There were two devastating deaths this past week, of beloved Brits David Bowie and Alan Rickman. Someone on Instagram commented that both would have made magnificent codgers if they’d had the chance.
There are YouTubes aplenty of both of them. For our Lazy Sunday knitting pleasure, I chose a lesser-known, short TV movie, The Song of Lunch. It stars Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson as old flames who meet for lunch 15 years after separating. The film is narrated by Rickman; it’s a kind of poem. It’s a bit depressing, but searing in its honesty, and a showcase for Rickman’s famous voice.
Here’s a trailer:
And here’s the whole film on You Tube:
