Went out for a bit of a walk and to buy my usual Saturday indulgent pastry at the market.

At 3pm I was to project a movie, which I did using my newer MacBook. That almost turned into a disaster when I messed up something just as the movie was starting. But I recovered.

The movie that Karen (the movie event manager) had chosen was The Father, Anthony Hopkins playing an old man whose memory is going all wonky and Olivia Coleman as his desperate daughter. We experience what he does, a life in which things keep changing, and nothing is quite the same from yesterday to today. It was very affecting and Hopkins’ performance is stunning.
