How comforting! Michele Hanson writes a column called A certain age in the Guardian. In the 15/04 issue both Michele and her friend are enraged, infuriated. Why? it is the BBC 4 Book of the Week again. I quote ” Rosemary had tuned into book of the Week, which was ‘exploring the taboo of elderly people’s sexuality’, and assumed it was just more bossiness from on high – learn a new language, make curtains , have sex until you drop dead – that sort of thing. Be happy….”
There must be a lot of angry old women about. Has anybody heard the whole book and cares to share their opinions about it?
Yes I must go back to Volver before this blog turns into an ‘ageism’ blog. But after all it is ageism that spurred me to study films. So no apologies.
