Movie: Keeping Mum
Started it Saturday night, finished on Sunday, Keeping Mum with Rowan Atkinson was a cute dark British comedy. Decent acting, which is no surprise given the cast, which also included Maggie Smith and Kristin Scott-Thomas, and a rather predictable story, but light and relatively amusing so the predictability wasn't a problem. Rowan Atkinson really is a comic genius. Patrick Swayze has an amusing scene or two. Has he had plastic surgery? I kept wondering, though. Has he? How does one research that sort of thing, and is it really worth the time spent doing so? I'm going to guess not and just let it go. Kristin-Scott Thomas makes a hilarious Swayze-related statement in the DVD extras. Really, I'm a sucker for anything with British accents. Good knitting background movie. I recommend it.
