    Hi Catherine,

    I can imagine the actors in this having a fab time going through the scenes.

    From a production point of view, on a budget probably, the supermarket jars as a harder bit to arrange, although I like the feel it gives the film.

    Hi Bruce
    Thanks for the feedback. I would see this as being set somewhere pretty rural/suburban and imagine that other people were all indoors, with their loved ones, staff from the supermarket would have fucked off home rather than stay to the end of their shift! And/or do you mean it's hard to imagine how to film it?? Hmmmm... yes, it is very much 'over to the director' regarding how to highlight those end key signposts of how they've been spending their time.... I can kind of see it in my mind's eye but needs a director's take on it for sure. And indeed, might just be too subtle to get across. I'll have a think about whether there's a way to do the same more tangibly.... Great to get your insights on it - much appreciated. cx

    Hey Catherine, read the script, lovely to read, I like this angle on the end of everything. My only departure is that I battle to see deserted supermarket, and empty streets, any how thats a deeper opinion on human nature.

    Well done it is an endearing sentimental story easy to identify with, with a dash of melancoly.

    And lastly, regarding the closing scene, I like your idea, and it is easy to write, and easy to read but that kinda stuff is difficult to communicate on film. Shots of books, papers, photos does not really communicating.

    Something to think about, and again ... i could be wrong.
