It was great to see so many of you at A MAN CALLED OVE last Monday. There are four more corking films coming up this month.
The film club will be back on Monday 26 February at 7.30 pm with THE MIDWIFE (12A). A two-handed drama which stars two of French cinema’s most celebrated actresses. Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot (seen at the film club in POTICHE and MARGUERITE respectively). Frot plays Claire, a self-denying midwife in her forties; Deneuve is Beatrice, the glamourous but disreputable mistress of Claire’s late father, who caused heartbreak by vanishing three decades earlier. ‘A bittersweet delight, written to order for two consummate performers who inhabit their characters with satisfying elan’. Lisa Nesselson in Screen International. Written and directed by Martin Provost. France 2017. Runtime 117 minutes. In French with English subtitles.
Seats £5 and £2.50 (film club members only, no other concessions), available at the Fisher Box Office or online. For trailers and further information visit www.bungayfilmclub.com.
Most people think they know CASABLANCA (U) – Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and ‘As Time Goes By’ – but how many remember the witty script and exceptional performances from the wonderful supporting cast which includes such giants of Golden Age Hollywood as Sidney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, Claude Rains, Paul Heinreid and Conrad Veidt? Don’t miss the opportunity to see this classic wartime romance on the big screen on Monday 12 February at 7.30 pm.
MY COUSIN RACHEL (12A), based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier, is showing at 7.30 pm on Monday 19 February. A highly enjoyable romantic thriller set in 19th century Cornwall, directed by Roger Michell and ‘featuring a tremendous lead performance from Rachel Weisz – who is mean, minxy and manipulative. Her sheer charisma persuades you to overlook one or two plot glitches’. Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian.
Seats £5 and £3 (film club members only, no other concessions), available at the Fisher Box Office or online. For trailers and further information visit www.fishertheatre.org.
