Broadwindsor Community Film Club – Friday 19th April

At 7.30pm at the Comrades Hall Friday, 19th April, Broadwindsor’s Community Film Club will be showing…

The Old Oak (15)

Directed by Ken Loach and starring Dave Turner, Elba Mari and Claire Rodgerson.
Running time: 113 mins.

The Old Oak is a special place.  Not only is it the last pub standing, but it’s also the only remaining public space where people can meet in a once thriving mining community that has now fallen on hard times after 30 years of decline.  TJ Ballantyne (Dave Turner) the landlord hangs onto The Old Oak by his fingertips and his predicament is endangered even more when the pub becomes contested territory after the arrival of Syrian refugees who are placed in the village without any notice.  In an unlikely friendship, TJ meets a curious young Syrian Yara (Ebla Mari) with her camera.  Can they find a way for the two communities to understand each other? So unfolds a deeply moving drama about their fragilities and hopes.
