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.
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?
