‘Belfast’ (12) – Drimpton 8th June, Broadwindsor 17th June

Both Community Film Clubs are showing ‘Belfast’ this month.  It is rated 12 and lasts 94 minutes.

Written and directed by Academy Award winner Kenneth Branagh, starring Jamie Dornan, Caitriona Balfe, Jude Hill, Dame Judi Dench, Ciaran Hinds & Colin Morgan.

Belfast is a poignant story of love, laughter and loss in one boy’s childhood amid the music and social tumult of the late 1960s. Buddy’s family lives in a largely Protestant district with a few Catholic families, but one day his community and everything he thought he understood about life is suddenly turned upside down.  Buddy’s family gets caught in the mayhem and must decide to stay or leave the only place they have ever called home.  Through it all, his passionate parents (Caitriona Balfe and Jamie Dornan) and quick-witted grandparents (Academy Award winner Judi Dench and Ciaran Hinds) keep the joy alive through music and the magic of movies in this feel good story that reminds us that no matter how far you go, you never forget where you came from.

Drimpton Film Club – Tonight, 7pm – “Sweet Bean”

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm showing of “Sweet Bean” (PG), a Japanese film with sub titles directed by Naomi Kawase.

A struggling street vendor needs to pay rent on his stall and trade is bad.  He makes little pancakes with a sweet bean paste but he knows his paste is not as good as it should be. Help to turn his business around comes from an unexpected source and that is where our tale starts.

This is a beautifully made film, no excessive dialogues, so time to hear city life, the rustling of the trees, nature and the seasons and three lonely people coming together for mutual benefit.

A wonderful book. A wonderful film.
