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.

We will be seeing V&A on Sunday, November 5 at Park Bio (see details in AWC Bulletin dated October 31).

Murder on the Orient Express premieres on 23 November: Contact Mary Stewart Burgher (3050 6356; emessbe@yahoo.com) if you would like to see it with the group. 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 Xmas parties.

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

THAT THEATRE COMPANY - Educating Rita by Willy Russell

Frank is bored with teaching undergraduate English students, despairing of his ambition to be a poet, he reflects morosely on his life. And then Rita walks in. A 29 year old married hairdresser who has decided to take control of her life and earn herself an education. Rita’s brash honesty and Frank’s deep intellect spark each other as they both begin to wake up to life in their own way. Willy Russell’s award-winning and hugely popular play is an uplifting tale of self-discovery, where we witness how the power of choice comes through education. It’s never too late to change your life.
