Stubbington

Art House/Indie Film Group

Under normal circumstances the film group meets on the third and fifth Wednesdays of each month in a member's home from 2-5pm. Time is flexible as films vary so much in content and duration. Then there is time for refreshments and discussion.

However, we are now running remotely.

I will continue to send out film listings on the first and third Saturdays of the month.

Here are some films that might be of interest. Watch live or record to watch later. Some showing times are very late or early.

Sunday 22nd
Film4 11.00am The Straight Story 112m 1999 USA Road Movie
Backed partly by Disney Studios and directed by David Lynch, this Indie movie about a man travelling across country driving his lawnmower gives us a sweet, lyrical masterpiece in which Lynch frees himself from the heavy irony and noir affectations of his last few films, and on the way illuminates a mythical slice of Americana.

Monday 23rd
Film4 12.45am Dance With a Stranger 1985 106m UK Crime
This is the tragic story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in the UK as a result of her obsessive, ultimately destructive love for a wealthy young man. The recreation of London in the 1950's, both sets and costumes, is brilliantly realised.
Film4 10.50pm Thunder Road 2018 92m USA Comedy/Indie
Right from the opening scene, where the lead delivers a eulogy for his dead mother, we connect with a character who is filled with longing, love, anger and dignity while on a journey to raise his young daughter. The writer-actor-director, Jim Cummings, is described as the future of humanistic film making in America.

Tuesday 24th
Film4 12.40am Sweet Country 2017 113m Australia Action
NB: rave reviews A masterpiece of incredible cinematography and brilliant use of stark scenery as the setting. A movie on prejudice and injustice told in one man’s life who kills in self-defence and runs. We see shocking cruelty and haunting beauty in a tragic tale of outback tensions.

Friday 27th
BBC2 11.05pm Only You 2018 119m UK Romance/Indie A remarkably mature love story in which romance doesn’t lead to an ideal life but to a partnership of two people who have grown together through suffering. In its unflinching, sustained examination of childlessness, this movie stumbles on some universal truths about human relationships.

As always, enjoy. Comments are very welcome.

Stay safe and well, Manon.

We do currently have a few vacancies in the group. Contact the Group Leader for more details.
