Film Group

Next Film Group Meeting - Thursday 20th February 2020.

The next Film Group Meeting will be on Thursday 20th February at 13:30 until 16:00 in ‘The Loft’ of the Shoeburyness and Thorpe Bay Baptist Church, when we are planning to watch the film ‘Kes’ (112 Minutes), which is a 1969 British drama film directed by Ken Loach. The film is based on the 1968 novel ‘A Kestrel for a Knave’ by Barry Hines and is ranked seventh in the British Film Institute’s top Ten (British) films! The film tells the story of a fifteen-year-old boy, who is picked on both at home and at school, who takes a kestrel from a nest on a farm and manages to train the bird. The film provides a portrait of working-class life in the mining areas of Yorkshire, where at the time the miners were reportedly the lowest paid workers in the country.

‘Kes’ is a typical ‘Hard Hitting’ Ken Loach film telling a very different story, which highlights some of the ways that life has changed in England during the past fifty years!

Hopefully you will be able to join us on Thursday 20th February to watch a very different but excellent film!
