Beautifully shot, blah blah blah, beautifully acted, blah blah blah, but boring as hell. Pity.

Switched off. Really disappointing. There is a dearth of films set between US independence and the civil war. (Compared with the number set afterwards.) This was a true story but it failed to tell the story.

What the conspiracy theory never explains is why Corbyn did better than expected when “Blairite" Labour officials helped run the 2017 campaign, but went down to ignominious defeat in 2019 when Corbyn was in total control.

One reason is that, in 2017, the argument ’Corbyn is never going to be PM, vote for your excellent Labour candidate’ had real purchase, while in 2019 it was dismissed out of hand.

Why would you look at the temperature today and think "you know what, I'll drive two hours on a baking hot motorway to go to a crowded beach with no shade, limited infrastructure, and thousands of other people"? Note: today is hotter than when I went to India in high summer
