Well on a lighter note I watched the three episodes of 'Pursuit of Love' written by Nancy Mitford, featuring Lily James as Linda and Emily Beecham as Fanny. Beautifully and subtly produced against a background of a large house and grounds. Pretty dresses of course, would it not be lovely to swan round in that era. But we can't - housework calls.
I visualise the time as a cup of black coffee with a whirl of whipped cream on top, my favourite as a child - but now coffee has grown up into an adult of many ways and taste!
The darkness is there of course, women's lives pinned to a rigid discipline of being feminine, rich and middle class women were still to arrive in the jobs category though this was beginning to happen through the second world war. The communist bit was almost like a shock of water thrown in not quite as realistic as expected.
Well acted, good set of actors, though I found Linda a little overplayed, but basically it was a story of Linda going from one man to another and me bleating in the background - where did all the f****** money come from!
