TUESDAY 5 FEBRUARY:
CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? This comedy drama based on a true story has been described as deviously funny and deeply moving. Melissa McCarthy shines as Lee Israel, the best-selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover) who made her living in the 1970's and 80's profiling popular Hollywood women. When Lee is forced to find an alternative income she is abetted by Richard E. Grant gleefully playing a dimwitted but high-spirited end-of-the-line party boy.
GREEN BOOK. Once again based on a true story this is a road movie drama with a light touch. The original Green Book was a travel guide listing safe establishments for African-Americans when travelling in America's Deep South. Talented black pianist Dr Don Shirley hires a racist tough guy to chauffeur him on his concert tour. Very well acted by both lead characters.
Everybody was invited to share lunch with friends then sit back and watch a great film.
Friday 7 December was our final day for the 2018 U3A year with lunch (bring a plate) at the Blyth Hall supper room before a short walk across the carpark to the Blyth Cinema for a special screening of Ladies in Black. It was a total success and the numbers increase every year.
The 2019 event will be held on Friday 6 December.
