Staff Picks: Absolutely Fabulous
Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.
We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.
Absolutely Fabulous [DVD]
Would I be dating myself if I said that Ab Fab was (is!) a cult classic? Eddy and Patsy are back in this current vision of the retro (not old!) BBC series! Written once again by Jennifer Saunders, Absoloutely Fabulous, The Movie (2016) features the self-indulgent and champagne-fueled duo, PR guru and now grandmother Edina "Eddy" Monsoon (Saunders) and magazine editor Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley), as they search for their Shangri-La around each next corner.
Follow Eddy, Patsy, Saffy, Mother, and Bubble as they flounder through the fashion industry, facing looming poverty, paparazzi, professional exile, embezzlement, estrangement, and even murder charges! With at least 60 cameos and 90 female impersonators, "Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore!" Source
Geared for mature (not old!) fans, Absoloutely Fabulous, The Movie delivered hilarity just like the retro (not old!) series. A must see final chapter for Ab Fab fans!
If Absolutely Fabulous interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
