A Good English Film.

Now the old footy ball is finished I flicked through the Netflix films last night.  I always look at British films and chose The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

If you have never seen give it a whirl.  Starring English rose Lily James.  We saw her in Rebecca on Friday night too.  The film also stars one of my heroes Tom Courteney.  Who can ever forget him in Billy Liar? 

The film is set during and after world war two.  I won't spoil it for you but it's a good plot and I enjoyed the film very much.  Lily James is beautiful and a very good actress too.



Have you got any good Netflix film recommendations folks?  Anything daft or moving?

  1. On your recommendation I watched "1966". It was light-hearted and at times funny. I must admit I cried a little at the end. We Yorkshire lads are tough buggers but emotional too. That's why women love us.

  2. It was a very enjoyable film YP. The blind Rabbi was a wonderful character and the euphoria of the world cup final was brilliant. No other home nation ever won it. Don't think they ever will.

    4. Yes they are. Did you see "Clarkson's Farm" on Netflix? I don't really like the fellow but I enjoyed this six part documentary. A nice mixture of things.

  4. One film that has stuck in my mind is the 1990s Italian film Life Is Beautiful. I don't know if you can get it on Netflix.

  5. Thanks JayCee. I must look that one up. My favourite film is Shadowlands. It breaks my heart and it's so beautiful.

  6. I suppose you have already watched "Sophie, a murder in West Cork" together with half the country. If not, do, we raced through it in one long night.
