New world cinema season at the Linenhall

The season of mellow fruitfulness is upon us again and it is time for the Linenhall Film Club to extend a warm welcome to cinephiles old and new. Kicking off an autumn programme full of goodies on Tuesday, September 18, is the uplifting and highly acclaimed Canadian film Monsieur Lazhar. After the suicide of a popular teacher at a Montreal school, the eponymous Monsieur Lazhar shows up at the stressed head’s office and is appointed as the class’s substitute teacher. A man of dignity and compassion, with his old-school methods Lazhar turns out to be an excellent teacher, bringing emotional stability to pupils troubled by the earlier events, but as the film unfolds his own tragic circumstances as a refugee from his native Algeria are revealed, in a film nominated for Best Foreign Film at this year’s Oscars.

image preview

Goats Lane Café, what a great name for a café and so easy to remember. It is apparently the original name for the road down by the side of Kelly’s post office and shop in Clarinbridge. This new venture has just been opened in the last couple of weeks by Deirdre and Phyllis Flanagan and is an oasis of home cooked treats. Previously I have bought cakes, brownies, and breads from Deirdre and Phyllis at various markets in Kinvara, Oranmore, Clarinbridge, and Ardrahan, and often times, with the rain pouring down around them, I thought, fair play to them. No more setting up their tent and perhaps getting drenched while trying to bring their goodies to their customers.
