We had dinner with my parents at their house, then came home and watched Page Eight, the prequel to Turks & Caicos, which we both really liked, since the end of the Worricker trilogy, Salting The Battlefield, is on Sunday. I loved the first one, too -- no Helena Bonham Carter, but Rachel Weisz and Judy Davis make up for that, and I love that the focus is on great dialogue and quiet political menace rather than major violence like so many recent spy movies.
