TAMWORTH FILM SOCIETY

TAMWORTH FILM SOCIETY

Every month (except January) a film is chosen by our members, and screened on Sunday evening and Wednesday, morning and evening.  Films are chosen on the basis of their cultural interest (eg. arthouse, foreign language), and variety. We bring films to the big screen that people would not get the chance see living in this area.

All screenings are open to the public and everyone is most welcome to attend.

    Ove is in mourning for his beloved wife, as well as furious about being booted off the neighbourhood residents association, making him a prickly nightmare that stomps around the streets grousing at those he perceives to be rule breakers. When a new family moves in next door, Ove attempts to ice out their rambunctious friendliness with his standard grumpiness, but practical matriarch Parvaneh sees something beyond Ove’s negative exterior. Delving into Ove’s past, we discover a man who has good reason for his ill-temperedness, yet secretly longs to be needed.

    The profoundly moving story of a fifty something woman who, after living comfortably for many years, must suddenly reinvent her life. Nathalie teaches philosophy at a college in Paris. Married with two grown-up children, her spare time is devoted to the books she publishes as a sideline, to former students who have become friends and, above all, to her overly possessive mother. But out of nowhere, Nathalie’s husband Heinz announces he is leaving her for another woman, the first of a series of events that will completely upend Nathalie’s world, and force her to reassess her future. Tender and contemplative, Things to Come depicts a story that, whilst common in real life, is rarely presented with such warmth and intelligence on screen. Having garnered extraordinary critical acclaim at major festivals worldwide, it certifies Hansen-Løve as one of the most distinguished voices in French cinema.
  • Runtime: 134 Minutes
    Starring: Omar Sy, James Thierrée, Clotilde Hesme
    During the late 1800s, former slave Chocolat is making a living in a provincial French circus performing the role of a tooth-baring cannibal named Kalanka — a surprisingly novel spectacle for the country people who have never seen a black man before. It is here that he impresses established performer George Footit who takes him under his wing. Together, they develop a routine which catapults them to stardom, glamour and riches in Paris’ Nouveau Cirque. However, the satisfaction of success can only last so long as Chocolat’s desire for equality begins to take hold.
