Sunday 28th June 2015 – Matinee Film Club & Afternoon Tea!

Come along and watch ‘Still Life’ – the long-awaited and multi award-winning film from Uberto Pasolini, producer of the beloved worldwide smash-hit The Full Monty.


 ‘Still Life’ is a poignant and inspirational drama about a quiet, optimistic and selfless man who finds joy in helping everyone but himself.

For over 22 years, life for the unassuming John May (an indelible performance from the extraordinary Eddie Marsan) has been his work for the local council in South London, finding the next of kin for those in his community who have passed away alone. But in this age of ‘efficiency’, John’s meticulousness and care is no longer deemed necessary, and he is abruptly made redundant. John is left with one assignment: a search for the relatives of an elderly neighbour, Billy Stoke.

As he journeys beyond London to piece together Billy’s past, John uncovers a life of mischief, misadventure, love and regret, most of all for an abandoned daughter, Kelly (the radiant Joanne Froggatt, Downton Abbey) whom John manages to locate. These two insular people are naturally drawn to each other, and as friendship blossoms, John’s outlook opens imperceptibly to life’s possibilities…

Beautifully observed and profoundly affecting, ‘Still Life’ is a gem — a resonant and universal celebration of dignity, community values and human connection, and ultimately, all that life is worth living for.

Come along and watch ‘The Book Thief’ – a highly acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival. Here’s the official trailer and the plot in a nutshell…

In 1938, young orphan Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) arrives at the home of her new foster parents, Hans (Geoffrey Rush) and Rosa (Emily Watson). When Hans, a kindly housepainter, learns that Liesel cannot read, he teaches the child the wonders of the written language. Liesel grows to love books, even rescuing one from a Nazi bonfire. Though Liesel’s new family barely scrape by, their situation becomes even more precarious when they secretly shelter a Jewish boy whose father once saved Hans’ life.
