The Snows of Kilimanjaro next up for Linenhall Film Club

The next screening at Linenhall Film Club is the heartfelt French film The Snows of Kilimanjaro. Inspired by a Victor Hugo poem, director Robert Guédiguian introduces us to the world of Michel and Marie-Claire, a couple who have lived happily together for 30 years. Upstanding middle-aged factory worker and socialist shop steward Michel has just been forced into early retirement, but soon after they are attacked in their home, beaten, tied up and robbed of everything including their wedding rings. However it transpires that one of their attackers is a co-worker also made redundant, a young man who is attempting to support himself and his young dependents. An eloquent and quietly gripping film about the politics of everyday life.

The Artist next on the silver screen at Linenhall Film Club

The next screening at Linenhall Film Club is the universally acclaimed Oscar-winning film The Artist. Travel back to a golden age of cinema in this enchanting comedic tribute to silent films. It is 1927, and the handsome, debonaire, George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is Hollywood’s biggest star. Unhappily married, he unwittingly steals the heart of unknown extra Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), who dreams of stardom. When the studio converts to the ‘talkies’, Valentin takes it upon himself to keep the silent era alive, risking his career and his fortune. Needing little introduction at this stage, The Artist became the most awarded French film in history, scooping three Golden Globes, seven BAFTAs, and five Oscars for this highly entertaining romantic comedy-drama. Here is a chance to see it on the big screen as it was intended. Laugh, cry, love it.
