The next monthly Film Group meeting will be held on Thursday 21st November at 13:30 until 16:00 in ‘The Loft’ of the Shoeburyness & Thorpe Bay Baptist Church, when we are planning to watch the film ‘Strictly Ballroom’.
The film was Baz Luhrmann’s feature film directorial debut and was based on an original short play of the same name. The story draws on Luhrmann’s own life experience as he had studied ballroom dancing as a child and his mother worked as a ballroom dance teacher. It was a huge success when released in Australia and in 1993 gained eight BAFTA nominations. Other major accolades included a 1994 ‘Golden Globe’ nomination for ‘Best Picture’.
As Ballroom dancing seems to becoming more and more popular, we should be in for a very enjoyable afternoon on Thursday 21st November! Hopefully you will be able to join us!
