Films in the Town Hall

October 12, 2012 at 3:02 pm Leave a comment

There is something wonderfully cosy about Kennet Valley Arts Trust bringing good films to local venues and screening them in village halls (especially in Marlborough which comes complete with bar). There is a big screen and although the chairs are not the most comfortable in the world, and the sound occaisionally punctuated by people knocking over their (empty) glasses – it’s a wonderful way to spend a chilly/wet evening with a hundred or so other keen local film goers. Funnily enough we are all of a certain age. Not a mobile phone to be heard, and only a fiver for admission!

The film was an absolute delight ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’ which is romantic and very funny. I love Ewan McGregor and he is at his bumbling best. Kristin Scott Thomas is another favourite (from The English Patient, my all time favourite film) and she is absolutely hilarious in this as Press Secretary to the Prime Minister. Emily Blunt (ex Hurtwood House) is the beautiful and intelligent love interest and there is a gorgeous Arab gentleman thrown in for good measure. It’s one of those feel good British Films like Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and the Bridget Jones’s….a visual bar of chocolate. I loved it and look forward to next months offering which I missed at the cinema ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. English winters evenings suddenly don’t seem quite so daunting!
