By Populaire Demand, French Typewriter Movie Finally Reaches Australia

Typecast, appropriately, on my French-made
Beaucourt (Japy) Message portable typewriter.
I hadn't noted Populaire being mentioned on any Australian blog, so thought I'd better alert Aussie Typospherians that it was right now touring the country. Maybe everyone else knew but me!

I think it's the first time I've ever managed to predict all top five winners. Like picking the Melbourne Cup!

Thanks for the tip-off. I'll definitely be seeing "Populaire". I Was amazed at how alike Mia Wasikowska and Robyn Davidson are!

"Populaire" is indeed a delightful movie. Although a current film, somehow the director has given it the character of one made in the 1950's. It is available to view "on demand" via Netflix.

They sure did find a dead ringer for Robyn Davidson.

Yes, I had a smile on my face throughout "Populaire." It was lots of fun.

I'd like to read 12 Years A Slave sometime. The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is one of my favorite books. It never fell into obscurity, but Northrup's story did until this movie came out.
