A bit of a short notice event, but for my second event for London Movie Meetup I'd like to invite you all to come join me in watching Lore.  Here's the synopsis taken from the Picturehouse site and trailer:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8v3rgP0Aqu8&safe=active

Synopsis:

In only her second feature, director Shortland again tackles a tough subject, this time the way Germans coped with their defeat as World War Two ended.

The story is seen through the struggle of the title character, a 15-year-old on the verge of sexual awakening who is instead obliged to act as a mother to her four younger siblings. The five of them flee the conquering Allies and seek haven beyond Hamburg, aided by Thomas, a Jewish refugee, who stirs the entire family’s anti-Semitic fervour as well as Lore’s confused emotions (echoing the theme of Shortland’s SOMERSAULT).

As their plight grows increasingly desperate and it becomes clear that their beloved Führer is dead, Lore’s moral compass begins to waver, although her resolve does not.

This powerful film is made all the more compelling by its fantastic central performances.


Film starts at 9:10pm.  As the cinema is quite small, I'd recommend strongly for you to book tickets here: http://www.picturehouses.co.uk/cinema/Ritzy_Picturehouse/film/Lore/ We can always meet up before the film starts for a drink or two, and I'll disclose the pub we meet at to those who are coming along .  Will also meet anyone wishing to meet just before the film at the cinema box office just before the film. See you at the movies, Yander :)

    Excellent film although upsetting - brilliantly made and thought-provoking.

    Hi Yander but I've been hit with an awful cold today so I won't be able to make it later. Shame as was looking forward to it. Hope to join everyone on another meet.

    Hi all, for those who have signed on at the last minute - we will be meeting at 7:45pm at the Prince Albert bar on Coldharbour Lane which is literally a stones throw away from the Ritzy. If you're unable to join us early we'll meet you no later than 9pm in front of the box office. For easy spotting - look out for my very bright red pair of earmuffs either on our Meetup table or being worn by someone! ;) see you all tonight

    Saw this one back in Australia - well worth a watch, as is her first film, Somersault. Enjoy!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
