This Saturday’s film society screening (8th September at 7.00pm) is The Death of Stalin – A Comedy of Terrors (MA15+, 93 minutes) starring Michael Palin (Monty Python), Steve Buscemi (Fargo), Andrea Riseborough (Birdman) and Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter). Stalin suffers a stroke and dies, then the fun begins as members of his ‘inner circle’ – Kruschev, Molotov, Beria, Malenkov etc. – scramble for power, knives and backs to stab. A very black little black comedy, based on a ‘true story’. Don’t forget, hot food and snacks from 6.00pm. Membership available on the night.
The Eaglehawk Neck Film Society screening this month, on Saturday 9 June at 7.00pm, will be The Post (M 116 minutes). Directed by Steven Spielberg (Bridge of Spies, The BFG), it tells the true story of the Washington Post’s decision in the 1970s to publish what became known as the Pentagon Papers, the cover-up by the administrations of four US Presidents of their country’s real involvement in the Vietnam war. Starring Meryl Streep as Post owner/publisher Kay Graham and Tom Hanks as editor Ben Bradlee. Nominated for Best Picture and Best Actress Oscars.
On Saturday 14 July at 7.00pm the film society will be screening the Oscar nominated film Call Me By Your Name (M 132 minutes). Set in the beautiful countryside of northern Italy in the summer of 1983, and based on the acclaimed novel by Andre Aciman, this is the coming-of-age story of 17-year-old Elio and his relationship with his anthropologist father’s new research assistant. Nominated for four Oscars, including best picture and actor.
Hot food and snacks are served at 6.00pm prior to the Saturday evening screenings.

Filmed in the Walls of Jerusalem National Park in winter. This was writer/director Roger Scholes’ first feature film.
