September 21st, 7.30pm
Sense of an Ending
cinema presentation is "Sense of an Ending" starring Jim
Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling on Thursday 21st September.
The film is based on the Julian Barnes’s Booker prize-winning
novel which is about recurring images of circles. There’s the
cycle of life: Tony (Jim Broadbent) receives news of a death just
as his daughter is about to give birth; then, in an amiable narration
at the film’s opening, Tony conjures up the image of life as a
series of holding patterns, concentric circles that you navigate as
you wait for the next stage to start. See the trailer here
"With his very nicely judged
performance – lugubrious, droll, self-pitying and slightly scared
– Broadbent controls the pace and tone of every scene, and the
film as a whole; Mavor and Rampling are very good as the coolly
sardonic and opaque Veronica, and Billy Howle is strong, too, in
the role of young Tony." The Guardian
