Miss Haberdash and Mr Turner ....
In our house, going to the movies is a New Year's Eve tradition. This year Mr Turner was my pick, Timothy Spall stars and brings the artist to life warts and all! Growing up in Bury, Lancashire, our local art galleries prize exhibit was Turner's Calais Sands. So I was already excited to discover more about the famed artist. As you would expect this BBC co-production looks fabulous, cinematography and costume design are a joy, highly recommended and a great way to bring in the New Year.
