Flicks in the Sticks

Clare and I were delighted to see such a good turnout for our first film, and what a wonderful film it was!  Here is a reminder of our next two showings for your diaries  :

 

Tuesday 14th November – Lion

Five-year-old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of kilometres across India, away from home and family. Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home. Directed by Garth Davis, written by Luke Davies. Starring Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman, David Wenham, Sunny Pawar and Abhishek Bharate

Tuesday 12th December – Their Finest

The year is 1940, London. With the nation bowed down by war, the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home. Realizing their films could use “a woman’s touch,” the ministry hires Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) as a scriptwriter in charge of writing the female dialogue. Although her artist husband looks down on her job, Catrin’s natural flair quickly gets her noticed by cynical, witty lead scriptwriter Buckley (Sam Claflin). Catrin and Buckley set out to make an epic feature film based on the Dunkirk rescue starring the gloriously vain, former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy). As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and their colourful cast and crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Directed by Lone Scherfig, written by Gaby Chiappe. Starring Gemma Arterton, Bill Nighy, Sam Claflin, Jack Huston, Jake Lacy and Richard E Grant
We’re sorry not to have included some peoples’ suggestions for films – a great deal depends on what films are available to us and when, and there are so many to choose from!
All films commence at 7.30pm, no booking necessary. The bar will be open.
