The Paperboy - This gripping, scary and queasily funny picture.........

.........nurtures a dark threat which lurks like one of its gators just below the surface. Says Guardian's Peter Bradshaw in 4 Star Review. Here's a link to the rest of the review;

I've booked seat J8 and just now there are plenty of seats available so hurry up and book! Remember with a Picturehouse Membership, £35, your ticket costs only £7.50 (unless it's one of the three free tickets you get with membership).

A dark, deeply gratifying gem of modern American cinema. Is the Picturehouse last word on this film. Here's the rest...........

Following his persuasively thuggish role as KILLER JOE, Matthew McConaughey further expands his oeuvre as cynical reporter Ward Jansen, who returns to his steamy Florida hometown to argue that a convicted murderer should be spared the electric chair. The quest for the truth is not helped by either the prisoner himself or his prison groupie, a pair played so spectacularly against type by John Cusack and Nicole Kidman as to be almost unrecognisable.

Co-written with director Lee Daniels (PRECIOUS) by Pete Dexter from his own novel, THE PAPERBOY boasts cunning plot twists, frequently hilarious dialogue, and impressive performances from a cast that includes Scott Glenn as the Jansen boys’ gruff newspaperman father and singer Macy Gray as the family’s world-weary maid.

A dark, deeply gratifying gem of modern American cinema.

We'll meet in the bar as usual after the film (look out for the meet up signs if you're a new attendee) but if you're new to the group or just want to be met by a friendly face then drop me an e-mail (there's a tab on profiles) or text me on 07736 232209.

    I'd recommend the film to others, provided they had a pretty strong stomach. It helped that the ending was unexpected: the film appeared to be meandering towards an anti-climax from which it was saved by something much more interesting.
