Love to get together and talk about films? Come to The Showroom’s film discussion group! Next month’s meet-up will be on Tuesday 12 September at 7.30pm. No need to book!
The four films selected for September’s session will transport you as far as the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and nearby as the Yorkshire Moors. Hotel Salvation is a charming, warm-hearted comedy. Daya takes off on a journey to find salvation in India’s Holy city of Varanasi as he approaches the end of his life. Geoffrey Rush gives an astonishing performance as the great artist Alberto Giacometti in Stanley Tucci’s witty Final Portrait. The film is based on the bizarre story of what happened when art critic James Lord accepted the artist’s offer to draw his portrait. Kathryn Bigelow follows the Oscar-laden Zero Dark Thirty with Detroit – a powerful dramatization of ‘The Algiers’ Motel Incident’ during the 1967 Detroit riots: a brutal time that highlighted the fierce racial prejudice rife in the city’s police force. Finally, we have God’s Own Country: dubbed ‘a Yorkshire Brokeback Mountain’, this distinctive debut is a beautiful portrait of a budding romance between a young moorland sheep farmer and a Romanian farmhand (special Q+A screening on 29th August with director Francis Lee).
