MISS PYM'S DAY OUT (Patricia Routledge) (1991)

I've only recently discovered Barbara Pym but she has already become an obsession. There is a gentleness to this movie/documentary. She is a lady through and through. Nothing harsh or violent or unrefined about here. And yet it is so very sad...a movie made about a day out, as she moves through her day, thinking her thoughts, fully aware that she has cancer, and that although she is in remission, the death sentence has been pronounced and she will not live out her sixties.
