    STARRING:Lou de Laâge, Agata Buzek, Agata Kulesza

    Dir. Anne Fontaine

    115mins France 2016

    SYNOPSIS:

    1945: Mathilde is a young French doctor with the Red Cross on a mission to treat WWII survivors in Poland. When a nun appears at the clinic seeking help she is brought to a convent where 30 Benedictine nuns live cut off from the world. She discovers that several are pregnant, having been assaulted by Soviet soldiers. Unable to reconcile their faith with their pregnancy, the nuns turn to Mathilde for help. Outstandingly directed by Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel), The Innocents is based on a remarkable true story about the crises of faith that emerge when a house of God is ravaged by war.

    OK to reiterate this is a Wed afternoon showing. I am off to see Paterson at the same cinema, afterwards,  at 6 pm.

    PATERSON

    SYNOPSIS:

    Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey — they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily, each a different and inspired project.

    Jarmusch’s film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

    This has had mixed reviews but I have a feeling it might appeal to me, from some of the comments that I've come across. It was the opening gala for the LIFF30 so its well thought of in cinematic circles, even if did not score heavily with the LIFF30 audience.

    I'm not expecting much of a take up for either of these movies, but if anyone fancies joining me please feel free.

    These are both *definite* meetups
