Film Group ANOTHER CHANGE OF DATE


U3A films screenings have changed yet again, this time to 2 pm on the FIRST Tuesday of each month (excluding January and December) at the Blyth Cinema. These sessions are open to the public so feel free to bring friends. Future screenings will be listed as soon as Group Leader Val Tilbrook notifies us. Late changes may occur if film becomes unavailable so always check first. (Review notes usually taken from consensus of opinion on Rotten Tomatoes website.)

  • 4 JULY: A United Kingdom
    This is a delightful movie and I am so glad it has finally come to Blyth. In 1940s London two people fell in love and became part of modern history. Critics consensus: Well-acted, solidly crafted, and all-around worthy, A United Kingdom presents an absorbing look at a singular true-life love story. Director Amma Asante's third film is a tastefully made true-life story, based around a forgotten romance that caused familial, national and international strife. Watch for the photos of the real couple at the end of the film.

  • 1 AUGUST:
    This is another history lesson cloaked in a magnificently filmed foreign location.  For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten, great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people after 300 years of British rule.  This involved the partition along religious lines of colonial India into the modern states of India and Pakistan.  One wonders at the accuracy. Were they really preoccupied with the equal division of the Viceroy's cutlery while ignoring proper provision for the 14 million refugees who were displaced and the resulting widespread massacres. It may inspire you to read further about the fascinating Edwina Mountbatten.
