MEXICAN FILM star Gael Garcia Bernal takes the lead role in Chilean movie No, to be shown in the Town Hall Theatre this weekend.
No is centred on the 1988 plebiscite which led to Chile’s first democratically elected government in 17 years. René, (Bernal ) a successful advertising executive, is approached to work on the No campaign but is initially ambivalent. However driven by the legacy of his political-dissident father, René eventually gets on board, coming up with a campaign using the same strategies he used to sell sodas and microwaves.
The film, which won the CICAE Award at last year’s Cannes, is on this Sunday at 8.15pm.
Tickets are €8.50/6.50 from the Town Hall Theatre (091 - 569777, www.tht.ie )
