Our Film Club represents a fun, friendly and sociable night out, meeting regularly to watch some great movies on a big screen in our Parish Hall on Towers Avenue. All are welcome and entry is free. Tables and chairs are arranged so everyone can sit in comfort and enjoy any food and drink they might bring along.
From Martin Wheeler:
On Friday 26 October 2018 we will be showing the dark psychological thriller Don’t Look Now, directed in 1973 by Nicholas Roeg and starring Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland. It tells the story of a couple’s struggle to come to terms with the death of their daughter against the backdrop of a sinister, decaying, off-season Venice plagued by a serial killer. The film is a story of the supernatural and evil, of love and the elusive mystery of human experience, and, with its examination of loss and grief and powerful performances from Christie and Sutherland, is now recognized as a masterpiece of psychological horror. (Contains scenes of a sexual and violent nature.)
After the summer break, on Friday 21 September the Film Club will resume with a showing of Castaway, directed in 2000 by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks and Helen Hunt. Hanks won a Golden Globe award and was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his powerful performance in this epic survival story as a time-and-motion obsessed FedEx courier who is stranded on an uninhabited Pacific island after surviving a plane crash. By turns terrible and beautiful, harrowing and humorous, it is an engrossing exploration of the desperate physical and existential challenges faced by an ordinary man removed from all those things essential to modern life and thrust alone into an alien environment.
