AWC movie group: exciting stories with Judi Dench in November 

In October, we hope you’ll be attending our Jane Austen tea, talk and quiz, but two more interesting films are coming our way in November: Victoria and Abdul (about Queen Victoria and her relationship with an Indian man - http://www.kino.dk/film/v/vi/victoria-and-abdul-0) and a new version of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express (http://www.kino.dk/film/m/mu/murder-orient-express).

Both have Judi Dench, but V&A is packed with British stars such as Michael Gambon and the late Tim Piggott-Smith, and Murder is packed with stars from all over the world, including British Kenneth Branagh as the famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot.

V&A opens on 2 November and Murder on 23 November, so contact Mary Stewart Burgher (emessbe@yahoo.com) as soon as possible if you would like to see either one of them. She will try to pick times and shows that best suit the most people. With Murder in particular, we don’t want to slide into the holiday season, when people are tied up with so many parties.

You can see trailers and other info about both movies on the Kino.dk website; just click the links above. Join us!
