why don’t more people talk about A Man of No Importance? you have a young oblivious bus driving Rufus Sewell who gets called Boise by his Oscar Wilde obsessed Albert Finney bus conductor partner, there’s a small community production of Salome in a Catholic Church, Michael Gambon is an asshole butcher and there’s overall themes of sexuality and queer identity in 1960s Ireland,,,,it’s equally heartbreaking and heartwarming and the ending is somewhat unexpected and satisfying (the blonde wig? The declaration of unconditional friendship?) what more could you want really,,,and there’s a musical based on it
