I'm using lockdown to revisit a lot of favourite films. I'm finding I'm really drawn to stories about intimate human relationships, a sense of touch and hope. Next on my list is my own private Merchant Ivory retrospective with Maurice, Howard's End and A Room With A View.
I've been doing a lot of dancing in my kitchen to Jessie J, Little Mix and Girl's Aloud.
One of my favourite cinemas is Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds. My favourite memory is a retrospective screening of Working Girl holding hands with my ex-boyfriend.
I hope you like it.
