The Song of Lunch: Sunday, November 13

Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson
Our favorite Colonel Brandon and Elinor Dashwood will be reunited in The Song of Lunch. Here is the synopsis on PBS:
When a middling copy editor/failed poet meets his former lover for lunch 15 years after their affair, he finds that everything — and nothing — has changed. From the tablecloths to the wine to his former lover, wealth and success now gloss the surface where kitsch and passion once held sway. He is bitter, petulant and increasingly inebriated; she is glamorous, generous, and eventually provoked. A dramatization of Christopher Reid's acclaimed narrative poem, The Song of Lunch stars Alan Rickman (Harry Potter films) and Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, film version) in the unnamed roles of He and She. Waiter, I'll take the nostalgia special with a side of recrimination and finish with regret, for a lunch that celebrates love and ambition with poignancy, humor, and affection.

It was as painful as watching Rick Perry stumble. Dreadful bit of dreck.

Two wonderful actors in a creative little 1 hour story...should have been enjoyable but instead was like fingernails on a chalkboard !!!
