We used to go to the cinema a lot, but since we've moved to South Gloucestershire haven't done so, always having found other things take over. However, we broke the ice last week by going to see "The Lady in the Van" at Cinderford. Maggie Smith was the draw, and the main character, although the storyline was based on Alan Bennett's memoirs. A touching and very thought-provoking film of an educated lady who resorts to living in a van on the street in an affluent part of London, moving her van when residents complained, and eventually parking temporarily on Alan Bennett's driveway. This becomes a permanent fixture, lasting for over 15 years, and brings together the residents in the street, who would otherwise have ignored one another.
