Screening this weekend is a film full of bubbly, frothy fun filmed in a French Chateau, C’est La Vie! (M).
This charming French comedy is about a disgruntled caterer working his last wedding event.
Max is just trying to get through the night, but has to deal with a cast of offbeat characters and a girl friend who is flirting with a young server.
C’est La Vie! will screen as a Sunday afternoon matinee on December 18 at 1.30 pm. Tickets are $10 and include a cuppa and biscuit following the show, which starts at 1.30 pm.
The second film screening in the double bill on Saturday and Sunday evenings is a quirky comedy from New Zealand, The Breaker Upperers (M).
Fifteen years ago, Mel and Jen discovered that they were being two-timed by the same man.
Bitter and cynical, they became friends and formed a small business called ‘‘The Breaker Upperers’’: breaking up couples for cash.
Now in their late ’30s and with a booming business, Mel develops a conscience when they run into an old victim.
This is a fun romp described as being ‘‘made by women for women’’ including the ‘‘uccents ‘n’ ull’’!
One outstanding and highly acclaimed film will screen on Saturday, December 22, at 7 pm and on Sunday, December 23, at 6 pm.
The Wild Pear Tree (M) comes from Turkey and is the only film screening because of its length.
There will not be an interval, so complimentary fruit and dips will be served before and after the film.
An ambitious, discontented young graduate and would-be writer returns to his village with his diploma, but no job.
Now he has to decide if he should take exams to be a teacher like his father.
He also has military service to get out of the way.
Returning home is not what he expected.
It appeared wonderful in his imagination when he lived in the city, but actually being back reminds him of all its irritations compared to the excitement of city life.
