A PUBLIC FILM SCREENING

Lady Bird (Cert 15)    Dir Greta Gerwig           USA 2018        94 mins

Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut has established her as a bold new cinematic voice with this award-winning and critically-acclaimed film which excavates both the humour and pathos in the turbulent relationship between a mother and her teenage daughter.

Christine ‘Lady Bird’ McPherson (played by Saoirse Ronan) clashes with the very characteristics she shares with her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mother, a nurse who works tirelessly to support her family when her husband loses his job.

Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting study of the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us and the importance of the place we call our home.

THE MILL ON THE FLOSS

Thursday, 14th June 2018 - 7:30pm

Tickets: Adults £9.50 / Friends £9.00 / Students and ES40s £4.00

Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

By George Eliot, Adapted by Helen Edmundson

Directed by Paul Clarkson

They had entered the thorny wilderness, and the golden gates of their childhood had for ever closed behind them.

In this fluid and visceral re-imagining, George Eliot’s unforgettable story of first love, sibling rivalry and regret is turned into a wonderfully theatrical examination of the psyche of one of classic literature’s most charismatic heroines.

Brought up at Dorlcote Mill, Maggie Tulliver worships her brother Tom and is desperate to win the approval of her parents, but her passionate, wayward nature and her fierce intelligence bring her into constant conflict with her family. As she reaches adulthood, the clash between their expectations and her desires is painfully played out as she finds herself torn between her relationships with three very different men: her proud and stubborn brother Tom; hunchbacked Phillip Wakem, the son of her family’s worst enemy; and the charismatic yet dangerous Stephen Guest.

The Mill on the Floss is is considered George Eliot’s most autobiographical novel, beautifully examining the complex nature of relationships and love.
