Good things come in pairs

By Benalla Ensign

Screening this weekend is the outstanding French film Just To Be Sure (M).

An unshakeable mine-clearing expert, suddenly loses his footing when he learns that the man who raised him is not his father.

Despite all the tenderness he feels for him, Erwan discreetly sets out to learn more about and find his real father.

Good things come in pairs.

His father is an endearing man, and so is Anna, whom he crosses paths with, and he undertakes to seduce Anna (who turns out to be his half-sister), with interesting consequences.

The second film screening is The Teacher (M).

In a 1983 Bratislava classroom a new teacher, María, asks each student to stand up and introduce themselves and describe their parents’ occupations.

It becomes clear that the students’ grades are related to what services the teacher can receive from the students’ guardians.

After an attempted student suicide, a meeting of parents is called.

No action is taken against the teacher who turns out to be a high ranking Communist party official.

These films will screen on Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24, at 7pm and on Sunday, March 25, at 6pm.

Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron star in The Greatest Showman (PG) screening on the weekend of March 30 and 31 and April 1.

The film is inspired by the story of P.T. Barnum’s creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of its star attractions.

The Greatest Showman, starring Australia’s Hugh Jackman, is an original musical drama film that celebrates the birth of showbusiness and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

Winner of the Academy Award for the best picture, The Shape Of Water (MA15+), is screening second.

It is an extraordinary fairytale of love, desire and monsters, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962.

In the hidden high-security government laboratory where Elisa works, she is lonely and trapped into a life of isolation.

Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda discover an aquatic humanoid creature who has been dragged up from deep water and now lives in a tank away from society.
