Penguin Bloom Saturday, Feb 27 2021 

I invariably like Naomi Wattt’s work. This is a little gem of a film. And it is based on a true story. Through the love and concern of a bird (repaying the rescue of said bird when very young).a very depressed woman and her children learn to handle all the woe and drawbacks of being wheel- chair bound. And Sam was very active before her accident – an accomplished surfer. Then the mynah bird , Penguin, enters the scene and slowly but surely wins everyone’s hearts. A great film for the kids to watch with you.

Well, this show is very popular, and I do enjoy watching it, but I am an adult. It’s to say the least, pretty racy. Well written and acted though. The dialogue is sprightly and the characters are very well drawn. At one time I wanted to be an actress – I’m kind of glad I didn’t pursue that – it seems that very revealing and embarrassing moments involving intercourse are the name of the game these days. Shakespeare wasn’t this roudy. The humor -especially Lady Whistledown’s gossip rag , (played skillfully by Julie Andrews) is well done. Have the kids watch cartoons in another room.
