About Me

My photo
My name is Frances Rose Agnes Napper aka SmileyRose. I am a friendly and fun loving individual. I like meeting new/old friends. Although I love being with friends, I also enjoy my own space from time to time. I have a number of hobbies. I enjoy taking photographs, going to the theatre, travel (visiting new and exciting places), reading, films and listening to music. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I particularly enjoy it when we all get together. I was a full-time mother for both of my daughters and I did not go back to work until they both reached primary school age. The UK has a lot to offer because there are so many picturesque places to visit. I particularly enjoy the British countryside. My home town was in Stamford, Lincolnshire although I am currently living in Peterborough. My Father was a serving member of the RAF. I'd consider myself well travelled from a very early age (6 months old). Divorced - for 10yrs. Currently single. I am interested in meeting nice folk only. :) Star sign - Leo the Lion. Birthday -July 29th. That's me in a nutshell. :)

A New York Winters Tale

A New York Winters Tale _ It was a very watchable supernatural film which stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Russell Crowe and Will Smith.  The film is based on a novel of the same title by Mark Helprin.

Spoiler - Look Away

The film tells the story of a man named Peter Lake. Peter is rescued by a mysterious white horse. The horse encourages Peter to steal from a mansion, the home of Beverly Penn, a young woman dying from tuberculosis.

Instead of stealing from her, Peter befriends Beverly and the couple fall in love.

Peter is raised by a demon named Pearly Soames who poses as a gangster. Peter decides to leave the gang , much to Pearly's disappointment.  He orders his gang to track Peter down. One of Pearly's men, secretly disguised as a waiter, poisons Beverly.  Peter tries to save Beverly by placing her on a miracle bed in the greenhouse, only it is too late and Beverly dies. 

Pearly's gang eventually catch up with Peter and he is thrown off a bridge and  left to die.

Peter survives the fall. When he come around, he wanders the city with amnesia for a whole century, drawing chalk art of a red headed girl on the pavements.

100 years later he bumps into Abby, a young girl with beautiful red hair, just like the chalk art.  Peter learns from Abby's mother, that she is dying of cancer. He convinces Abby's Mother that he could be Abby's miracle. He mentioned the bed in the greenhouse and that he wanted to take Abby there to see if she could be cured. They set out on their journey and they manage to make it to the Greenhouse after a run-in with Pearly.

Abby becomes weaker and her life is slipping away but they manage to place Abby on top of the bed in the Greenhouse just in time.  The miracle starts to work and Abby is saved.

The film ends when Peter flies into the sky on the white horse.

Aww a romantic films, you can't beat them!
