Movies! and Music! in the Month of October 2016

5 11 2016

Before I go talking about Yangon, Myanmar, here is what was happening in my world of music and film last month.

And here is one movie I did not get to see due to a work commitment despite having won tickets to a special screening at the Tokyo International Film Festival.  What’s more Hugh Grant (my ultimate favorite actor) and Meryl Streep were going to appear in person.

I did manage to get to the pre-viewing greeting session but it was just Meryl that came on the stage.  Hugh had another movie to shoot (good news) and sent a pre-recorded video message.  Sigh.

I have yet to see the film which opens on December 1 in Japan.
