On Thurs­day night, it’s time for cinema at the Sea­mus En­nis Arts Cen­tre with ‘The Di­vine Or­der’. It is a night of Swiss Cinema and food with the Cot­tage Café serv­ing up some clas­sic dishes with ac­com­pa­ny­ing wines ahead of the won­der­ful com­edy-drama, The Di­vine Or­der. 1971: Nora is a young house­wife and mother, liv­ing in a quaint lit­tle vil­lage in Switzer­land with her hus­band and their two sons. The ru­ral area is un­touched by the ma­jor so­cial up­heavals the revo­lu­tion­ary move­ment of 1968 has brought about else­where. Nora’s life is not af­fected ei­ther; she is a quiet per­son who is liked by every­body – un­til she starts to pub­licly fight for women’s suf­frage, which the men are due to vote on in a bal­lot. De­spite ob­sta­cles and back­lash Nora be­comes a hero as she over­throws the sta­tus quo.
