Mandy ★★★★

This short film sees Diane Morgan spin-off her character from the cruelly short-lived Sky One sitcom Rovers and depicts her determination in getting the sofa of her dreams, all to the soundtrack of Warm Leatherette.

Just fifteen minutes long but packed with more laughs than most half hour sitcoms or feature length films (such as the arid Rough Night, which I went on to watch) and a couple of great cameos from T'Pau's Carol Decker and Impossible host Rick Edwards.

The Princess Diana stuff is especially hilarious. I loved her sat alone on the bench behind the Taj Mahal Takeaway! And staging car accidents for compensation!

Number 72 in my 52 films by Women in 2019 challenge
