- Age of Adaline (Lee Toland Krieger 2015) 16 January 2021Silly, and surprisingly moving story about how terrible it is to be forever young! Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford in secondary roles lift it out of the shallows.
- Bridget Jones's Diary (Sharon Maguire 2001) 16 January 2021Apart from a trans joke that might be seen as sailing too close to the wind , this has aged vey well. All thee principals are perfect. I just read that the director, Sharon Maguire, is a good friend of Helen Fielding, who wrote the Bridget Jones books and has a writing credit for the movie. It shows.
- In Love with George Eliot (Kathy O'Shaughnessy 2019) 10 January 2021I must have read at least ten people saying that Middlemarch is the greatest English novel. I did love it as an undergraduate and it's on my list to reread. In the meantime, this was my Kris Kringle gift from the Book Group.
- Gideon Falls Volume 5: Wicked Worlds (Jeff Lemire and others 2020) 9 January 2021A Christmas present. This may be the final volume in this creepy series.
- Bridgerton (Chris Van Dusen 2020) 8 January 2021A regency romance with a strong fantasy element that at first just looks like 'colourblind casting'
- Age of Adaline (Lee Toland Krieger 2015) 16 January 2021
