Wonder if this will reignite interest in "Frankenstein" which is doing the rounds again in cinemas. Similar staging ideas (eg the bell, the house, etc) and similary Tory-MP-baiting multicultural casting.
I thought that, quite frankensteinish just bigger!
and Latecomer this is you
Nice little story going on in the "internet and modern age" bit. Boy sees girl, boy likes girl, girl disappears having dropped phone. Boy rings girl to give back phone......
Only HOW? She no longer has her phone.....who does he call?
I know the modern age is clever but ????
Or perhaps I missed something?
No I wondered that too! and yes I felt that bell couldn't be rung a lot harder! Loved the beginning pastoral into industrialisation, though realised should have tuned in earlier to see all the animals, i missed the chickens, were they there? And what is it about seeing actors at the theatre which then makes you all proud when you see them somewhere else, lovely biting on that cigar from Mr Branagh, although it is actually sir these days isn't it. One of my favourite games which i admit no one else gets is how many people in this programme/film have i seen at the theatre.............perhaps i should get out more?

Be assured that I do use Waitrose whenever I want to spend £7 on a lump of cheese.
Branagh chomping on a cigar was presumably the part Mark Rylance withdrew from - not sure he could have brought much more to it. Stephen Daldry was apparently the overall producer for all the ceremonies (including paralympics), who is directing the closing ceremony ?

Oh, don't look forward to the commentary, it was idiotic, intrusive and totally superfluous.

Well it was directed by someone who does concerts, I think it was pretty well known that this was the big music gig as opposed to the opening ceremony which was very theatrical. Still, it was very good for what it was and I loved the Darcy Bussell bit near the end.
Then I check the news and find out that Rory McIlroy won the US PGA with other Briitish golfers packing the top places! Unreal.
I managed to get a number of tickets through persistence including and I can't believe I checked the website at exactly the right time for Super Saturday in the stadium, an incredible evening, an incredible fortnight, at least I've got Edinburgh next week to fill the gap that is now left.
