August Update

Follow up on last movie “Sunshine on Leith”

The movie was well attended  with 15 Members and 3 Guests on the night.
It was a again at times a fun film and also at the same time quite dramatic. The story was good and kept building up throughout the movie.
The real bonus and enjoyment though was the music; there was pretty much consensus about this by all the members I talked to during supper.

Our next film on the 4th of September is the 2016 UK Documentary
“School Life” directed by Neasa Ni Chianain, David Rane       

A year in the life of two passionate and inspirational teachers in the only primary-age boarding school in Ireland. Headfort School, housed in an 18th Century Hogwarts-like estate, embraces tradition and modernity, and this is John and Amanda Leyden’s life.
For John, rock music is just another subject alongside Maths, Scripture and Latin, taught in a collaborative and often hilarious fashion.
For Amanda the key to connecting with children is the book and she uses all means to engage the minds of her young charges with literature.
For nearly half a century these two have shaped thousands of minds but now they must start making preparations for their retirement? What will keep them young if they leave?

The original title for this film was “In Loco Parentis”.

Looking forward to see you all on Tuesday the 4th of September.
