Calendar Girls

Kalenderflickorna (2003)

A while ago I asked John Clarke to give us a talk here at Knapely WI. Annie asked me to read it to you here tonight, and this is what he wrote: ”The flowers of Yorkshire are like the women of Yorkshire. Every stage of their growth has its own beauty, but the last phase is always the most glorious. Then very quickly they all go to seed.”

”Which makes it ironic my favourite flower isn’t even indigenous to the British Isles, let alone Yorkshire. I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.”

Brittisk-amerikansk dramakomedi från 2003. När Annies man drabbas av leukemi bestämmer sig Chris och Annie för att göra en kalender som ska säljas till förmån för stadens sjukhus. Chris har en lite annorlunda idé om hur kalendern ska bli framgångsrik – alla kvinnorna ska posera nakna. Något som kanske inte uppskattas av alla. , Skådespelare: John Alderton, Linda Bassett, Helen Mirren, Julie Walters
