- FILM NIGHT FOR FEBRUARY FEATURES ‘UNLIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY
CHIDEOCK HALL FILM NIGHT
Tuesday 20th February. 7.00pm for 7.30pm
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
Mild-mannered pensioner Harold Fry (Jim Broadbent) takes a stroll to the postbox one bright Devon morning. But for some reason he can’t bring himself to post the letter. It’s just a few stunted lines on headed notepaper, a reply to his old friend and former work colleague Queenie (Linda Bassett), who, he learned recently, has terminal cancer. Then a chance encounter in a petrol station gives Harold a new purpose: he decides to walk from Devon to Berwick-upon-Tweed, where Queenie is receiving palliative care in a hospice. It’s an act of faith: he believes that by plodding through the B-roads of rural Britain he can save her life. His wife, Maureen (Penelope Wilton), hurt and confused by her husband’s abandonment, vacuums despondently. This politely unassuming little film builds into a wrenching examination of grief, guilt and eventual closure.
£5.00 Entry – cash or card payments accepted which includes free Tea/Coffee & Popcorn
Wine by glass or bottle, beer, cider & choc ices on sale during interval.Continue reading →
