Or shall I stick with salacious sleb gossip on IV2?

Oh is that the one based on a Graeme Green novel?

When is it on?

Sorry its on ITV at 9.30pm. It is based on a novel set in Africa (Nairobi I think)- but im not sure of the author

tiredOFTHEDMemma Sat 22-Aug-09 20:43:13

its by an author called John Le Carre

Yes 'tis good.

I think it its one of those films I have wanted to see but never had the opportunity.If it is what I am thinking of I reckon it will be a political espionage sort of thing.

Thanks for the heads-up.

It is good but upsetting.

Is it upsetting in a 'Blood Diamond' type upsetting way? (horrific violence etc?)

very very good but have tissues ready. I cried buckets.

I thought it was an amazing film & will be watching it (with tissues ready) later on.

It's just terribly, terribly sad.

It is well worth a watch sad

i liked it - am debating if im gonna watch it again but be warned - get the tissues out. its not what it appears - gets quite deep, excellent film though.

Ill watch it then. I love a good, meaningful weepy.

Im assuming that there is some 'message' in there somewhere? Am I right in thinking that it is linked to Pharmaceutical companies? (Im sure thats what someone told me once at college)
