After Kicking and Screaming, I watched Secrets and Lies. I'd been meaning to see it for years, and was annoyed because I missed the first half hour. My girlfriend assured me that it didn't matter and that nothing had happened, but I knew it had, because half an hour had passed since it had started. It was very good anyway; I was moved, not quite to tears because I'm tough, but moved anyway. I found Brenda Blethyn's performance hard to cope with at first because it so obviously wasn't what she's really like, but after a while I forgot about that and just got on with being moved.
