Above & below: Russell Tovey in “My Family And Other Animals.”

Imelda marked off:

russelltovey: Saw Mike Leigh's 'Another year'... Beautifully depressing... desperate to know more of Imelda Staunton's characters journey! X

finlaymacintyre: @russelltovey I so agree about Another Year and Imelda Staunton's character.

DaleyBeee: @russelltovey guessing she didn't have one, probably left her therapy still thinking it was a load o crap. shame, she was very interesting.

musingonamac: @russelltovey You should see Happy Go Lucky beautiful Mike Leigh film.

SineadKeenan: @russelltovey She tripped, fell down a drain pipe, never to be seen again. Poor cow! X

LloydieJL: @russelltovey I found "Another Year" strangely uplifting. Amazing character work. x

roxannelawin: @russelltovey Oh me too. It was incredible. And also a bit glad I saw it on my own for fear of my friends/family going 'that will be you'.

phil_lamb: @russelltovey Mmm want to go and see this soon! Perhaps save the depression till after Xmas tho..?

HorshamiteHarry: @russelltovey love Mike Leigh. I have the full back catalogue.

mrjerremy211: @russelltovey Didn't she speak volumes, though, with the time she had? A masterful cameo

TimWolverine: @russelltovey Leslie Manville was amazing!

Sibri: @russelltovey love his films, it's like intruding on someone's life

Tom_In_Oz_: @russelltovey just put you and Imelda Staunton in "My Family & Other Animals" on blog before you tweeted - spooky!

My Week in Movies

20-12-2010 by Salmagundi

So while the rest of you have been enjoying your Harry Potter and your TRON Legacy, when I'm not OD'ing on Doctor Who, I've been watching this...

"My Family And Other Animals" tells the story of the Durrell family, Lawrence Durrell, Leslie Durrell, Margaret Durrell and Gerald Durrell, as well as their mother Louisa Durrell, as they spend five years (1935–1939) on the Greek island of Corfu. The family reside in a series of villas, and spend their time indulging in their varying interests. Gerald develops his passion for wildlife, his mother spends her time cooking; Larry writes; Leslie develops his passion for ballistics and sailing, whilst Margo sunbathes and enchants the local young men.

This was superb! The acting was wonderful. Imelda Staunton is amazing! Matthew Goode is lovely and his performance along with Russell Tovey led to many enjoyable fantasies of the two actors lying together on the beaches of Corfu.
My favourite quote from the movie (and, sorry, this may not be completely correct): "If you can control your family you've obviously gone wrong somewhere."

Tom_In_Oz_: @KilledByAShoe Nice action toys but not finished to a high degree (yet) needs more baking in the oven!

KilledByAShoe: @Tom_In_Oz_ Lol :') At least George isn't as beefy as the other ones...and Mitchell doesn't look TOO drunk...;)

Tom_In_Oz_: @KilledByAShoe I wish they guy on site had better pics I'd put George one on Tovey blog!

KilledByAShoe: @Tom_In_Oz_ Lol, I like the way George has his sports bag & the door to his cage (?). Whoever made it paid attention :D

Kinkyclawz: @KilledByAShoe @KnaveoG @Tom_In_Oz_ No teaser trailer yet, unless I missed it.

Lionesskeeper: @Tom_In_Oz_ Really, wow that's awesome Tom. :D

Tom_In_Oz_: @Lionesskeeper If you live in Oz you are always connected to someone famous... especially since we are only 200 years old as a country

Tom_In_Oz_: Just remember 33 United Kingdoms fit in Oz and we only have 25 million to spare.

KnaveoG: @Tom_In_Oz_ Yes but we have all the snow - wait I need to think on that again.

Lionesskeeper: @Tom_In_Oz_ Sort of similar here

Tom_In_Oz_: @KnaveoG Our snow region in Oz has about the same amount UK has only no-one in their right mind lives there except ski instructors!

KnaveoG: @Tom_In_Oz_ told you I need to think about it more.

20-12-2010 RosPratch: @russelltovey Did you know that the Russell Tovey moon [ie a full moon] goes red tonight in Australia. Yes, a total lunar eclipse.

20-12-2010 Tom_In_Oz_: @russelltovey had an epiphany the lunar eclipse means if a human bites a werewolf they change back to human *tell Toby it's a wow factor 10*

20-12-2010 steviewicks85: @russelltovey So glad you enjoyed it too! Had an argument with friends yesterday over why it was wonderful.

Snow & cricket both have something 2 do with being white - a tenuous link - but the lurgy is green!

dominictc: I want to do my weekend all over again. It may be bloody cold but I'm dancing to work as if I'm in a musical. Or a Disney princess.

dominictc: London Transport just pooed all over my Monday morning joy. OMG! What is this white stuff falling from the sky? Must stop EVERYTHING.

Tom_In_Oz_: @dominictc Keep smiling and break into a chorus of "singing in the rain" have ya got an umbrella - sweet!

dominictc: @Tom_In_Oz_ Now that's an idea! Give my Gene Kelly...

Tom_In_Oz_: @dominictc OK start by holding brolly & scooping snow with right foot near gutter...& whistle...most of all remember poise & balance OK

MatthewCainC4: Here's my latest blog on why I HATE cricket. I review the game as if it's an arts show and give it zero stars...

Tom_In_Oz_: @MatthewCainC4 one minute you had 1000 followers next you have cricket fans desert you!

MatthewCainC4: @Tom_In_Oz_ Ha ha, don't desert me! Write a reply on my blog and tell me why you disagree. I'd love to know what it is you like about it.

Tom_In_Oz_: @MatthewCainC It's not men in shorts, spandex or speedos. I watch it because of chess...don't like fast versions of cricket. BTW that's why Americans don't get cricket!

-2 hours pass-

Tom_In_Oz_:@MatthewCainC4 Matt finally read the replies to your cricket article. Score: Matt all out for 60 Others: win!

MatthewCainC4: @Tom_In_Oz_ Not at all! I'm not conceding defeat just yet. Like an interminable game of cricket this discussion could run for days...

Ralphwjbrown: *could*not*sleep*last*night*

Tom_In_Oz_: @Ralphwjbrown no sleep - was that because you were getting too cold?

Ralphwjbrown: @Tom_In_Oz_ the lurgy is preventing bed comforts. May have an afternoon kip once I've delivered this PA to it's owner
