Hollywood and Beyond

February 2019 Film

We start our 2019 season on Thursday, February 21, 2019 with a classic by one of the masters of the French New Wave.

“Au revoir les enfants” (meaning “Goodbye, Children”) is an autobiographical 1987 film written, produced and directed by Louis Malle. The film won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

A French boarding school run by priests seems to be a haven from World War II until a new student arrives. He becomes the roommate of the top student in his class. Rivals at first, the roommates form a bond and share a secret.

After a brief presentation, we watch the movie and at the end we have a chat with a cuppa. “HOLLYWOOD AND BEYOND FILMS” are presented at Sydenham Neighbourhood House every 3rd Thursday of the month between 12.15 pm and 3.15pm.
