In response to failing memory..., written by Kate on June 12, 1998 at 08:49:13
] I last saw the mini series in 1982 (!) so I'm really struggling to remember, but I thought it was at least implied that Sebastian was into drugs, and involved with a local boy... before he got his religion back!
In the book it mentions he picks up this stray kid to take care of, but again, I didn't realize it would be a physical relationship. I thought that because he felt alone and unhappy, he'd take care of another waif to make him feel perhaps more valuable?
] See above my comments about how long it is since I've seen it. I do remember that Andrews was very camp as I said before - I personally think it's his best work as an actor (and Jeremy Irons is very good in it too, and Lawrence Olivier's in it), and if you're an AA fan then you should see it. IMO it's good to see actors stretch themselves beyond what we expect of them. Why not get it out and watch the first hour and see what you think? Apart from anything else, it's a landmark piece of TV, one of the best things the BBC has ever done.
Yes, I put the first episode on hold, so will watch it and see what I think before I continue on to the others. I've heard so much about it, so I'm too curious now :-)
] Oh, and your confusion about Fried Green Tomatoes can only be good, also IMHO - these two women obviously had a close and loving relationship, which you seemed to think was good, so why should whether or not they were lesbians change that? But I realise this is a subject on which people can differ...
Well, I know, I thought it was touching that they were so close, but it kind of spoils it when I found out they were lesbians, because it kind of "tarnishes" the "pure" "lust-less" love that I had thought it was. . .
] sorry, didn't get the picture.
