Film Night—Green Book—Friday, 27th September (12)
Set in America in 1962, Green Book tells the heart-warming true story of Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a working-class Italian-American bouncer who takes on a job as a chauffeur for Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a highly-educated African-American classical pianist.
The film was written by Farrelly, Brian Hayes Currie and Vallelonga’s son, Nick Vallelonga, based on interviews with his father and Shirley, as well as letters his father wrote to his mother. The film is named after The Negro Motorist Green Book, a mid-20th century guidebook for African-American travellers written by Victor Hugo Green.
In anticipation of the darker evenings we have decided to run a series of film matinees from October through to March. The first of these will be Mrs Caldicot’s Cabbage War to be held on Friday, 11th October at 2.00pm. After the death of her bullying husband, the not-so-aged and downtrodden housewife Thelma Caldicot (Pauline Collins) is shipped off to the Twilight Years Rest Home by her money grabbing son and manipulative daughter-in-law. Appalled by the conditions, Mrs Caldicot decides to take matters into her own hands……… !
