AWC Movie Group

The film is "Colette"

When:             Sunday, November 4 at the 16:40 showing
Where:            Grand Cinema, Mikkel Bryggers Gade 8, 1460 København

Join us to see Colette (https://www.kino.dk/film/c/co/colette) at the Grand, in central Copenhagen. The show starts at 16:40, so we’ll meet in the lobby/café at 16:10. Contact Mary Stewart Burgher (emessbe@yahoo.com) as soon as possible if you would like her to reserve a ticket for you. As before, members of the group who have some time to spend after the movie, will discuss it over a coffee/glass of wine.

Here’s the plot summary from Rotten Tomatoes: “After marrying a successful Parisian writer known commonly as "Willy" (Dominic West), Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendor of Paris. Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. She pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After its success, Colette and Willy become the talk of Paris and their adventures inspire additional Claudine novels. Colette's fight over creative ownership and gender roles drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression.”

The movie group may well meet again in November, before the holiday rush begins. Contact Mary Stewart for details.

That Theatre Company  -  “The Woman in Black”

Continuing in the gothic genre, this event will be a performance of That Theatre Company’s latest production “The Woman in Black”. The play is an immaculate example of Gothic horror that builds to its climax with the slow purposeful precision of an Edwardian clock. It has all the ingredients: Isolated marshland, a spectre seeking vengeance for the death of her young child and things that go bump in the night….

The Woman in Black is a quietly shudder-some ghost story capable of chilling the flesh of the most hardened horror fanatic. Arthur Kipps, a middle-aged solicitor, hires a theatre and the services of a professional actor to help him re-enact and hopefully exorcise a ghostly event that befell him many years earlier with horrifyingly tragic results.

With Ian Burns, Christina Hildebrandt, Benjamin Stender.

The show will run until 24 November. Mon-Fri: 20:00 / Sat: 17:00
Venue: Krudttønden, Serridslevvej 2, 2100 Kbh Ø.
