I was the only person in the Wimbledon HMVCurzon cinema – a first for me! That wasn’t too surprising as it was a lovely sunny day and it would have been lunchtime for most people.
Incidentally, an air-conditioned cinema on a hot day can feel uncomfortably cold.
As for the film, it’s s 66 minute, sub-titled, stop-motion animation. Set mainly in a small orphanage, it’s OK, it’s cute and it has a happy ending, but I can’t say I was as impressed as the critics. It didn’t help that it was so cold – brrr.
With 25 minutes to spare before my return train, I entered Copperfield Books, a very cramped but large, second-hand bookshop and came away with three novels. It’s well worth a visit as well as a repeat visit.
