Thanks David, Tom Courtney it is, and a great performance. One more
choice for BOF-S:  I've always liked _Turtle  Diary_ which stars, I
think, Ben Kingsley and Glenda Jackson. Nothing much happens in this
film and, after frequently feeling assaulted by the usual Hollywood fare,
I suppose that's why I  like it. Just a little story with little humans
doing their little human things. It kind of makes me feel, well. . . human.
