Hi all film society members and friends – welcome to summertime
The EHN Hall Film Society will be screening two films this month:
This coming Thursday, 8th October, at 7.30pm, we will be screening The Grand Seduction (M, 108 minutes) starring Brendan Gleeson (Calvary, In Bruges), Taylor Kitsch (True Detective) and Gordon Pinset (Away from Her), set in an economically-depressed fishing village on the coast of Newfoundland that is hoping to attract a new petro-chemical company to set up and save the village from financial ruin. But to do this, they need to secure the services of a permanent doctor, and they will do anything to get and keep him. A gentle little film with wry humour. If you liked Local Hero? Based on the earlier French-Canadian film.
This Saturday, 10th October at 7.00pm, we will be screening The One-Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (M, 115 minutes), a Swedish film based on the best selling book by Jonas Jonasson. An old man living in a retirement home in Sweden, decides that he doesn’t want to attend the 100th birthday party planned for him at the home, and climbs out the window in his slippers and pyjamas and goes on an hilarious slapstick and black-humour-riddled journey out in the big wide world. Forrest Gump turns 100 in Sweden? Written and directed by Felix Herngren and starring Swedish comedian Robert Gustafsson.
Come along at 6.00pm on Saturday for hot food and snacks – maybe a Swedish theme?
