Loyalty and survival

November 10, 2017

Screening this weekend is the gripping story, Dunkirk (M).

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk.

Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach.

This heroic mission rescued 330000 Allied soldiers.

Loyalty and survival are the key themes of the haunting drama screening second, The Zookeeper’s Wife (M).

The time is 1939 and the place is Poland, homeland of Antonia Zabinski, and her husband Dr Jan Zabinski.

The zoo flourishes under the Zabinski’s care, and when Poland is invaded by the Nazis they have to report to the Reich’s chief zoologist, as they covertly work with The Resistance in this true story of courage.

A free screening of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (PG) by Al Gore is brought to us with the compliments of Swanpool Landcare on Thursday, November 16, at 7.30pm.

As Al Gore travels and continues his tireless fight to influence climate policy, he pursues the idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.

Screening on November 17, 18 and 19 is the fascinating true story about, Maudie (PG).

The reclusive Everett Lewis hires a fragile yet determined woman called Maudie to be his housekeeper.

Maudie develops a deep and abiding love for this difficult man despite her crippled hands and her surprising rise to fame as a folk artist.

Screening second is the film, Tommy’s Honour (M), set in the stunning landscape of Scotland.

The film is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between ‘‘old’’ Tom Morris and ‘‘young’’ Tommy Morris, who ushered in the modern game of golf.

Hot pastries, hot chocolate, real coffee and the famous Swanpool choc-top ice-creams can be enjoyed at interval and before the double feature of films in the Swanpool Candy Bar.
