State of Play

We took in the late performance of "State of Play" Sunday evening (poster below).

For once, Clare had us go early to make sure we got a seat at what would surely be an extremely popular film. In fact we bought the third and fourth tickets for the show. I think the cinema had an occupancy of around seven people as the film started.

Overall a good two hours entertainment. Helen Mirren as newspaper boss was as unconvincing as the critics had suggested, and thankfully an ageing (but still gorgeous - Clare) Russell Crowe was spared a liaison with his pretty-but-youthful blogging sidekick Rachel McAdams, having to settle instead for the ageing-but-still-blonde wife of the errant congressman.

It was fun: enjoy.
