The Happy Prince --Monday Night Movie. Meet from 7:30, film starts at 8:20
We're going to see The Happy Prince at the Watershed. We'll meet and chat before the movie and share reactions afterwards. Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian (4-stars) "a powerful parable of passion and redemption" Watershed summary: Rupert Everett - who writes, directs and stars in this magnificent drama - was born to play Oscar Wilde, and this, Everett's "11th-hour masterpiece" (The Times) focuses on Wilde's final years following his notorious trial and imprisonment for "gross indecency". Once one of the most famous men in England, the great man of letters is now living in a kind of exile around Europe (from Normandy to Naples to Paris) after being released following his conviction for his indiscreet affair with Lord Alfred "Bosie" Douglas. Lying on his death bed, his eventful life comes flooding back via expertly interspersed flashbacks featuring his glory days and the beginning of his downfall. Now, he must draw upon the last of his reserves to face the end of his life - and the wreckage of his public self - with immense courage... Tickets: Buy your own ticket online or from the box office [masked]). Meeting up: We'll be at the Watershed from about 7:30---a chance to meet and talk before the movie. We usually get at least one of the large tables in the area between the stairs and the bar, or just in front of the bar. If you're new to the group, look for a Meetup sign on the table and come and say hello. Check the Meetup comments after 7:30 on Monday evening for more details.
