BACK TO
Quarterly Classics: What makes a film a 'classic' - stars? director? awards? decades of affection? Bracknell Film Society aims to answer this question at least partially in a new regular three monthly slot. The 'FILM LISTINGS' web page will keep you appraised of what is coming next.

A complete BFS showing list from 1960 is available through
the 'HISTORY' ICON at the top of this page.

Links to our previous shows in 2015, 2016 and 2017
are also given at the foot of this page.

certificate 15
Director: Xavier Legrand, France, 2017, 94 minutes. French with subtitles

A broken marriage leads to a bitter custody battle. An explosive story, as gripping as it is authentic, carefully and sensitively directed with restrained performances throughout. A powerful, human scale reminder of the horrors of the home.

Perhaps the most dazzling fusion of grim social realism and giddy genre thrills since 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

Quarterly Classic
SECOND SHOWING THIS MONTH

JULY

Thursday 26th - 7.30pm
certificate U
Director: Orson Welles, US, 1942, 86 minutes
Cast:Joseph Cotten, Dolores Costello, Tim Holt

The spoiled young heir to the decaying Amberson fortune comes between his widowed mother and the man she has always loved. Still a masterpiece from wryly comic opening to studio-forced ending, this remains Welles most moving film with immaculate period reconstruction and virtuoso acting shot in long, elegant takes.

AUGUST
Tuesday 14th - 7.30pm
certificate U
Director: Charles Chaplin, US, 1931, 84 minutes
Cast: Charles Chaplin, Virginia Cherrill, Florence Lee

A tramp falls in love with a blind flower girl. Arguably the biggest risk of Chaplin's career, being made after sound came in, this silent masterpiece is littered with the usual sight gags but also delicate moments. The final scene, still powerful, vindicates his decision to stay silent.

Mingled with mirth in a production of admirable artistry and proving the eloquence of silence - Mordaunt Hall, NEW YORK TIMES, 1931

Bracknell Film Society is delighted to welcome Jillian Jenkins who will play an improvised piano accompaniment to the film.
