Divided

Our Extra film' Divided' was shown

in memory of Julia Park

 

 

Thursday December 6

Divided (12A)


Lee Craigie and Rickie Cotter dreamt of being the fastest and winning this incredible cycle race from Canada to the border with Mexico. This inspiring documentary by The Adventure Syndicate was the last film to be chosen by Julia Park for Titchfield Moviola & will be shown in aid of her chosen charity Clear Sky (www.clear-sky.org.uk)


 

The Tour Divide route follows the Continental Divide down the spine of the USA. It covers a distance more than three times the length of the UK, with just under 20 Everests’ worth of climbing. The rules are simple: eat and sleep when you like, but the clock never stops. Follow the exact route and remain completely self-supported. And if that’s not enough of a challenge, racers have to dodge bears, lightning storms, snow and snakes. This is the story of their adventure. It’s not a straightforward one, but then none of the best stories are.

The Adventure Syndicate has been showing this film to groups of teenage girls whom they work with in schools in Scotland.

"My hope is that this film will show them camaraderie, cooperation and collaboration and show women who are not following the traditional model and are going against the flow and having a ball - not listening to the people who say that is not possible and that it is a bit dangerous and I think that is a really powerful message for teenage girls," said Lee.


This short film has the added bonus of being introduced by Lee Craigie herself and she will be available after the showing to answer questions about her epic trip. 

 

Tickets cost £8 and will be available as usual from Daisy B's The Square Titchfield and online at

The Bookshop (PG)

Thursday Nov 1

 

Emily Mortimer (Sense of an Ending)  plays the gentle Norfolk shop owner at the heart of this fascinating adaptation (book by Penelope Fitzgerald) shot in Northern Ireland, made by a Spanish Director. Also starring Bill Nighy (Love Actually) and Patricia Clarkson (Green Mile), the performances of all three in this aged tale about late 1950’s class and corruption make this film a must see this autumn

"The Bookshop benefits from being made by an outsider. At times, it may seem off-key but there is an irony and originality here that you wouldn’t find if a British director had been calling the shots". Geoffrey Macnab (Independent)

Running time 113 mins

Ladybird(15) 

Thursday Oct 4

 

Lady Bird played by Saoirse Ronan is artistically inclined teenager, with an explosive mix of sensitivity, alienation and martyred self-importance. Her nickname is part of her insistence on self-identifying in ways other than those imposed on her by family and school. To her mother’s intense irritation, she will no longer answer to Christine, only to Lady Bird.

Marion McPherson (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse, works tirelessly to keep her family afloat after her husband loses his job. She also maintains a turbulent bond with a teenage daughter who is just like her: loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated

Ronan and Metcalf are heartbreaking as a mother and daughter who can’t quite meet in the middle, but Lady Bird enthrals because its smaller roles are also beautifully played. It’s a clever, affecting film that’s a total pleasure to watch” Nick Levine for NME

Edie (12A) 

Thursday July 5

 


 

To try and overcome a lifetime of bitterness and resentment, an elderly woman embarks on a trip to fulfill her longtime dream of climbing a mountain in the Scottish Highlands. Spectacular scenery and starring Sheila Hancock, joined by Kevin Guthrie and Paul Brannigan, both who appeared in another great film ‘Sunshine on Leith’

 

The dynamic between Hancock and Guthrie is wonderful to behold, their bickering producing plenty of humorous moments as Edie and Jonny suss each other out and build trust in one another. The film is set in the Scottish highlands, with the scenery playing an important role in the film. Jamie Neish (Cinevue)
