Saturday 5th October: 7pm St Cadoc’s Church Llancarfan, A Month in the Country (1987, PG) part of the Vale Film Festival 

A month in the country

St Cadoc’s Church [http://stcadocsllancarfan.co.uk] is proud to present a very special screening of a modern classic of British cinema adapted from J L Carr’s acclaimed novel, A Month in the Country (1987).  Starring Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh in their first film, this is a captivating adaption of J. L. Carr’s novel set in Yorkshire in 1920 about former soldiers scarred by their experiences.

For this special event, which is part of the inaugural Vale Film Festival [https://www.valefilmfest.co.uk] supported by Creative Rural Communities, St Cadoc’s church will be transformed into a Pop-up Picture Palace, along with live music performed by Hiraeth String Quartet, inspired by Howard Blake’s award-winning score, and an introductory talk about our own church’s wall paintings by local expert Ian Fell.

All profit from the screening will go to help save the wall paintings from an urgent damp problem recently identified at St Cadoc’s. Spaces are very limited so book now for this rare chance to see a youthful Colin Firth perfecting his stammer years before he collected the best acting Oscar for The King’s Speech. The film is a real feast of period detail, rousing music and moving performances by three of our best actors before they hit the big time.

Tickets are priced at £7.50 each or £6.50 for Llancarfan Community Cinema members. They are available by calling or emailing:

The Big Sick (15, Romantic Comedy)
Friday 9th February, 7.15pm doors for 7.30pm start

big-sick“Boy meets girl, girl falls into coma, seriously funny romcom ensues”, The Guardian

Don’t be put off by the title! This “boundary-pushing but still effortlessly charming” romcom is based upon a true story. It tells the story of the cross-cultural romance between Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (playing himself) and graduate student Emily (Zoe Kazan) – a romance which is at odds with Kumail’s parents’ plans to find him a suitable Muslim bride.  When Emily is stricken with a mystery illness, Kumail has to negotiate the crisis with her parents (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano), who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart. This film comes from Judd Apatow- producer of Bridesmaids and Trainwreck

death of stalinThe Death of Stalin (15, Comedy)
Friday 9th March, 7.15pm doors for 7.30pm start

“The Death of Stalin is superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-list lineup. There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop.”  The Guardian

Armando Iannucci’s black comedy has garnered rave reviews.  It follows the Soviet dictator’s last days and depicts the chaos of the regime after his death.  Standout performances from Simon Russell Beale (Beria), Michael Palin (Molotov) and Andrea Riseborough (Stalin’s daughter Svetlana).

Murder on the Orient Express (12A, Crime/Drama/Mystery)
Friday 20th April, 7.15pm doors for 7.30pm start

“An enjoyable journey with a stellar cast, though the baggage we carry as modern viewers sees this ride derailed before its denouement.”  Empire

Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in this new version of Agatha Christie’s novel, in which the Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot finds himself stranded on a snowbound train in company with thirteen strangers and a corpse.  There cannot be a person in the world who does not know the outcome, so the fun will be watching a cast of top-notch performers including Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and many more go through their paces.

Hidden Figures (PG)


Friday 13th October

“Hidden Figures” is empowerment cinema at its most populist, and one only wishes that the film had existed at the time it depicts.” Variety 
Three brilliant African-American women at NASA — Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) — serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.

Their Finest Poster

Their Finest (12A)

Friday 10 November

“Anchored by a superb Gemma Arterton, Their Finest is a funny, winning, beautifully acted ode to working women and cinema.” Empire

Catrin left her home in the Welsh valleys for love. Her artist husband Ellis (Jack Huston) specialises in self-important daubs depicting industrial blight. His canvases are a tough sell. Which is why, when – for reasons that could have been more persuasively developed – Catrin is offered a job at the Ministry of Information’s film division, she jumps at the chance.

The year is 1940, London. With the nation bowed down by war, the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home. Realizing their films could use “a woman’s touch,” the ministry hires Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) as a scriptwriter in charge of writing the female dialogue. Although her artist husband looks down on her job, Catrin’s natural flair quickly gets her noticed by cynical, witty lead scriptwriter Buckley (Sam Claflin). Catrin and Buckley set out to make an epic feature film based on the Dunkirk rescue starring the gloriously vain, former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy).

Loving Vincent, (TBC)

Thursday 7 December

Another of our Cariad Film presentations brings a little something different and special in the world’s first fully hand painted feature film produced by Oscar-winning studios Breakthru Films and Trademark Films which took 7 years to produce.

Loving Vincent, a film that uses van Gogh’s canvases as both form and function, animating them into a saga tracing his last days in Arles, where he made his greatest artist breakthroughs, to his stay in Auvers-sur-Oise, where he died in 1890 after shooting himself in the torso. The story turns into a murder mystery that revisits his suicide from multiple angles, with a young man named Armand Roulin (Douglas Booth), who was the subject of several portraits by the artist, serving as both detective and narrator.

Beauty and the Beast (PG)

Friday 15th December

A Christmas treat for all of the family to end our Autumn season.
Belle (Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in its castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast’s hideous exterior, allowing her to recognize the kind heart and soul of the true prince that hides on the inside.
