Easter date with Mma Ramotswe

The Birlinn newsletter gives the transmission date for The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency tv film:
Screening of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency movie based the novel by Alexander McCall Smith has been set for Easter Monday, 24 March 2008.

The movie was filmed in Botswana last summer directed by Anthony Minghella, producer of the hugely successful film of Michael Ondaajte’s novel The English Patient.

The role of ‘traditionally built’ Mma Ramotswe is played by double Grammy winning jazz and blues singer, Jill Scott, and the screenplay has been written by Richard Curtis, best known for Four Weddings and Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones’s Diary, together with Anthony Minghella.

This should be good. I was tempted and fell: the Times is promoting the latest in the series all week at £2.99 if you buy your paper at W H Smith. I like this series, so hope the movie isn't sentimentalised.
