Film Club

FILM CLUB LOGOSheet Film Club was set up in 2014. The screenings at Sheet Village Hall, with its state of the art sound and projection system, have become popular social events for local people. The club shows great films, old and new, with its own bar for drinks and interval food delivered to order from the Queen’s Head pub. Members and patrons enjoy special rates and non members pay at the door.

Now in its fifth year, the film club will again be screening films once a month from September to June throughout the 2018-2019 season. Our film screenings will be at 7.30pm in Sheet Village Hall on the third Thursday of the month (apart from December which will be the second Thursday).

As usual, the programme will include award winning films from around the world, along with some old favourites and more recent releases.

Our film evenings are very friendly, sociable events where you can meet up with friends and make new ones too ….. a good way to meet your neighbours.  You can enjoy a drink from our bar and  food for the interval can be ordered on the door ( provided by the Queens Head pub).

We have a steady annual membership of around 40 people and we are very grateful for their continued support. If you would like to join the club you can find details of membership options and synopsis of films on www.webcollect.org.uk/sheetfilms  and a link to the Facebook page.  You can also pay on the door at each film.

DECEMBER 2017SUNSHINE ON LEITH

Sunshine on Leith  is a jubilant, heartfelt musical about the power of home, the hearth, family and love. The film follows the stories of Davy and Ally, who have to re-learn how to live life in Edinburgh after coming home from serving in Afghanistan. Both struggle to learn to live a life outside the army and to deal with the everyday struggles of family, jobs and relationships. It is the tale of one tight-knit family, and the three couples bound to it, as they experience the joys and heartache that punctuate all relationships. And they do it all while singing to the euphoric music of The Proclaimers.

The film received overwhelmingly positive reviews. Writing a four star review in The Observer, Mark Kermode said “I shed a tear within the first 10 minutes, and spent the rest of the movie beaming like a gibbering, love-struck fool”


NOVEMBER 2017INTO THE WILD

Into the Wild is a 2007 American biographical drama survival film written, co-produced, and directed by Sean Penn. It is an adaptation of Jon Krakauer’s 1996 non-fiction book of the same name, based on the travels of Christopher McCandless across North America and his life spent in the Alaskan wilderness in the early 1990s. The film stars Emile Hirsch as McCandless, and Marcia Gay Harden and William Hurt as his parents, and features Jena Malone, Catherine Keener, Vince Vaughn, Kristen Stewart, and Hal Holbrook.

Christopher McCandless,  son of wealthy parents, graduates from Emory University as a top student and athlete. However, instead of embarking on a prestigious and profitable career, he chooses to give his savings to charity, rid himself of his possessions, and set out on a journey to the Alaskan wilderness.

The film premiered during the 2007 Rome Film Fest and was later nominated for two Golden Globes and won the award for Best Original Song: “Guaranteed” by Eddie Vedder. It was also nominated for two Academy Awards, namely Best Editing and Hal Holbrook for Best Supporting Actor. www.webcollect.org.uk/sheetfilms

JUNE 2016:

Sideways‘SIDEWAYS’.  A wine tasting road trip to salute Jack’s final days as a bachelor careens woefully sideways as he and Miles hit the gas en route to mid-life crises.  Sideways is a decidedly mature road trip comedy full of excellent performances.

MAY 2016:

A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT

APRIL 2016:

Days-of-Heaven ‘Days of Heaven‘ at 7.30pm on Thursday 21st April in the Village Hall.  Bar opens 7.00pm and as usual interval food is available to order from the Queens Head.  Staring Richard Gere, Brooke Adams and Linda Manz, Terrence Malick’s 1978 movie Days of Heaven was never a huge hit, but it was such a departure and so deliberate an attempt to have the audience stirred by beauty that it felt calming and inspiring.

MARCH 2016:

Two Days, One Night image  ‘Two Days, one Night’ at 7.30pm on Thursday 10th March in the Village Hall.  Bar opens at 7.00pm.  A thought provoking and perceptive French film.  Sandra (Marion Cotillard) has just been released from the hospital to find that she no longer has a job. According to management, the only way Sandra can hope to regain her position at the factory is to convince her co-workers to sacrifice their much-needed yearly bonuses. To read more about the film see Upcoming Events at  www.webcollect.org.uk/sheetfilms


FEBRUARY 2016:

 

NEBRASKA FILM   ‘Nebraska’ on Thursday 11th February 2016 at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Bar opens 7.00pm. Nebraska is a 2013 American black and white comedy-drama film directed by Alexander Payne and written by Bob Nelson, staring Bruce Dern.  The film was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where Bruce Dern won the Best Actor Award.  It was also nominated for six Academy Awards.

Nebraska is a father and son road trip, from Billings, Montana to Lincoln, Nebraska that gets waylaid at a small town where the father grew up and has scores to settle. Told with deadpan humor and a unique visual style, it’s ultimately the story of a son trying to get through to a father he doesn’t understand.


JANUARY 2016:

‘Conversations with my Gardner’  on Thursday 21st January at 7.30pm – Sheet Village Hall.  Bar open from 7.00 pm.

‘A successful artist, weary of Parisian life and on the verge of divorce, returns to the country to live in his childhood house. He needs someone to make a real vegetable garden again out of the wilderness it has become. The gardener happens to be a former schoolfriend. A warm, fruitful conversation starts between the two men…’


DECEMBER 2015:

FINAL FILM CLUB SCREENING FOR 2015:

Un homme

UN HOMME ET UNE FEMME AT SHEET VILLAGE HALL Thursday 10th December 2015 at 7.00 for 7.30pm

Do come and join us to see this romantic and visually exciting film.  All are welcome whether members or not (£6 on the door). The bar opens at 7pm and food can be ordered on arrival for delivery from ‘The Queens Head’ in time for the interval.

“A Man and a Woman” (Un homme et une femme) – 1966, stars Anouk Aimée and Jean-Louis Trintignant. Directed by Claude Lelouch,  this film became one of the best-loved French films of the 1960s, and won not only a Cannes Golden Palm but an Oscar for Best Foreign Film. This is a simple, but brilliantly-told, love story of a second-chance romance, with a hauntingly beautiful music score. The action moves from Deauville to Monte Carlo. Jean-Louis Duroc (Trintignant) and Anne Gauthier (Aimée) meet incidentally at the boarding school where they visit their children each weekend. He visits his son, she her daughter. She misses her train and he offers her ride back to Paris in his car…
