Remembering Anthony Minghella

Tomorrow is the first anniversary of Anthony Minghella's death. I really don't know how such a day should be commemorated. I did very much like hearing about the film festival on the Isle of Wight, hosted by Mr Minghella’s family and attended by Alan Rickman, Jude Law and Martin Freeman among others. I very much hope it will become an annual event, if only for the selfish reason that I might be able to attend it someday.

As for me, I still haven’t read Made in Bangkok, so I might read that. I have Truly, Madly, Deeply and The Wyvern Mystery, and I might watch them in that order; a deluge followed by a JD fix, which always seems to make everything better.

Thank you VERY much for visiting my blog.

Unfortunately my town wasn't mentioned in the film. But a great number of people from PICTON were probably excited.

My pleasure!

I know I would totally have squeed if Anthony Minghella or Michael Ondaatje had mentioned my hometown in one of their works. :-)

I didn't even realise it was his death anniversary. He was such a talented man.
