So to Trumbo at the Randwick Ritz at the early evening session, the most popular of the night. Squeezed forward to 6.00 pm to allow for an extra evening session of Deadpool (Tim Miller, USA, 2016) in the biggest cinema of the complex. Whether it was the early start time or not, the crowd had stayed away from Trumbo. A mere handful dotted the 900 or so seats.

But then there is Breaking Bad - six seasons of Vince Gilligan's amazing imagination (plus that of his team of writers, directors and actors including Cranston, which, according to one of my nephews at least, who may be right, is the greatest piece of television ever. So, when I'm watching Trumbo I'm not watching Bryan Cranston go round for his Oscar nomination, I'm watching sixty hours or so of the brilliant Walter White, chemistry genius and a man who turns out to have a mind that can overcome all adversity and one which ultimately becomes so steeled that no amount of murder and mayhem finally distracts him. Quite possibly my nephew is right.
