I work in a helping profession by day. At night I love to spend time with family, friends or reading good fiction. I enjoy going to the cinema. For me it is a form of escapism. It gives me a chance to be immersed in another world, another mind set. I like to be wowed by original themes and subject matters. I want to be enlightened and if possible, learn something. I enjoy quirky independent and foreign films. Hollywood schlock comedies, thrillers, horror and violence are not for me. I prefer not seeing a film twice and if I read the book I don’t feel compelled to see the movie, although sometimes I bend.
