Another Year, Another Chocolate Bean Hot Chocolate
The movie "Another Year" was showing at the Palace cinema on Rundle Street recently. Merkel, Myrtle and a couple of friends met there. "Another Year" was a movie divided into four seasons, featuring a sublimely happy ageing couple and their desperately lonely dysfunctional friends. Sitting through this movie was at times like being a part of some strange family's extended and fairly tedious dinner party. Nothing really happens and there seems to be no story and few surprises, but it does develop some very good characters with some highly skilled acting performances.
