Owslebury Moviola

We now have the programme for our showing of films for the next 4 months (September – December 2018) at Owslebury Parish Hall.

They are:

September 27     Journey’s End

October 25         Phantom Thread

November 22      Lady Bird

December 13    Happy Prince

 

Journey’s End brings to the screen R. C. Sherriff’s 90 year-old play about the 1914-18 war, which he experienced first-hand in the trenches, with thrilling power, thanks to the director’s hard-hitting urgency, and brilliant work from a talented cast.

 

Phantom Thread is set in 1950’s post-war London and a renowned dressmaker (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister (Lesley Manville) are at the centre of British fashion. A confirmed bachelor, he eventually meets his match when he comes across a young strong-willed woman (Vicky Krieps) who becomes his muse and his lover.

 

Lady Bird, with Saoirse Ronan, is directed by a Greta Gerwig who reveals herself to be a new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humour and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter.

 

Happy Prince is a passion project for writer, director, and star, Rupert Everett in which he pays effective tribute to Oscar Wilde with a poignant look at his tragic final days.

 

All films will begin at 7.30 pm with the doors opening at 7. Ticket price: £7.
