Hampstead film at Brighouse cinema, Thursday 16 November, 7.30pm

Brighouse Cinema are showing the lovely film Hampstead this week, full details below:


Thursday November 16th, 7.30pm


Our next presentation is on Thursday 16th November.
Hampstead is a 2017 British comedy-drama film. This placid, silver-years heartwarmer, set in a picturesque and pricey part of the capital – in this case, Hampstead – is pretty obviously inspired by Curtis’s 1999 hit Notting Hill, though actually taken from the true-life case of Harry Hallowes, a reclusive man who in 2007 claimed squatter’s rights to a patch of ground in Hampstead Heath in London where he’d set up camp and legally saw off some property developers who’d tried to oust him.
This movie casts Brendan Gleeson as Harry – renamed Donald – and invents a quirky American widow called Emily, played by Diane Keaton, who falls in love with him. This movie has some decent moments, and its scepticism about property moguls is something that will chime with many right now. The cast all do an honest job: Phil Davis has a punchy cameo and Jason Watkins plays a creepy accountant with romantic designs on Emily. It is genuinely funny when he reveals his toe-curling hobby: he is the leader of a ukulele orchestra who perform at Emily’s birthday party.

To celebrate Grand Central's 10th anniversary of running trains from Brighouse to London we are showing "The Railway Children" on Thursday 23rd November.

John, Steven and the gang
