The Welsh Girl (2007). Sometimes a book is a delight to discover.

They were with their girlfriends - it had been a mistake to sit near the back - and when, after about ten minutes, the boy to his left started to kiss his girl, Rotheram didn’t know what was making him more uncomfortable, the film or the couple. He was actually grateful when someone behind them harrumphed loudly, Show some respect. When twenty minutes later the boy on his right tried something, Rotheram distinctly heard the girl slap the fellow’s hand away. By then, though, he was caught up in the film, it’s ecstatic pageantry.
