Hi all, Imagine a cinematic cross between Abigail's Party and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.... stitched together with a great comedic script... and you get something like....
The date for the next film at the Lexi is Wednesday October 25th at 1.30pm.
Kristen Scott Thomas is throwing a dinner party to celebrate her appointment as shadow Health Minister and invites her middle-class friends to mark the occasion. But husband Timothy Spall has some news of his own that spoils the scallops and ruins the tiramisu.
Bruno Ganz, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer and Cherry Jones complete the ensemble piece and they shine under Sally Potter's direction. Not usually known for guffaws (Orlando), Potter has brought joyous tears of laughter to the grim faces of the Berlin Film Festival judges. And, for Voulie, it runs for a mere 71 minutes! That's the equivalent of an ad break in today's standard running times!
I'm up for a laugh... I need one. How about you?
Hope to see you all there for the subtitled screening.
Post film discussion as well.
