secured england's first points. 3-3. but england had spent much of the half defending their doormat. eventually south africa would find a way through. nkosi spotted it. despite that, england went into the break only two points down but the team talk couldn't wait for the dressing room. something had to change. moment came from the boot of elliot daly, this kick carrying 60 metres and carrying england into the lead. south africa snatched it back. again england needed a response. over two brad shields, who hadn't visited twickenham until yesterday, and still hasn't made it as far as the
try line. south africa would not crack, but england forced enough fractures to give farrell another chance. ahead by one. a fragile lead, a lead within range of andre pollard. this stood between english defeat and victory. relief, but not all experiments bring clear results. in cardiff, new trophy for an old hero, the dobbie we're cup, named in honour of the irrepressible former scotla nd honour of the irrepressible former scotland international who is battling motor neurone disease. wales have george north playing his clu b wales have george north playing his club rugby on the green, green grass of home. a move designed to conserve his energy with tries like this. when he gets going, he and wales ta ke when he gets going, he and wales take some stopping. patrick gearey, bbc news. that's it. i'll be back with the late news at 10:10pm. think we have seen the back of the cold days in the frosty
night for the time being. it is set to stay exceptionally mild through this weekend and into next week. another feature we have is low—pressure to the west of the country, containing the remnants of hurricane oscar. passing between the uk and iceland in an excellent four hours, bringing milderairup from the south, south west, noticeable across the board this evening. also rain, weatherfronts straddling central and northern parts, bringing a sunday evening. dry in the south, far north—west, apart from the wind gust, it will be very blustery. if you're heading out to bonfire events, it could be quite wet across northern and western areas, dry in the south—east, better chance of seeing dry weather across the board. tonight, the rainbow sinks south—east, confined to more south—western part of the country. dry ahead of it, east anglia and a south—east, a dry and tonight for scotland and northern ireland, remaining mild and very blustery. the remnants of the hurricane pushing northwards, taking
strong winds with it, another blustery day across scotland and northern ireland, but on the plus side it should be dry. some sunshine with the odd shower around. most of the cloud and rain further south and it was the south—west corner. a few showers around the northern isles, maybe it was the western isles through sunday afternoon, and still very strong wind, gusting a0 — 50 mph and western scotland. good spells of sunshine, very mild temperatures in the low teens, further south more cloud for england and wales where it will be wet into the west midlands, parts of wales and south—west england. it will be fine, dry and milder across south—east. monday, cloudy, wetter, but the very least you are a dry story with more sunshine. picking those winds up from the south, another mild one, temperatures reaching 15—16 celsius in the south—east, and despite the breeze and rain further north and west,

be the lucky team all the time but it as art —— with a result that you don't observe. tough one for us to take. we felt we produce a good performance in the first half especially when we were dominant and created chances. manchester united came back and showed that they are a world—class team. we would have loved to put the game bed in the moment when we were dominating. football does not work like that and we know one goal is a slim advantage in the show their quality in the second half and their subs made a difference. we did not defend one of the keep them out in the last seconds. let's look at the rest of the results. confirmation of that win for leicester and also victory for manchester united. elswhere everton were 3—1 winners over brighton — richarlison scoring twice fortheirwin infour premier league matches. newcastle united picked

so mark, what do we have this week? it is a packed week with peterloo, the epic drama from mike leigh. widows, which is an update of the miniseries from the ‘80s and mirai, a charming animation. peterloo, a massacre back in 1819. interestingly, mike leigh said one reason he wanted to make the film is not enough people knew about it. he said he wasn't taught about it at school. it was a peaceful demonstration, people demanding suffrage and better conditions, which was attacked by cavalry and there were deaths and terrible injuries. and we get in this film
is the leadup of the events, all the players of people who will be at the march and the protest. and the forces ranging against him. it starts on the battlefield. we see a traumatised soldier return to his home land and finding famine and he said we want a speaker to address the meeting. but his mother is sceptical that doing this is going to have any practical effect. here is a clip. there's going to be a big march. aye, mother, at petersfield. outside, not indoors. no. in broad daylight. yes. on a monday. on a monday? i know, it's daft. second monday in august. not go to work? aye, they'll have to make do without us. we'll get the staff. not if all the mills turn out. playing with fire. no, mother this one will be different. different how? well, there's hundreds going, women and children an' all. we're to turn out in our sunday best. oh, well i'd best get me darning needles out then.
aye, you should, same of rest of the street will be. i know they will. but so will that naidan and his bullies, the swine. they'll have to get past them. aye, but people have been practicing marching peacefully. aren't they, father? aye, up on kersal moor they say. do they? aye, whole families. it's a day out for everybody. we've to stand up for ourselves, esther. we can't go on being afraid. i know, love, but we've all got to be careful though. he has this large cast. in the first hour there are a lot of conversations and characters. everyone gets to have their see. some people might feel it is moving slowly to something we know is coming. but because you get to know the characters and the issues and everything aired so clearly,
by the time you get to the third act when the massacre happens, it is terrifying. it has the impact of a paul greengrass movie and it has real epic sweep. some people have said mike leigh is famous for dramas which centre on single characters. you forget mr turner or topsy turvy of the gilbert and sullivan operas. i thought it was powerful. certainly the screening i was at, people came out at the end and were stunned by it. i think it is interesting that mike leigh said he wanted to tell this story, because it is an important story people should know about and what it manages to do is make the past seem very contemporary and he puts you right there in the middle of the situation. although it is true it is a movie that takes its time and is quite wordy, when you get to the final act, you understand why.
i'm definitely going to see it. one of my friends is it in. he is a cavalry officer. widows, i remember the tv series. it was riveting. is this as good? i think that this is better. everyone was surprised when steve mcqueen said he would update this story. he updates it to present—day chicago with a group of women whose husbands are involved in crime and they have died and the women have the plans for a heist that didn't happen. now they will see if they can put this heist together. i love so much about this. firstly, it has a cast who are brilliant. viola davis is stand out. but the entire cast is brilliant. some some award ceremonies they have an award for ensemble companies. this should walk off for that.
the way they capture the location of chicago with extreme poverty and extreme wealth cheek byjowl. and it is co—written by gillian flynn who gone girl. and it is co—written by gillian flynn who wrote gone girl. the screen writing is sharp. it is not overly explanatory. but it is really riveting. i like a good heist movie. i did a tv programme about heist movies. but this turns it on its head. like that film set it off, it gives you a group of characters who you would not expect to be front and centre in a heist movie and you get to know their lives and situation and these are real women with real lives and real problems. i think it is terrific and you will love it. i know you are friends with someone didn't love it. stop being friends with them. mirai, a japanese anime fantasy.
yes by mamoru hosoda, the story starts with a young boy who discovers he is going to get a baby sister and he is thrilled. but as the drama goes on he discovers jealousies and a fantasy world in his garden, which is a portal to different views of time on his life. at the start all he wants to do his show his sibling the world. here is a clip. i'm your big brother, so i'm going to teach you a lot of different stuff, 0k? first i'll take you outside and i'm going to teach you the names of all the bugs. dragonfly! and then i'll show you how you can see things in the clouds. there's a scorpion! see? and that one... she's too little to take her outside just yet. you can take her when she's a bit bigger, all right? fine! the witch and mr moustache.
the witch was woken up by mr moustache so she got mad and chased him. and mr moustache ran. he got away byjumping on a train on the line. then the witch tried to follow him byjumping on a different line on the km line but the two trains went in different directions at the stakes and they got stuck for ages. knock it off! that is the english language dub. like many anime now this has been simultaneously released in english and the original version. as a critic, i tend to prefer the original language version, but there are many good versions for seeing the dubbed version. some people do not want to read subtitles and it opens up to a younger audience as well. i thought it was moving and enchanting. the style of the animation at the start is light and yet many of the themes it is dealing with are quite dark. there is a beautiful portrayal
of the mother and father and this slight tetchiness between them. the father is trying to to be a good father, but he is not doing as much as he should and the mother is annoyed with him, that all her friends think he is fabulous. because he isjoining in with the childcare but he is not doing anything as much as she is. i also think if you have kids you will recognise the rivalries between the siblings and it is the fine line between imagination and fantasia and it is grounded in things you recognise as being real. so i really liked it. jolly good. best out? the bfi have a season called comedy genius and reissuing 9 to 5 and some like it hot, that is considered by some to be not just the best comedy ever made, but the best movie ever made. it is terrific.
have you seen it recently? not recently. in the dim and dispant past. it is so funny and incredible how well it holds up. it is so sharp and very racy and very on the edge of what you think that kind of movie can get away with. i think it is terrific. worth another look. best dvd? leave no trace about a father and daughter living off—grid and being found by the authorities and how they then react to being found and brought back into society. i thought this was wonderful. it is made be the same film—maker who made winter's bone. i love when a film explains itself without somebody saying, "this is happening here." that never happens in leave no trace. i don't think it was seen by enough people in the cinema. at the moment it is my favourite film of the year. you're so positive. you love everything! i'm an upbeat kind of guy.
