Follow up on last movie “The Bélier Family ”
Good attendance with 19 members even though it was Melbourne Cup night.
Depicting life on a farm in provincial France this was a beautiful movie; everyone I talked to during supper mentioned how much they enjoyed it. The story was really good, it was beautifully acted and left you with a good feeling.
It was also a real insight in the life of the deaf and mute and even brought some tears in the eyes of some members.
Our next film on the 5th of December is the documentary/biography “Good Ol Freda” in which Freda Kelly looks back at her career as lifelong secretary for The Beatles.
Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big: The Beatles. History now notes that The Beatles were together for 10 years, but Freda worked for them for 11. Many people came in and out of the band’s circle as they grew to international stardom, but Freda remained a staple because of her unfaltering loyalty and dedication.
In Good Ol’ Freda, Freda tells her personal stories for the first time in 50 years. One of few films produced with the support of the living Beatles and featuring original Beatles music, the film offers an insider perspective on the beloved band that changed the world of music.
Hope to see all of you on Tuesday the 5th for this great and entertaining documentary.
