It's the end of a (movie) era...but this is a catch-up post, letting you know WHY I've been absent, as well as introducing you to my new(ish) venture, a podcast which will be all about life and everything in it (including movies)...
The Changeover is an amazing book. What it is not is the film that is apparently 'based' on it. I put myself through the pain of watching it so that other fans of Margaret Mahy's masterpiece don't have to...
Love isn't all about finding the 'one' and getting a perfect happily ever after. In fact, is it about that at all?
