Mike Leigh, the celebrated director of critically acclaimed new film Mr Turner, has requested a copy of the Uxbridge Gazette newspaper be sent to him in Hollywood after hearing about a piece written by GetWestLondon columnist Barbara Fisher.
In her Bm@il column on November 12, Barbara discussed the lack of variety on offer at Uxbridge's Odeon cinema - in particular missing out on watching Mr Leigh's latest biopic starring Timothy Small as the 19th Century painter JMW Turner.
Reading her weekly column in the Uxbridge Gazette that week was Eve Blunt, who lives in Ruislip.
"I was tickled by her column - as I often am - but it also made me quite angry, because I agreed with everything she was saying," she said.
It just so happens that Mrs Blunt's sister is the actress Marion Bailey, who plays Mrs Booth, the landlady who Mr Turner finds love with in later life.
Marion Bailey also happens to be the partner of Mr Leigh, the subject of BBC One's Imagine programme with Alan Yentob to be shown tonight (Tuesday, November 25) at 10.35pm.
When Mrs Blunt mentioned the Bm@il column, the Vera Drake, Happy-Go-Lucky and Secrets & Lies director decided he wanted to read it for himself. A copy, I am told, is in the post.
Perhaps when he has finished touring the world promoting Mr Turner, Mr Leigh might want to pop-in and have a word with the Uxbridge cinema to give more people a chance to watch his latest offering.
