Went to see The Help, which conveyed racism in 60s America through a pair of spectacles that, if not exactly rosy, then certainly prettified the hideous reality in the gloriously euphemistic way that only Hollywood can. It was a load of tosh but passed a couple of hours that weren’t entirely disagreeable.
I liked the mother of the unmarried (at 23) lead character, the fact that she was in such a spin about her daughter’s lack of suitors and clearly worried about her time running out.
One could see the patent absurdity and felt that if only it were absurdity in my own case.
But alas my similar anxieties are all too un-absurd.
