Film Group

The aim of the group is to enjoy cinema-going and to discuss the films we have seen and increase our knowledge of film in general. We view and discuss films showing at cinemas/arts centres in the local area. We also discuss/recommend films that members have seen on TV or DVD.

At the end of each month all Film Group Members are sent a list of all films to be shown during the next month at Watermans Cinema in Brentford, with performance times, very brief story lines and short reviews if available. We then have a meeting on the third Friday morning of each month at 10.30am to discuss those films we have seen.

The next meeting of the Group will be on Friday 18th October, and will be at our usual venue - group members' Tim and George Carter’s home near Boston Manor station. I will remind group members before each meeting and confirm the venue details.

We have now had group viewings of three films 'Rashomon' directed by Akira Kurosawa, 'Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool', starring Annette Bening and Jamie Bell, and 'Baby Driver', written and directed by Edgar Wright. All these have been at Tim and George's house.
We don't have a further group viewing scheduled at present, so we will discuss arranging one at the next meeting.

We also have an occasional group outing to view a film, then have a discussion about the film afterwards. Details of any forthcoming outings are shown in 'Dates for Your Diary' below.

Film group outing to see “THE GOLDFINCH”

“The Goldfinch” is the film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s globally acclaimed best-selling novel, which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.

Theodore “Theo” Decker (Finn Wolfhard) was 13 years old when his mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love. Through it all, he holds on to one tangible piece of hope from that terrible day…a painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch, The Goldfinch.
Cast includes Nicole Kidman

Where: Watermans cinema, Brentford

When: 3:00pm on Thursday 31st October

Prices: £8.00

For those going, there will be a get-together afterwards to discuss people's views on the screening.
