Forthcoming films

Next week we have 12 Years a Slave, a heart-searching true story that picked up three Oscars as well as many other awards this year.

There will not be a film in August, as we have found that many people take holidays or have other commitments at this time of year. Apologies to those who would have liked to come along.

For September we’ve chosen
The Railway Man. With yet another superb performance from Colin Firth, who plays Eric Lomax, a soldier who suffered at the hands of the Japanese and who is haunted by the memories. His new wife, played by Nicole Kidman, supports him on his quest to confront the horrors of the past.

For October we lighten the mood somewhat with
Labor Day, a tender love story starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. This film had mixed reviews as it is very different from earlier films by the same director. But don’t let that put you off. I’ve seen it and the acting is superb, it being very much a visual experience that doesn’t rely heavily on dialogue to convey the story.

We look forward to seeing you at the Parish Hall.
