Film club screens Love is All You Need

We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area where we really can fully experience all of the seasons.

Fall is upon us with all of its beauty.

We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area where we really can fully experience all of the seasons.

But I am not to talk about this, I am to tell you about the Williams Lake Film Club’s next film tonight.

Love Is All You Need (121 min.) is the title of film Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room.

Sounds quite sappy, but the film delivers a lot more than the occasional sappiness. After all, it is directed by Golden Globe and Oscar winning filmmaker Susanne Bier, the main actors are Bierce Brosnan and Trine Dyrholm, and it is a Danish, Swedish, German, Italian co-production.

If you are familiar with Danish films you know that they always have an edge to them.

Sometimes too much so, Love Is All You Need is one of the softer ones.

It tells the story of an Englishman living in Denmark, a well-off widower, lonely and middle-aged, and a Danish hairdresser hoping to finally have beaten breast cancer. Her husband has just left her for a younger woman and her daughter is getting married in Italy.

At the airport, on her way to Italy, she literally bumps into the man, Pierce Brosnan, who is also on his way to Italy to attend the wedding of his estranged son. And that is all I am going to tell you of the plot.

The film is a look into dysfunctional families and the many secrets we all hold, trying to avoid confrontation because it is much easier to pretend everything is okay.

It is a romantic and yet sad journey that takes you through the pain and determination of a character fighting to stay alive in every sense of the way.

Triny Dyrholm is a revelation as the main character, such a free spirit and determined optimist.

She is the perfect counterpoint to the brooding self-absorbed Pierce Brosnan.

All of the roles are cast very well and really pull you into the story.

And then there is the scenery.

We see some beautiful shots of Copenhagen, but it is Italy which takes your breath away.

The film was shot in Sorrento, Palermo and the Bay of Naples and I am sure you will want to pack your suitcases immediately.

The film calls itself a romantic comedy but it really is more a romantic drama/comedy.

You will laugh, you might wipe away a tear or two, and in all of this you realize once again that all families have real problems, not just your own.

After the film we will serve refreshments and hope you will socialize for a while, meet your friends, make new ones, and even discuss the film. Back-doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Admission is $9 regular, $8 for members (memberships will be available at the door), and $6 for seniors and students, HS and TRU.
