I am love

This weekend, I dragged the Doctor and Plus One along to the movies. Plus One is the name I'm giving one of my closest friends, (she understands all about the dream elegant life).. I'm a great movie fan, I love them. I love the escapism they provide. While we were waiting for the film to start, I was reading the cinema free magazine, when I read about a movie which shone from the page like a glamrous chic beacon of the dream elegant life. I am desperate to see "I am Love", an Italian language film with Tilda Swinton. She plays the matriarch of a Milanese family, who has a passionate affair with a young man who is a friend of her sons. Now, I know that on the surface this sounds like the big screen version of a mills and boon, but the images of Tilda and the Italian countryside spoke to me. Even as I'm sitting having lunch at work on a particularly dull Thursday, I'm fantasing about the golden haze of the Italian country, and I can barely contain my excitement as I'll be travelling to Milan in several weeks time. Visiting a location I've seen I the movies is so exciting to me. Last year I travelled with the Doctor to Rome and dragged him around the many sights of the eternal city. From the Spanish steps in The Talented Mr Ripley to the spectacle of the colossium, by simply seeing these places for myself makes me feel a little bit closer to the

dream elegant life.
