Pain and Glory (film) Fri 21st February, 7.30pm

Friday, February 21, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Pain and Glory tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s: the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s. In recovering his past, Salvador finds his salvation. This thinly-disguised autobiography directed and written by Pedro Almodóvar, is both moving and beautifully acted (especially by Antonio Banderas) and is one of  Almodóvar’s best films.

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”
