FIRST MAN

TUESDAY 9th JULY

When Neil Armstrong re-entered the moon-lander he said "Good luck Mr. Gorsky".  The story goes that when he was a child, playing baseball with a friend in the backyard, his friend hit the ball in front of his neighbour’s bedroom window. The neighbours were the Gorskys.  As he leaned down to pick up the ball, Armstrong heard Mr. Gorsky’s wife shouting "Sex! You want sex!  You'll get sex when the kid next door walks on the Moon".

To find out if this film about the life of Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling), the first man to walk on the Moon, records this event you will need to join us in July.  For those of you old enough to remember, this all took place during the final-leg of the space race between Russia and the USA. It tracks Armstrong’s life from his early days as a test pilot through the loss of his two-year-old daughter to a brain tumour, drama with his first wife Janet (Claire Foy), raising their two sons to understand that their father might not survive, to the film’s brilliantly staged lunar climax.

But was it all a hoax?

 

 

FISHERMAN'S FRIENDS

TUESDAY 13th AUGUST

This film has absolutely nothing to do with those extra strong lozenges. It is based on a true story about ten fisherman from Port Isaacs who achieve a top ten hit with their album of Sea Shanties.

Danny, a music executive travels to Cornwall for a stag do with a few of his music PR chums where he’s dared into offering to sign the singers up to a record deal. As he starts to fall in love with their music (and with one of the singers’ daughters) he makes it his mission to bring the Fisherman’s Friends’ music to the world.

A charming tale set in Poldark territory with scenery almost as good as our beautiful Purbeck. A great gentle comedy highlighting all the little things that matter most in life such as friends, family, love and loyalty. A film that will keep will keep you chuckling throughout.
