This weekend the Somerville Theater in Davis Square is hosting the 13th Annual Irish Film Festival.
Yesterday was a "down day" where I didn't even shower, but I knew today would be better. So I checked the listings and I saw that Sunday's offerings included "Bernadette: Notes On A Political Journey". I was struck immediately! This documentary is the story of Bernadette Devlin. I had read her book "The Price of My Soul" when I was 16 and it impacted me deeply. I didn't always agree with her views, she is a socialist, but you can't help but be in awe of her. At least I couldn't.
So today I got up and showered and not wanting to risk the "T" on a Sunday schedule, I took a cab to Davis Square.
I went up to the ticket window, very happy to be 30 minutes early for a 2 pm showing. I put my money on the counter and asked for a ticket.
"It's sold out and started 30 minutes ago."
Ah yes, I am so good aren't I? It was a 1 pm showing not a 2 pm showing.
