Crewkerne Community Cinema’s April screening was filmed at a Dorset beauty spot. On Chesil Beach will be presented by FilmCrew at the Wadham School auditorium on Friday April 5th at 7.30 pm. Based on Ian McEwan’s novel and adapted for the screen by the author, the 2017 British drama is directed by Dominic Cooke and stars Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle as newly weds Florence and Edward.
The young couple find their idyllic romance colliding with the issues of sexual freedom and societal pressure in Britain’s ‘duffel-coated’ early 1960’s, which leads to an awkward and fateful wedding night. The film is the eighth screening of the year for FilmCrew and the last one of the season before the Members Choice in May. Doors open at 7 pm, refreshments will be available. Visitors may attend an individual film show without needing to book in advance for £6. For membership enquiries, please contact Joan Clemow on 01935 822656.
