Just watched Small Island. Wow. I think that was one of the best things I’ve seen in a while. Such perfectly written characters, solid dialogue, excellent actors, such as Naomie Harris. She was brilliant. Benedict Cumberbatch is in it, too, but even to me, rather overshadowed by Harris, Ruth Wilson, David Oyelowo and Ashely Walters. Aww heck, they all overshadowed eachother - in a good way! I can’t get over how these characters are all actual people, living breathing people. I wonder if the book is even better than the film. Probably is.
If you want to reblog this without my comments, by all means do, none of the pictures are mine. I just made the combo to represent the proportions of the movie better rather than the ones I keep seeing. (Fixed the colour balance, if you get my drift. It was not a movie about Bernard).
