Just about 300 people attended the first night of the 2016/17 season. The film, Theeb, was enthusiastically received. It scored 82 per cent on our appreciation index and attracted some very positive comments:
- “Brilliant start to the season! Wonderful! Gold standard!”
- “Compelling debut from the director.”
- “Exceptional insight into a different way of life.”
- “Fabulous scenery, interesting plot.”
- “A couscous Western? But great atmosphere.”
- “Wonderful from the first instant.”
- “Really good choice.”
- “Atmospheric. It’s my first time, so it was a pleasure to have a quiet audience and a large screen.”
- “Super colours, scenery. Most interesting cinematography.”
On the other side, a few members found the film a little slow and overlong and one found it harrowing, while praising the young lead actor.
We hope everyone enjoyed the wine & cheese after the film. The next one follows our pre-Christmas film on 13 December.
