A Place to Live

The feature film How to Lose Friends and Alienate People was adequate. The Coles ventured to the heart of the metropolis on Saturday to watch local lad Simon Pegg’s latest role. He plays a British writer, Sidney Young, cast adrift in the irony-free world of New York celebrity with only his erstwhile British wit and vague eccentricity to keep him sane. There were plenty of humorous set pieces to chortle at and a very knowing and enjoyable moment when my dear old home town of Gloucester is mentioned. However, if one really wants to see Pegg in a fabulous piece of work, a perusal of the two series of Spaced is a must. Kirsten Durst played Kirsten Durst with no little aplomb while Miriam Margoyles produced another ‘hilarious’ cameo. I’d read the book if I were you.
