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 2017, 2018 and 2019
are also given at the foot of this page.

A woman shelters four little girls from undergoing female genital mutilation. This impassioned and uplifting film stands as a metaphor for the traditional subjugation of women in a society. It is also a warm-hearted and wryly observed take on village life.

Bracknell Film Society presents

Director: William Wellman, US, 1937, 111 minutes
Cast: Janet Gaynor, Fredric March, Adolphe Menjou
The bitter-sweet tale of an alcoholic leading man on the skids and his young wife whose career is just taking off. Possibly overshadowed in terms of fame by three remakes, the quality of this version shines through, thanks to the high-powered acting and a sparkling screenplay by Dorothy Parker.
