Please note – our program has changed – the film originally scheduled for after the AGM on 5 May is now on Friday 18 May – Buffs night. The 5 May film is “My Cousin Rachel”, details below.
5 May AGM My Cousin Rachel (2017) Genre: romantic mystery Cert 12 1hr 45 min
Cast includes Rachel Weisz, Sam Claflin
Based on a Daphne du Maurier novel and, like Rebecca, largely set in Cornwall, this is a mystery thriller. An inexperienced 25-year-old man becomes infatuated with an older woman with a secret. Weisz plays an accomplished manipulator, a character who constantly keeps us guessing as to her motives and actions.
Here’s a copy of the AGM “notice” from our secretary:
The AGM will start at 7pm. We will have food after the meeting so please bring a dish to share as usual. There will be time for a short discussion after the AGM and then the film ‘My Cousin Rachel’ will be shown. There is no charge for the night but bookings are still required and should be made by 3rd May by ringing 01550 777657 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a members’ only evening but if you wish to come and are not a member, let me know beforehand and you can join on the night (this will be for the 2017-18 season ending at the AGM).
The Agenda for the AGM is:
- Minutes of previous meeting 6th May 2017
- Chairman’s Report
- Treasurer’s Report
- Election of Officers
There are currently 6 members on the committee and the club constitution requires one third of the committee members to resign by rotation. Joanne Jessop and Julian Gray will resign from the committee as per the constitution but both are willing to stand for re-election. If you would like to be on the committee please send nominations to the secretary, in writing, 7 clear days before the AGM (by 28th April).
I will send members a copy of the minutes of last year’s AGM and also the club constitution.. We look forward to seeing you at the AGM.
18 May Loving Vincent (2017) Genre: animation, biography, crime Cert 12 1hr 34 min
Cast includes Douglas Booth, Chris Dowd, John Sessions, Helen McCrory
In this beautiful animation, each frame was hand painted by a team of artists who adopted the recognisable Van Gogh style. The film is set a year after Vincent’s death, when Armand, the son of Postman Roulin who was a friend and subject of several Van Gogh paintings, tries to deliver the artist’s last letter. In his quest, Armand’s travels through the landscapes Vincent loved to paint and meets many people who not only
knew Vincent but were also the subjects of his paintings. In doing so, Armand becomes fascinated by the story Vincent’s troubled life and begins to question the accepted version of his death.
Watching this film is like stepping into a van Gogh landscape and meeting many of the people he painted. This is a truly unique and fascinating animation achievement.
An extra Buffs’ night, on Friday evening in the small room in the Llangadog Community Centre as usual. We will start the film at 7.30 pm but will be there from 7.00pm when we will have the opportunity to have a glass of wine or a soft drink and some simple nibbles and a chat. (There will be a small charge for the drinks). Please arrive about 7.20pm at the latest for the film. Just turn up and pay on the night. Tickets cost £5.00 for a member and £6.00 for a guest. We would welcome more support for these evenings so please spread the word about them.
