When I am not reading, watching TV, or otherwise mentally occupied, I tend to fantasize about all kinds of arcane things. One fantasy that has been popping into my head lately is about seeing a Barbara Pym novel turned into a film. As far as I can tell it hasn't happened yet.
I think my first choice would be to see Some Tame Gazelle brought to life, with Excellent Women coming in second.
The fantasy extends to who might play various characters. In general I think the following actresses would make great Pym characters.
As I was hunting around for pictures of Sophie Thompson I found out that she is Emma Thompson's sister! How could I not know that until now? Emma would make a good Pym character as well.
And why is Greg Wise (Mr. Emma Thompson) here? Do I need a reason?
What do you think he is reading?
