Filum Night – Monday 15th April
Stuck for something to do on Monday night? Never fear, Filum Night is here!
As ever, your host and landlord John will be on hand with free ‘tay n buns’ (that’s tea and cream cakes to the uninitiated!) and his wicked sense of humour.
Next week’s filum is:
My Left Foot (1989)
Christy Brown is a spastic quadriplegic born to a large, poor Irish family. His mother, Mrs Brown, recognizes the intelligence and humanity in the lad everyone else regards as a vegetable. Eventually, Christy matures into a cantankerous writer who uses his only functional limb, his left foot, to write.
Daniel Day-Lewis’ almost impossible performance as a man with cerebral palsy earned him a well-deserved Oscar in 1989 for Best Actor. Brenda Fricker won the Oscar as Best Supporting Actress as Brown’s mother.
