CAFÉ SOCIETY
PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA
at Alderman Peel High School, Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB

Directed by Woody Allen and starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.
Woody Allen's latest romantic comedy/drama is a gentle and thoughtful examination of love. Jesse Eisenberg (Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network) plays Bobby who quits working for his father in New York for what he hopes will be the glitz and glamour of 1930's Hollywood. He falls for Vonnie, (Kristin Stewart of Twilight fame) his uncle's secretary but is soon confronted with the fact she has a mysterious lover. The resulting confusion is worthy of Allen's mentor Chekhov. Set in the 1930's with much excellent period detail, this film is being hailed as Allen's most enjoyable for years.

THIS SEASON'S CLASSIC FILM
Directed by Bob Fosse and starring Liza Minelli Michael York Joel Grey and Helmut Griem
It is 1931, the city is Berlin and the Weimar Republic is in its dying days as the Nazi Party is rising to power. Loosely based on Christopher Isherwood's 1939 short stories GOODBYE TO BERLIN and the ensuing play "I Am A Camera", the character of Sally Bowles is played by Liza Minelli, a cabaret performer at the "divinely decadent" run down Kit Kat Club, itself a grotesque mirror image of contemporary German society. We follow her life and loves, mainly with Brian (Michael York), an English academic, alongside the life of the Kit Kat Club, with its mesmerising Master of Ceremonies (Joel Grey).
Accurately portraying the period, the satirical songs and outstanding choreography Cabaret won 8 Oscars, including Best Actress, and its inclusion in Wikipedia's All Time Best Musicals.

Directed by Ken Loach and starring Dave Johns, Hayley Squires,, Nathalie Ann Jamieson and Micky McGregor
When Daniel Blake (Johns), a skilled woodworker, has a heart attack and is ordered by his doctor to rest, he encounters the bureaucracy of the benefits system; although unfit, he must be seen to look for a job, although on doctor's orders he cannot accept any work. His friend Katie and her 2 children are rehoused far from friends and family.

Winner of the 2016 Berlin Silver Bear, this is amoving and note perfect study about facing up to both the freedoms granted and the losses involved in becoming older. Isabelle Huppert, rarely off the screen, plays Nathalie, a Parisian philosophy teacher in her early sixties who appears to have it all - a job she loves, a reputation as a published author, admiring students, a sound marriage and a couple of oldish teenage children, a comfortable lifestyle. The only fly in the ointment is her difficult and demanding mother, a beauty in her youth, who requires Nathalie's constant attention. Gradually the life she has known for many years falls apart, starting with her husband telling her he is leaving her. Nathalie faces the inevitable changes in her life. "Re-thinking her whole life so late, so assertive, but also so vulnerable and tender, totally holding your heart yet also convincing you as one of those strange creatures, a thorough-going academic, in a way rarely seen". David Sexton, London Evening Standard. This film could only be French; it delves deep and is very rewarding.

This film is based on the best selling autobiography of the former busker and recovering drug addict James Bowen (Luke Treadaway, who played the lead, Christopher, in the National Theatre's production of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHTTIME). In a last ditch attempt to help James get clean, his support worker Val (Froggart) moves him into a flat, where he is joined (?persecuted) by a stray cat who he names Bob. The pair quickly bond, and gradually Bob starts to transform James's life. As he scrapes a living busking in Covent Garden and selling the Big Issue, Treadaway's sensitive and affecting performance is without vanity and so convincing that you feel he is just like any number of young men struggling on the streets of London - or Norwich. Bob (and his lookalikes) is full of character and turns out to be James's saviour. "Charming and life affirming".Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express

This film reminds us of a long-forgotten chapter of British history; a tale of imperialism and hypocrisy, class and racial prejudice in post-war Britain. South Africa had introduced apartheid and its neighbour Bechuanaland (now Botswana) had sent its Prince Seretse Khama (Oyelowo) to study law in London. There he met, fell in love with and married a white office worker called Ruth Williams (Pike). At that time, Britain was actively supporting its Commonwealth member's apartheid regime;Bechuanaland was a British protectorate. This inter-racial marriage was fiercely opposed both by their own families and by the governments of the countries involved. The chemistry between the couple on screen, while decorous and of its time is totally convincing and moving.

Foreign language with subtitles
Directed by Pedro Almodovar and starring Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suarez and Daniel Grao Loosely based on three Alice Munroe short stories seen through Spanish Director Almodovar's eyes. A chance encounter causes a woman (Emma Suarez) to reflect on the tragic circumstances surrounding the disappearance of her daughter.
"Told in flashback over 30 years of guilt and grief, this tender melodrama is the directors best film in a decade." Mark Kermode The Guardian. "Almodovar is known to be a fan of mother-daughter film melodramas; he is the one contemporary director who can make films that have the same heady feel as old Hollywood classics in the way they deal with the ruptures of family life". Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent.
