I went to see Shakespeare Behind Bars and it was really moving. It was one of those movies that filled in my picture of life a little bit more — the lives of criminals and life in prison — and I shifted how I see the world a bit. I just watched the trailer on the website which doesn’t really give justice to the film, but knowing the story I started to tear up again. Definitely worth seeing if you get the chance.
Other activities for the day were less moving. Eggspectations had a nice bloody mary and reasonable crepes, but the hollandaise sauce tasted like mayo and butter. L’Auberge espagnole was cute and had its moments, but I was unentertained by what I saw as the protagonist’s largely passionless philandering.
