I was so weirdly and profoundly moved by this article. Laura Barton has managed to describe precisely my own feelings about this wonderful film, and about George Emerson in particular. And yet, until I read this, I hadn’t realised that this was the case! Thank you, Laura, for showing me the workings of my own mind, for helping the 15 year old me realise why she felt so restricted, and for giving me the concept of ‘the George Emerson moment’
