Watch A Song for Jenny - Alternative Versions.
A song for Jenny is based on Julie Nicholson's book about the death of
her daughter in the Edgware Road bombing in July 7 2005. This drama
commemorates the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 attacks in London.
The drama is overwrought, distressing as we see the Nicholson family at
first waiting for news of the fate of their daughter, hopes that she
may be alive slowly vanishing as the days go on. Then there is the
harrowing aftermath once her body is identified and making the
preparations for the funeral while feeling anger for those responsible
for the bombings.
Emily Watson gives a stoic performance and brings nuances to her
character which shows her skills as an actress because I think the
script was flawed which affected the drama. It lacked a time and place
of the setting to give it some context.
I remember driving to walk on the 7 July, 24 hours earlier London had
been awarded the Olympics by what seemed like a narrow margin. I was
listening to the radio where sport stars were being interviewed of
Britain holding the Olympics which was cut short as reports came in of
power outages in the underground network and it slowly dawned that this
was a terrorist incident. Jubilation turned into horror.
Then there were the wars Britain were fighting in the Middle East, in
Iraq and Afghanistan. The Iraq war was divisive from the beginning and
its repercussions are still being felt now something the film kind of
ignored, given that this was a motive for the bombers however
misguided. Terrorist attacks in the UK is not new in my lifetime. I
grew up in an era of IRA bombings in the mainland. Dramas relating to
Irish terrorism on British television went from how evil these people
are to more neutral tones to even injustices committed to the
republican communities such as wrongly convicted bombers. These things
might not be in the book but the context was lacking which hurt the
Jenny's father is absent from key parts of the events. I later found
out that this was the same in the book, I just felt it was all part to
keep Emily Watson centre stage. The drama should had dealt with this
aspect better as well.
So a flawed drama which I felt was lacking in a stronger story which
pains me given the tragic events of this true poignant story.
Julie Nicholson has since left the priesthood as she could not forgive
the bombers and felt that this was incompatible with her vocation as a
priest. She has also divorced her husband.
