Hollywood and Beyond

May 2022

Regrettably we had to cancel the 17th of March session and we don’t have one in April. Hopefully we will be back to our monthly screenings on May 19, and we will be showing this marvellous British – Italian co-production.

It is a 1999 semi-autobiographical film directed by Franco Zeffirelli and scripted by John Mortimer, telling the story of a young Italian boy’s upbringing by a circle of British and American women before and during the Second World War.

The wonderful cast includes Maggie Smith, Judy Dench, Joan Plowright, Cher and Lily Tomlin.

General Information about the Program

Once a month, every third Thursday we explore and discuss films from countries such as Britain, Finland, France, India, Italy and Japan. We might show independent American films or even the odd Hollywood masterpiece. After a brief presentation we sit down in a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy these wonderful movies and after the screening we enjoy a cuppa and discuss the film we just saw.
