Announcing a new Meetup for The Islington Book Group!

What: The Hedgehog (film)

When: Tuesday, November 30,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Cin? lumi?re at the Institut Francais
17 Queensberry Place London

Hi All,

Due to the popularity of The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery that we read in the summer we will be going to watch the film adaptation "The Hedgehog" at the Institut Fran?ais in South Kensington on Tuesday 30 Nov at 8.30pm.

We will meet beforehand at 7:30pm for coffee as there may not be much time after the film.

It is possible now to book tickets on the site - please do it asap to avoid disappointment.

Please see below a summary of the book / film if you didn't read it with the group - it is a definite must read / must see :-)

Le H?risson
France | 2009 | col | 100 mins | dir. Mona Achache, with Josiane Balasko, Garance le Guillermic, Togo Igawa, Anne Brochet, Ariane Ascaride | cert. tbc | UK premiere | in French with English subtitles

Ren?e is a concierge in Paris - reliable though totally uncultured. But beneath this fa?ade lies the real Ren?e: passionate about the arts, and more knowledgeable in many ways than her employers, with their outwardly successful but emotionally void lives. Meanwhile, several floors up, eleven-year-old Paloma Josse is determined to avoid the pampered and vacuous future laid out for her. But unknown to them both, a chance acquaintance with their enigmatic new neighbour, Mr Ozu, will change their lives forever.
