Local charity Angus Arts are once again returning to The Retreat in Glenesk for one of their extremely popular ‘Food and a Film’ evenings on Saturday October 4.
The theme for this event is French. Maria MacDonell, co-creative director of Angus Arts, explained: “We’re showing ‘Le Weekend’, a British-made bittersweet comedy directed by Roger Michell and written by Hanif Kureishi, which was released last year and has received fantastic reviews. It’s about Nick and Meg Burrows, a married academic couple from Birmingham who are advancing in age and tension.
“To mark their 30th wedding anniversary they embark on a trip to Paris, the place they honeymooned three decades ago. They’re hoping to rejuvenate their marriage but needless to say not everything goes as planned.
“It has a great cast including Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan and Geoff Goldblum.”
She continued: “To complement the film The Retreat will be providing a delicious French themed meal of Bouillabaisse (French stew, with vegetarians catered for) and mini French pastries. The Retreat will be open all day, but our event starts at 7 p.m. and the bar will be open throughout the evening.
“As we need an idea of how many to cater for we really need people to pre-book for this event.
“Our film nights are made possible thanks to the support of NEAT Flicks (supported by Creative Scotland), and we’re also showing this particular film as part of Luminate, Scotland’s Festival of Creative Ageing, as the film’s subject matter seems so very appropriate! The Retreat is proving itself to be an ideal venue for our film screenings and we’re all looking forward to it enormously.”
Le Weekend (certificate 15) will be screened on Saturday, October 4, at The Retreat in Glenesk). Doors open at 6.30 p.m.
Tickets cost £10 (including food) and can be purchased from Angus Arts on 01561 298173 / 01356 670304, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or from The Retreat.
