The BBC then dramatized the memoir, resulting in the movie Toast, which features the appealing Freddie Highmore as young Nigel and Helena Bonham Carter as the stepmother, as well as a period-perfect Dusty Springfield soundtrack. The film has been showing at the Boedecker Theater at the Dairy Center for the Arts, 2590 Walnut Street in Boulder, this week in conjunction with the LGBT-friendly Bent Lens Cinema series.
Tonight's 7 p.m. screening is the last one; future films from Bent Lens include the modern Israeli musical Mary Lou on November 23, 25 and 27. Admission is $10; get information and tickets at http://thedairy.org.
