A Change Of Plan

With the Omicron virus surge continuing, we have decided to postpone January’s planned screening of Promising Young Woman at the War Memorial Hall. 

We hope this will only be a short pause in our in-person events and that we’ll be able to bring you this – and other films – in the near future.  Although that depends on how things progress on the pandemic front over the coming weeks, of course.

In the meantime, we will be holding another Virtual Film Club (VFC) session later this month and we’ve selected Wildlife as our Virtual Film Club choice for the month.

This coming-of-age family drama is set in the early 1960s. Fourteen year-old Joe Brinson has moved with his mother and father to a small town in Montana. His father works at the local golf course but when he loses his job, finds it hard to get work and eventually decides to leave home to take up firefighting in the hills. His mother Jeanette feels abandoned and increasingly treats Joe as an adult, who quickly has to learn some powerful and indelible life lessons.

Wildlife (2018: Cert. 12: 98mins) marks the directorial debut of actor/writer Paul Dano and stars Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ed Oxenbould.  The film is currently available to watch free-of-charge on BBC I-Player. 

“A beautifully observed study……it not only establishes Dano as a director to watch, but features an extraordinary performance by Mulligan.” 
Nick De Semylen, Empire Magazine

“..handsomely made, meticulously acted…”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.

If you would like to participate in our online discussion of the film on Friday 21st January at 7.30 p.m., please e-mail us at cwfilmclub@mail.com to register your interest.  We will send you a link to the Zoom session that’s been pre-booked and you’ll then have between now and Friday 21st to watch the film on I-Player
