Bill Nighy stars in this delightful comedy as Alan, a man who pines for his son, Michael who walked out into the night after a heated game of Scrabble and who has not been heard from again. Yet Alan fixates on Michael's return, much to the chagrin of his other son, Peter. But when fresh evidence on the whereabouts of Michael leads to a road trip for Alan and Peter, it allows them to reflect on and work to repair their relationship.


Thursday November 14th at 6pm

The Keeper (2018, Drama, English/German with subtitles, rated M, 115 mins)
Cast: David Kross, Freya Mavor. Director: Marcus H Rosenmuller.

Bert Trautmann is a German POW held in England at the end of WWII and, much to his surprise, is recruited into a local football team in desperate need of a goalie. A move that doesn’t go down well with the locals or the team. Even more surprising is when Bert is later asked to try out as goalkeeper for Manchester City. While based on Trautmann's life, this film spans so much more than his life playing football, so will appeal to a broad audience.
