Action hero in drama role

It's National Autism Awareness month and there's a film we'd really like you to see.

From China/ Hong Kong and little heard of, it will be getting a release over here sometime in the near/ or slightly distant future.

Stars a VERY well known international martial arts actor in his first fully non-action dramatic role.

AND HE'S EXCELLENT IN IT.

A single father, dedicated to his work at the local aquarium, looks after his autistic son whilst people around him try to match make him with a new wife and mother for his child. Just when he does find someone special, he's unable to act on it, as his circumstances take a dramatic turn.

Doors 7pm (or come earlier to grab a seat, the bar does excellent food and drinks)

Quiz & Prizes 7.15pm

Film 7.30pm

Guaranteed to be very popular, so please update your status accordingly if you RSVP YES but subsequently can't make it. Thanks!

    Loved the movie and Joey did a great job of making everyone feel welcome. The quiz (which I totally sucked at!) was an added bonus. Will definitely come back for more. And good luck with everything Joey, especially the film festival.

    Jet Li showed real emotions and has captured the pain and love he feels for his son. This is bringing awareness for those who are parents, carers for those who have different body fun tion to the mainstream.
