I’ve been missing in action for the past few weeks, work has been busy and exciting, life has been fun and consuming, I haven’t had the time to dedicate to inspiring things. That’s all about to change. I’ll be blogging like crazy soon and bringing you the following:
inspiring people; and
much much more.
I had the pleasure of helping two fantastic friends celebrate ‘significant’ birthdays on Saturday over a long lunch with cocktail affair in the evening, it was a great chance to catch up with people I don’t get to see too often, who’s company I always enjoy, all asking… when are you blogging next? So here I go.
Over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend I took one of my fabulous friends Jane along to see an amazing movie - Little White Lies. A modern and French take on the 80’s classic ‘The Big Chill’, this fabulous film took me on a journey of friendship, passion, laughter and heartache. It follows a group of friends embarking on their annual summer break tainted by one being involved in a serious accident. What unfolds is a group grappling with the little white lies they have been telling each other, and having to face up to them.
Directed by Guillaume Canet starring an amazing cast including Marion Cotillard François Cluzet and Benoit Magimel, this beautiful film was shot against a stunning backdrop of Cap Ferret (destination: yes please) it's a movie which symbolises what friendship is, what we all endure, and the little white lies we tell each other.
Not unlike The Big Chill, this movie offers a fantastic soundtrack, featuring music by Jet, Damien Rice, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Janis Joplin, David Bowie, Antony and The Johnsons to name a few. I'll be putting this up loud in my car very soon!
I'm in love with this film, I laughed out loud, it made me think, had me wiping away tears, and most of all made me realise that with any group of friends we all have our little white lies.
