The Spirit of Entertainment: Borrowing from the Best




3 versions of Mary Magdalene

I've never seen the stage play but I loved the film of Les Miserables. Everything has been borrowed from somewhere, but because they steal from only the very best of places ( a little bit of Oliver, Fiddler on the Roof, a dash of Bollywood, Cecil B. deMille set design, Mumbai and a whole load of the bible) it makes for a glorious film experience - a spectacle with sentimental moments that set the tears flowing down my cheeks.

Borrowing from the best - sometimes I think that is what it's all about really. And that in heaven at least, the revolution did come to pass.
