2007/08 Season


UK/USA 2006 (15)
94 minutes

Directed by Roger Michell

Hollywood Film Theatre - 4 February 2008 - 7.30pm

A study of youth and old age in which an elderly actor is attracted to his friend's grand-niece newly arrived in London. He introduces her to the Arts and she recovers her self-esteem while their relationship blossoms. Classic performances by Peter O'Toole and Leslie Phillips.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Enjoyed it. It did feel slightly sordid at times and I wanted to look away. Not sure if old age is something to be feared or looked forward to. A good buddy movie; Wonderful sensitive reflective film full of life and love; A tear or two did it for me. I believed in every character; Well acted but the unsavoury elements just did not allow one to accept the message.
