London Film Festival Kicks Off
- Mike Leigh's latest is first up in movie parade

IT'S day one of the 48th London Film Festival. One of the festival's big films, Mike Leigh's Vera Drake, kicks off the cinematic celebration this evening in a full-on premiere at the Odeon on Leicester Square.

Vera Drake is the beautifully observed story of an abortionist to the rich
in 1950s London and has already received rave reviews.

Also today, the festival branches out for the first time in its history to Trafalgar Square where free short films will be on view on a giant, inflatable screen. The shorts run from 6pm until 9pm this evening and then for two days after at the same times.
