The Power of One

Post by Penguin » Sun Jul 31, 2016 9:22 pm

The Power of One move was on tonight. I remember as a child, the very early scene where Peekay is fed by his Nanny and I was confused - I asked Mum about it and she explained that Nanny had had a baby too and that you could feed other people's babies. I remember at the time thinking this was pretty amazing information.

(Now I'm just crying floods of tears. Have turned the movie off; I don't have the strength for this movie tonight. Part of me wants to watch it an just cry until I'm out of tears, but I can't do that.)

I do remember that scene though. I can't describe my reaction to it.

It's a tough movie to watch. I've seen it once. Pretty sure I've read the book too.
I don't remember the scene unfortunately.

One of my favourite books. That, and it's sequel Tandia. I only saw the movie once though and didn't think it did the book justice so I haven't watched it again!

I tweeted a pic. Nanny feeds Peekay while Peekay's mum reads a book and drinks tea, then she feeds her own son.

I saw the movie first as a child. I can't remember how old I was - maybe 8ish? Haven't read the book in years. Some significant plot differences in the book and movie IIRC?

I loved Tandia too. I don't think I read it until I was at uni.
