Underdogs always win

What are the three things I cannot live without? Books, movies and food – in that order. In that sense, The Commitments by Roddy Doyle is close to perfect. This is one of those few instances when the movie complements the book so well, you can hear the actors’ voices while you read. It’s a story about young musicians introducing soul to a dying industrial town in Ireland. Don’t tell anyone but one of my guilty pleasures is watching the movie, forwarding to the singing portions and then rereading the book.
