The first film of this new season will be The Post and stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. Steven Speilberg’s handsome picture has a big, beating heart on its classically tailored sleeve. It’s a rousingly watchable film from first-time screenwriter Liz Hannah about the Washington Post, its editor Ben Bradlee, proprietor Kay Graham and what is supposedly their platonic office romance while publishing the Pentagon Papers in 1971. In the face of legal threats and boardroom fainthearts, their mission was to disclose the truth about how the US government deceived America about the unwinnality of the Vietnam war. It was the scoop that paved the way for the Watergate investigation. For more information https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6294822/
The Post starts at 19:45, tickets £3, All Welcome
The second Film will be Phantom Thread and stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Vicky Krieps. In what could be his final film role, Daniel Day-Lewis is a perfect fit as a celebrated dress designer in Paul Thomas Anderson’s beautifully realised tale of 50s haute couture.
