Just Like That
Saw The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe last night. I was a huge fan of the books as a child, so I was very apprehensive about the film adaptation. Happily director Andrew Adamson (Shrek 2) remained, I think, very true to the spirit and tone of C.S. Lewis' book. I recommend it.
There was a funny moment in the screening I went to. Near the end of them film, we see Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy as grown kings and queens. As we saw Peter's beard, the women's flowing gowns and everyone's feathered hair, you could everyone in the audience snickering as they realised the Pevensie children grew up to become Abba.
