Happy Monday folks,
This Tuesday's screening is
Mike Leigh's - Mr. Turner
Hello Film Enthusiasts! This Tuesday we have a screening of Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, a film from a magnificent director and a wonderful biopic of Britain's beloved landscape painter. The film details Turner's eccentric work habits, his life at the end of his career, and his impact on the art world and his contemporaries.

I'm hoping this one will be popular among those who like their biopic. It captures Britain and the art world in the early 19th Century baring some reason resemblance in aesthetic to Mr. Holmes which was released around the same time. However, the fact that it's being told by such a rich craftsman means it has that little bit extra personality too.

Mike Leigh seems to be one of those directors who doesn't make a bad movie. He has films which are undeniably brilliant, then he has films which are less familiar but strike different notes with different audiences. His storytelling is powerful in a personal way. Depending on what you like, you can always find something to read that others might not see. 

I find for a Leigh film, Mr. Turner is actually really well rounded. unlike his raw early work, (for the dark and daring
I can recommend 1993's Naked in a heartbeat) it seems to have been made with more commercial audience in mind. Which is refreshing as the production offers a polished big budget aesthetic in comparison to his minimalist early dramas. What makes Leigh films great is the fact that they are real stories, with real drama, told through powerful character performances. These tropes can definitely be found in Mr. Turner if not quite as raw as some of his other films.


As always doors open from 7.30, the films starts at 8.00. Please put your entry fee in the pot by the door. Help yourself to popcorn, and I hope you enjoy the evening 😊
