Despite the fact that one of the lead female characters is played by a bloke, this passes with flying colours. Many conversations between the girls about subjects as diverse as gravedigging, breaking into secure places, and the stresses and strains of being head girl of a school. The message of the film is very feministy, too, although delivered with all the subtlety of a housebrick to the forehead.

Also, contains the added bonus of Colin Firth and Rupert Everett snogging.

Hi all! This is my first post here, and I love the concept of this community.

The No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is definitely a mega pass, and a film I loved for all kinds of reasons (to cite a few: beautiful cinematography, wonderfully integrated music, first film to be shot entirely in Botswana). Mma Precious Ramotswe (Jill Scott) is the protagonist, and I loved her interactions with her assistant, Mma Grace Makutsi (Anika Noni Rose). Directed and co-written by Anthony Minghella, based on the novel by Alexander McCall Smith.

P.S.: I hope it's okay to rec my Minghella community here: [community profile] minghella_daily.
