ABCD FILM SOCIETY
Come and watch an entertaining and varied programme of new and classic films in a friendly atmosphere, shown by an award-winning film society in its 42nd year.

First film of the season is Arrival on 5th October at 7.45pm

ARRIVAL  Oct 5th
In Arrival, French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve skilfully realises a science fiction scenario without the gung-ho sometimes seen in the genre . When 12 UFOs are reported around the world, language expert Dr Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is brought in to work with the scientific and military team to communicate with the aliens and establish a dialogue. The rich visual style of cinematographer Bradford Young ensures a pleasurable and intelligent cinematic experience. “This is blockbuster science fiction with intellect; meditations on linear versus non-linear time, the ambiguities of linguistic meaning, and the way different languages shape our perceptions of reality.”  Max Von Thun, Cine Vue  (Cert 12A)
Dir:  Denis Villeneuve  116 mins   USA   2016
