Before January flies by altogether, Screen Talks would like to wish you a very happy 2013, and update you as to the exciting programme of films we have lined up to talk about in the weeks ahead.
On Monday 28th January, Dr James Lyons will introduce The Sessions (2012) – directed by Ben Lewin and starring John Hawkes and Helen Hunt. The Sessions has proven to be a critical hit since its debut at Sundance in 2012, and tells the story of a polio sufferer’s decision to lose his virginity. (8.30pm)
On Monday 11th February, Dr Fiona Handyside will introduce Sous le Sable (Under the Sand, Francis Ozon, 2000). This is part of our sister series ‘Classics of European Cinema’ and offers the chance to see this haunting and enigmatic film, which comes very highly recommended: the legendary director Ingmar Bergman considered it quite a favourite. (6.30pm)
On Monday 25th February, Dr Helen Hanson will introduce a screening of Psycho (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960). This classic thriller still retains all of its original menace and bite, with an incredible performance from Anthony Perkins. (6.30pm)
