Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes in Bodyguard
 Metropolitan Police Service. When he is assigned to protect the ambitious and powerful Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes), whose politics stand for everything he despises, Budd finds himself torn between his duty and his beliefs. Responsible for her safety, is he actually her biggest threat?



NEW 'BOOKSHOP' POSTER 
STARRING EMILY MORTIMER, BILL NIGHY AND PATRICIA CLARKSON
Speaking of Brits, check out the new poster for this month drama movie BOOKSHOP based on Penelope Fitzgerald's novel set in 1959! Florence
Bookshop opens next week in England
Green (Emily Mortimer), a free spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop - the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. Fighting damp, cold and considerable local apathy she struggles to establish herself but soon her fortunes change for the better. By exposing the narrow minded local townsfolk to the best literature of the day, she opens their eyes thereby causing a cultural awakening in a town which has not changed for centuries. Her activities bring her an ally in Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy) who is himself sick of the town's stale atmosphere. But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town's less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Mrs. Gamart (Patricia Clarkson)!

  2. I was just thinking about Bookshop just yesterday. Funny you should post it today. I am really looking forward to that.

    I have my surgery tomorrow, so I may be late to your post. I meant to follow up with you on Twitter this week, but things got wonky here. I'll be sure to update as soon as I can :)

    1. I wish British films had better marketing, even Guernsay Potato Peel Pie and Book Society went rather unnoticed.

      I will be thinking of you, dear, and sending you positive thoughts! Be brave!

  3. The book shop sounds like such a sweet film and very much like "Chocolat"!

  4. In reality, a bodyguard would not be assigned to protect someone whose views he 'despises'.

    Bodyguards are thoroughly checked for their political and general opinions, by Security authorities that employ them.

    1. But what if he is the best one in the country and they have no other choice? Or if his company has sent him to do it. As a book translator I often have to translate books that I'd never read myself, even some that are contrary to my ethical believes, but I cannot refuse because we all need money to survive and pay for food.
      I'm guessing the plot in the series was written in the way that either he or she change their opinions during their cooperation.

  5. So he guards her body I'd love to see it the other way around in a movie. Don't think that's been done before. Can you imagine... a woman kicking ass?
