NEXT MOVIE:      VOLVER SATURDAY 29TH SEP  10.00am  WOODEND

 Film run time-121 mins

Spanish, with English sub-titles

We are heading into the September school hols which means that our regular movie presentation is replaced by a “Bonus” movie, in this case a delightful Spanish drama/mystery movie, starring the bewitching Penelope Cruz as “Raimunder” the much put-upon mother of a somewhat fractious “teenage”? daughter and dealing with the recent death of a beloved mother.

Right! – I know this is what is disparagingly called a “chic flick” but given its (sometime) ghostly theme it has some intriguing twists.

Directed by the great Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, this is surely a winner, and has about it a very (modern) Spanish flavour.

Critics highly recommended it:”…- A lush, loving celebration of women’s survival, Pedro Almodóvar’s “Volver”, as its title suggests, is full of returns, of emotions and bodies, energies and dilemmas — all of them women’s.  “Cynthia Fuchs Common Sense Media

“…A mature and beautifully told tale of family and the ghosts that haunt us …”Helen O’Hara

Volver means “To Return” -hope you can “return” and join us.

Morning tea -of course

Rob

The film group is open to everyone who enjoys films. We meet at 10 am (sometimes at 11 am so see the timetable) in the Woodend Nature Centre.  We have morning tea, and, if it’s a marathon movie day, we bring lunch.

Someone presents the film and then we critique the film afterwards.  Usually to much hilarity and discussion.

I look forward to seeing some great movies in 2018 and to learning from you what it is that you feel makes films great.

Stay up to date with the movies by visiting this site regularly.
