Abigail Breslin as the 7 year old Olive is very good as a believable child not some mini adult. In fact, although all the characters are larger than life they are still recognisable as people which makes for some very moving moments throughout the film.
I stayed overnight at my friend's then went to the local Quaker meeting. They are a small meeting who are a bit short-handed in the summer, so asked for anyone who was in the area to drop in over August. I'm glad I turned up since there was only one other person, so there were just two of us 'keeping the meeting'. Perhaps not surprisingly, neither of us felt the urge to speak, yet it was an effective meeting for me. I was able to become centred quite easily, and was particularly aware of how the meeting for worship is different from a personal meditation or contemplation, even when there is only one other person present.
