JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN
TUESDAY 8th OCTOBER
Those of you who were inspired to get a Barclaycard back in the 90s from the ads where Rowan Atkinson played a hapless MI5 agent will be pleased to know he has been (yet again) resurrected in Johnny English Strikes Again.
The new adventure begins when a cyber-attack reveals the identity of all active undercover agents in Britain, leaving Johnny English as the Secret Service's last hope. Called out of retirement, English dives head first into action with the mission to find the mastermind hacker. As a man with few skills, Johnny English must overcome the challenges of modern technology to make this mission a success.
Atkinson is a gifted physical comedian, and bears comparison to Jacques Tati. In this latest outing he doesn’t disappoint.
PURBECK FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTATION
A PRIVATE WAR
TUESDAY 29th OCTOBER
A Private War is a heartfelt biopic of the late Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike), one of the most celebrated frontline reporters of our time. As a war correspondent for The Sunday Times she told the stories we'd rather not know. In her words, I saw it, so you don't have to.
It covers the last eleven years of her life beginning with her losing sight in her left eye while reporting on the Sri Lankan Civil War to her extra-judicial killing in Homs by the Assad regime. This film has a tough, forthright, pro-journalist attitude portraying Colvin’s belief in real facts and real news.
Please note that tickets for this Purbeck Film Festival presentation will be £6.00. Doors and bar open as usual at 7.00pm, with film commencing at 7.30pm.
TUESDAY 12th NOVEMBER
This film, created by the unlikely partnership of Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis, is a comic fantasy themed around the music of the Beatles. The story centres on Jack Malik, a struggling singer-songwriter in an English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie.
After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed. Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them makes Jack an overnight sensation. All is well until America beckons, then suddenly the hard side of stardom rears its head. Yet fear not, the film ends in style with a beautifully judged and surprisingly moving finale.
