Scene from Local Hero
Urquhart: [acting as bartender] I want you to try this Scotch. It's 42 years old.
MacIntyre: Old enough to be out on its own, then.
And tonight is no exception. Pot luck tea first, A & O will probably bring their usual delicious quiche and I'll make scalloped potatoes and a big bowl of salad (lettuce, avocado, sprouts and tomatoes) and we have spiced banana muffins to go with the cuppa at 'intermission'.
I've posted about this before...
We have long finished Dickens Our Mutual Friend epic.
So tonight perhaps we'll watch Kolya or maybe The English Patient, or The World's Fastest Indian.
Or maybe one of my favourite movies of all time; Local Hero. I know it was made in 1983, but I still love it. Dry humour, stunning scottish scenery. A gentle story that trickles along almost in the background, superb acting, unpretentious and understated dialogue, a great movie - sometimes melancholy, sometimes hilarious.
Oh and the wonderful soundtrack by Mark Knopfler.
