The Mists of Avalon !
I read this book light years ago and enjoyed it. Heard it was to be made into a TV film/series and was looking forward to it but it did not air in
Have just caught up with it on DVD. What a brilliant, well cast, well acted film!
For those who have never heard of it/seen it - it is the Arthurian story told from the women's point of view - no, not rampant feminism - just a
very good tale. The book was huge so, obviously, the film could not cover it all but the essentials are there. Angelica Houston is a perfect 'Lady
of the Lake' - just the right balance between good and evil.
I would recommend it as an excellent way to spend an evening - as it is over three hours long you may want to have a bottle of wine and some
sandwiches to hand !
