Philomena

Philomena es la adaptación del libro de Martin Sixsmith (intepretado por Steve Coogan) que cuenta la historia de Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), una mujer irlandesa que se quedó embarazada, su familia la echó de casa y acabó en un convento donde tuvo que trabajar (siete días por semana en los trabajos más duros) durante cuatro años para obtener el privilegio de poder ver a su hijo una hora al día, y cuyo hijo fue adoptado. Ahora (2002) que su hijo cumpliría cincuenta años le cuenta la historia a su hija, quien se la cuenta a Martin (a quien han ‘resignado’ de su puesto de spin doctor, después de muchos años como corresponsal de la BBC y periodista político). Al principio él tacha la historia de puro “interés personal”, por debajo de sus habilidades e intereses (está empeñado en escribir un libro sobre historia rusa que parece no interesarle a nadie), pero al final decide hacerlo.

Aunque no he leído el libro, Steve Coogan, que también ha escrito el guion, ha hecho un gran trabajo, por un lado contando el desarrollo interior de los dos personajes, y por otro haciendo que su interacción y la relación entre ambos se convierta en el corazón de la historia.

The Magdalene Sisters

El fondo histórico de la novela (una historia real) ha sido contado en otras ocasiones (Las hermanas de la Magdalena, En el nombre de Dios). Es difícil creer que cualquier credo religioso pudiera usarse para encarcelar a mujeres y separarlas de sus hijos, por pecados cometidos. Y cuando nos enteramos de que encima cobraban por las adopciones, es aún peor. El personaje de Sor Hildegard en la película representa la personificación de lo peor de la religión, y el hecho de que Philomena sea amable y comprensiva con ella la transforma en un personaje aún más ejemplar y generosa de espíritu.

En lo que Philomena se diferencia de otras películas con temas similares es en como enfoca al personaje principal. La película nos muestra las dudas y ambivalencia de esta mujer, que sigue siendo muy religiosa, devota de la fe Católica, y que continuamente subvierte las expectativas de Martin, que la ve como una mujer mayor de poco entendimiento y sutileza. Al final él llega a apreciar su resistencia, su generosidad y su actitud abierta y comprensiva. Y como en las mejores relaciones, los dos cambian y crecen como personas al conocerse.

¿Es una película triste? Bueno, la historia es triste, la realidad histórica reflejada por la película es terrible e indignante (y es hora de que se haga algo oficial para ayudar a esas madres a encontrar a sus hijos), pero el balance entre momentos tristes y divertidos, la maravillosa interacción entre los personajes, y la personalidad y actitud de Philomena la convierten en inspiradora y optimista.

Me encanta Judi Dench y aquí está perfecta y tan desinteresada y generosa como siempre. Quiero mucho a mi madre pero con mucho gusto adoptaría a su personaje como madre. Steve Coogan demuestra que también puede interpretar personajes serios de forma impecable, y su guion es fantástico. Y viendo la película uno sospecha que su creación debió ser toda una experiencia. Por supuesto Stephen Frears es un gran director y presenta la historia sin exageraciones estilísticas innecesarias ni otras distracciones.

Recomiendo Philomena de corazón. Os hará pensar, miraréis a vuestra familia con otros ojos, y os hará sentiros mejor.

Y si os interesa ver alguna otra historia de adopciones injustas y desarraigo, os recomiendo Naranjas y sol (Oranges and Sunshine) y Generación robada/Cerca de la libertad.

As you know Friday is usually the day to bring you a guest author. Whilst writing a post on Elizabeth Gaskell (and talking about BBC TV series) Sherlock Holmes came to mind, and I thought, yes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. (I won’t enter into the debate of Conan Doyle being a composite name or Doyle alone being the surname, and Conan a middle name, that seems to be the generalised view, but I think it sounds good nonetheless). I should have thought about him before, as we share professions (he was a doctor, and evidently a writer) but…it’s never too late.

There are very thorough biographies, but I won’t go into a lot of detail and I’ll leave you links so you can expand at your leisure.

Conan_doyle

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (22 May 1859 – 7 July 1930) was born in Edinburgh of Irish descent. Due to his father’s problems with alcohol his childhood was quite disrupted and the family separated and were spread around Edinburgh. Thanks to wealthy relatives he was educated at several Jesuit schools including in Austria. He later studied Medicine in Edinburgh, training in a variety of locations including Birmingham and Sheffield (I also work in Sheffield!). While he was studying he started writing and published some of his work in magazines. He also wrote articles for the BMJ (British Medical Journal).

When he completed medical school and was fully qualified he worked as a doctor in a Greenland whaler and later worked as ship surgeon on the SS Mayumba (travelling to West coast of Africa). He completed his Doctorate in 1885.

He initially settled as a partner with another doctor in Plymouth but the partnership didn’t work out and with little money he moved to Portsmouth (where he also played football) and settled as General Practitioner. The business was very slow and he started writing to pass the time. He wrote short stories, some inspired by his time at sea, including a version of the mystery of the Marie Celeste that he would popularise.

He had some difficulty publishing his work and the first story to be published in 1886 was A Study in Scarlet where Sherlock Holmes and Watson appear for the first time (he sold rights for £25). It got good reviews and proved popular and other works with the same characters were later commissioned. It seems that several people who knew his university professor, Joseph Bell, recognised many of his characteristics in Sherlock Holmes (including Sir Robert Louis Stevenson…I guess I should invite him too).

He published The Sign of the Four a continuation of the story in 1890, but feeling exploited by the publishing company he left them and started writing for others including the Strand magazine.

Sherlock Holmes was not his only subject and amongst other things he collaborated with J.M. Barrie on a libretto (and somebody else for the list…).

Apart from the aforementioned football he was also a keen cricketer and golfer.

Sir_Arthur_Conan_Doyle_and_family

He married twice (his first wife died of Tuberculosis in 1906), and had 2 children from his first marriage and three from his second marriage, 2 daughters and 3 sons.

In 1890 he studied Ophthalmology in Vienna and settled to practice in London. He again said he did not have many clients and dedicated himself to writing.

He told his mother in 1891 that he was thinking of killing Sherlock Holmes and she told him not to. He did in 1893 (or so it seemed). Due to public outrage he brought him back in the Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901 (although it was set before the Moriarty and Sherlock plunge into ReichenbachFalls in The Final Problem). In 1903 in The Adventure of the Empty House he explained how only Moriarty had fallen, but Holmes had faked his own death to fool his enemies. Sherlock appeared in 56 short stories and 4 novels by Doyle and in many stories by others (not to mention the many movie and TV adaptations).

He was interested in politics, wrote in defence of the UK actions in the Boer War in South Africa, (and he believed those writings got him the Knighthood). He also became a supporter of the Congo Free State campaign and wrote about it. (Some characters in The Lost World were inspired by his associates in the original campaign). He also stood for Parliament twice as a Liberal Unionist, but didn’t get elected.

Doyle also took an interest in miscarriages of justice and was involved in two successful appeals against convictions, in 1906 the case of George Edalji (beautifully narrated in the novel by Julian Barnes Arthur and George, 2005, that I wholeheartedly recommend) and in 1909 Oscar Slater. It is in part because of his efforts that the Court of Appeal was established in 1907.

Cottingley_Fairies_1

Following a number of tragic occurrences (death of his wife, of one of his sons in WWI, of his brother, two brothers-in-law and two nephews), he became quite depressed and found refuge in Spiritualism. He was a member of the Ghost Club were they sought to prove evidence of paranormal phenomena, and he was convinced that the photographs of the Cottingley fairies were true. He was friends with Harry Houdini who also believed in Spiritualism but spent much of his time proving many mediums were frauds.

He died of a heart attack on the 7th July 1930 in Crowborough, where he had lived for 23 years. Initially buried in a rose garden as he did not consider himself Christian he was reburied with his wife in 1940 in Minstead churchyard in the New Forest, Hampshire.

Today, as most Fridays, I bring you a guest author. It is time for another classic, a female Victorian writer who became quite popular during her life time and recently, thanks to TV adaptations, has regained many followers. Elizabeth Gaskell.

There is plenty of information about her and I leave you some links to both her life and works, to free versions of her novels and stories, and also some links to adaptations of her work to TV. I love Cranford that I think is one of these gems that the BBC can produce every so often (many are period pieces, but not all, and I also love their adaptation/modernisation of Sherlock Holmes…that makes me think, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle should be on my list of guest for the future…). If you haven’t watched it and can get hold of it…do. And let me know what you think.

Before I’ll share a brief biographical note with you but do check the links for much more detailed information.

Biography:

Elizabeth Stevenson was born in London on 29 September 1810, the daughter of a Unitarian minister. Her mother died when she was only 13 months old and her father sent her to live with her aunt, Hannah, who lived in Knutsford in Cheshire. Her father remarried but she spent little time with him and his new family. Her brother, who joined the Merchant Navy, died when she was 18 and her father died shortly after.

She spent some time in Newcastle but would usually go back to Knutsford (that was her inspiration for Cranford). In 1832, she married William Gaskell, also a Unitarian minister, and they settled in the industrial city of Manchester. She helped her husband with his welfare work and took special interest in helping the poor and destitute in the rapidly developing industrial city.

wgaskell                                                                                                    William Gaskell, her husband

Her first child, a girl, was a still born, and following the birth of her second child, marked by her loss, she started keeping a diary of the development of her children. She had a son William, but he died of scarlet fever. She was very affected by it, and her husband suggested that she could take up writing a full-length novel to try and distract herself. Her first novel, ‘Mary Barton’, was published anonymously in 1848. It was an immediate success, winning the praise of Charles Dickens and Thomas Carlyle. It discussed the life of the poor in Manchester and it showed a good eye for detail and local customs and dialogue. It was the first of her ‘industrial’ works.

Dickens invited her to contribute to his magazine, ‘Household Words’, where her next major work, ‘Cranford’, appeared in 1853, in installments. Although he published a number of her works, including short stories and ‘North and South’ (published in 1854), they had major disagreements, particularly due to the length of her novels, and he unwillingness to follow his editorial advice. I’ve read in several of her biographies that he said if he had been her husband he would have beaten her up. Gaskell’s work brought her many friends, including the novelist Charlotte Brontë who visited her often. When Charlotte died in 1855, her father, Patrick Brontë, asked Gaskell to write her biography. The ‘Life of Charlotte Brontë’ (1857)  made her even more popular although some critics queried the amount of personal detail included.

She spent time in the South, traveled abroad with her daughters, and had just bought a new house when she had a massive heart attack in October 1865, dying on 12 November 1865, leaving her longest work, ‘Wives and Daughters’ incomplete.

You know I’ve decided that I should bring some classic authors as guests to my blog, not only because it’s always a pleasure to remind myself of their work (and hopefully those who read my posts) but also because we have the advantage that many of their works are available for free and it always offers us an opportunity to read them again or even get to know some we’re not so familiar with.

Today I decided to visit a great favourite with many people, not only readers but also those who make film adaptations and TV series. Jane Austen. We all have our favourites novels, and also adaptations (I quite like Ang Lee’s Sense and Sensibility movie although on TV Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth…is still probably my favourite. I also love the novel. Yes, and Mr Darcy).

Brief biography:

Jane Austen was born on the 16th of December 1775. His father was a reverend in Steventon. She was the 6th of seven children and only the second of two daughters and she became quite close to her sister Cassandra (her mother was also called Cassandra). Henry, one of her brothers, would become her agent in later life.

At age of 8 she was sent to boarding school with her sister where she would learn what was felt to be appropriate education for a woman at the time (French, music and dancing…). At home it seems she was always interested in reading and writing and they would make their own plays that the family would perform.

In 1789 she started to write more seriously (Love and Friendship) and a bit later started writing plays. In 1795 she met Tom Lefroy (if you have watched Becoming Jane Austen you’ll remember he’s played in that movie by James MacAvoy) the nephew of a neighbouring family who was in London studying Law. Unfortunately neither of the two families being of means it appears it was felt such union would not be in their interest and he was sent away.

She worked on some stories that later would evolve into her novels. Her father retired when she was 27 and they moved to Bath, a spa town that was the epitome of class and high society (everybody who was anybody would go there to take the waters and to be seen, it seems).

In Bath she received a proposal of marriage by a childhood friend, Harris Brigg-Wither, her only one. She initially said yes, as he was to receive and inheritance who would have secured her and her family’s subsistence, but she thought better of it and the next day she refused.

In 1803 her brother sold Susan to a publisher who promised to publish it but didn’t and there were difficulties with rights afterwards.

Her father died in 1805 leaving the three women in a difficult situation. They moved frequently until her brother Frank offered them a cottage where they moved when she was 33. She dedicated herself to writing there and her brother sold Sense and Sensibility to Thomas Egerton who published it in 1811. It got good reviews and the whole edition was sold by 1813.

The same publisher seeing how well it had done in 1813 published Pride and Prejudice. It was even more successful and he published a second edition. Mansfield Park although less well received by critics was a public success and became the most commercially successful of her works during her lifetime. Jane move on to publisher John Murray who published a new edition of Mansfield Park, Emma, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey. Her brother Henry’s bank failed and Jane made efforts to regain the rights to Susan that was then published as Catherine.

In 1816 her health began to fail but she carried on working. In January 1817 her sister Cassandra and brother Henry took her to Winchester to seek medical help and there she died on July the 18th 1817 leaving some unfinished works. Her brother published her complete works and revealed her real identity.

Mis protestas sobre promociones de libros me hicieron tomar la decisión de que ya que no sé qué funciona (y no he encontrado muchos estudios usando metodología ciéntifica sobre el tema y menos aún que me sean aplicables) más vale que haga cosas que me gustan. Una de ellas es escribir. También me encanta leer y seguiré teniendo autores invitados (incluso clásicos que han sobrevivido el paso del tiempo), pero también me gustan otras cosas. A menudo voy al cine y al teatro y a veces voy a ver otras cosas.

El 24 de Mayo, fui a ver la Bella Durmiente, el famoso ballet con música de Tchaikovsky. Matthew Bourne, para los que no le conozcáis, es mucho más que un coreógrafo. Sus ballets son creaciones en todos los sentidos, donde todo (la historia, la música, la danza, el vestuario, el escenario) es parte de la historia. Si sólo pudiera decir una cosa sobre él diría que aburrido desde luego no lo es. Sus ballets no son los típicos formales con tutus y puntas que la mayoría de la gente imagina cuando les mencionan un ballet. Aunque hace versiones de clásicos (aunque también ballets completamente nuevos como ‘Dorian Gray’ o ‘Car Man) y la calidad de la danza es tan buena, si no mejor, que nada que hayáis visto, nunca es exactamente la historia que recuerdas.

Yo llevo siguiendo su trabajo hace 9 ó 10 años, aunque su compañía, New Adventures (Nuevas Aventuras), celebra el 25 aniversario este año. Mi primer contacto con él fue cuando le oí entrevistado en Radio 2 (BBC) hablando de su ballet ‘Highland Fling’ (y dejadme que os diga que lo que él define como ‘un pequeño ballet escocés’ empieza con una escena en unos urinarios. La fantasía de la historia aumenta a medida que avanza, y a mí me encantó el hada con su maletita) que estaba de tour por el Reino Unido. Como estaba programado en el teatro del centro Lowry (si tienen oportunidad de visitar Manchester no se pierdan The Lowry y su vecino The Imperial War Museum North. Los dos son unos edificios modernos increíbles y siempre tienen exhibiciones interesantes) tuve que ir. Y le he seguido desde entonces.
Pero ya basta de preámbulos. Hablemos de ‘La Bella Durmiente’. Matthew (no estoy segura de que deba tutearle, pero como lo he visto en vivo en una ronda de preguntas le considero un amigo. Espero que sea mutuo) tuvo que cambiar la historia un poquito. En el programa explica que uno de los problemas con la historia es que el príncipe llega al final, rescata a Aurora y pin pan, ya está. No hay historia de amor ni romance. Así que decidió que Aurora y Leo (él no es un príncipe, es un jardinero del castillo) se conocen y se enamoran antes de que ella se duerma. Uno de los problemas que yo tengo con la historia es que Aurora se pasa la mayor parte del cuento dormida y es un objeto de deseo (y desvalida que necesita protección y rescate masculino). Aunque eso pasa, la Aurora de esta versión parece ser el resultado de algún arreglo entre los padres de Aurora y el hada mala, y es una criatura un pelín especial. La maravillosa marioneta que sustituye a Aurora de bebé es muy salvaje, trepando por las cortinas, y sin hacer jamás lo que se espera de ella. La joven Aurora también es un espíritu libre y nada le gusta más que quitarse los zapatos y bailar descalza por el bosque.
¿Qué otras cosas cambian? Sí, algunas de las hadas son hombre (no es una gran sorpresa, si habéis visto su Cascanueces ya sabéis que hay hadas de todas tallas, formas y sexos) y…si os gustan los vampiros…os gustará este ballet. Hay otro malo, teléfonos móviles y ropa moderna (incluso sudaderas), vestuario magnífico, danza bellísima y expresiva…
A mí los ballets de Matthew Bourne me parecen muy cinematográficos y son un espectáculo completo. Cuenta unas historias maravillosas y el ballet es un medio de expresión más que un fin en sí mismo.
¿Algún pero? Probablemente preferiría música en directo. Y a pesar de lo que me encantó la marioneta, a veces los aspectos técnicos de tener que cambiar el muñeco hacían rechinar un poco los engranajes de la producción.
Si tenéis oportunidad de ver éste o cualquier otro de sus ballets, no la dejéis pasar. Si os gusta el ballet porque son fabulosos. Si no os gusta, porque son refrescantemente diferentes y mágicos.
Gracias por leer!
