Swainby Film Club

​ ​​​​ Great News.
Following on from our request for club members suggestions for films to screen, we are pleased to announce the first two screenings for the new film club season starting in October 2019.

The first is of the much acclaimed film 'War Horse'.  If you haven't already seen it make sure to bring along a box of hankies as it is a real tear jerker.

Our second screening will be 'Ladies in Lavender'.  This is definitely one for the ladies, starring Dame Judi Dench as one of two sisters who find a young man unconscious on a Cornish beach. 

We are still looking for suggestions for the December screening, so get your thinking caps on, maybe appropriate for something seasonal.

Aging spinster sisters Ursula (Judi Dench) and Janet (Maggie Smith) discover a young man (Daniel Brühl) near death on the beach by their home in a small Cornish fishing village. Taking him in, they discover that he is Andrea, a violinist from Krakow, Poland, who had been swept off an ocean liner on which he was sailing to a fresh start in America. Although Ursula feels an unfamiliar spark of infatuation for the handsome young musician, propriety suggests the attraction must remain unspoken.
