pimp the good stuff, my people!
There is way too much soul-debasing garbage out there. Let’s tell the world when we find creative work that is good, original, even uplifting.

My wife is likely fighting the Wuhan Virus. So we have spent time inside this weekend. And we watched a delightful, accomplished, and exceedingly fine film called Emma. Released in 2020, it’s a sumptuous, funny, sweet, and ultimately very moving adaptation of a Jane Austen novel.
Not an Austen purist myself, I’ve never read the source material. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the film and as soon as it is available on BluRay, it will be mine.
Currently, it can be streamed on Amazon Prime, and this hard-bitten historical fiction novelist can’t recommend it (or the lead actress, Anya Taylor-Joy, a young woman of scary talent) highly enough.
