Film Night


Village Hall movies presents Living

Living is a 2022 British drama film directed by Oliver Hermanus from a screenplay by Kazuo Ishiguro, adapted from the 1952 Japanese film Ikiru directed by Akira Kurosawa, which in turn was inspired by the 1886 Russian novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy.

The film is set in 1953 London. Having lived in a stupor since his wife’s death, Mr Williams (Bill Nighy) lives out his life through the observance of daily rituals. But then the civil servant receives some shocking news. A modest man, Williams embarks on an odyssey of discovery, encountering seaside bohemian Sutherland and opening up to co-worker Margaret.

Doors open from 7pm. No charge for the film show but donations welcome. Tea/coffee available for small charge.
