*** MONDAY March 25th, 2019 *** Tom Jones *** DIRECTED BY Tony Richardson *** INTERPRETED BY Albert Finney, Susannah York and George Devine

Tom JonesTom-Jones-Undercroft

Tom Jones (Albert Finney), a bastard foundling raised by the kindly Squire Allworthy (George Devine), loves the beautiful Sophie Western (Susannah York), but cannot marry her due to the difference in their stations. When the villainous Blifil (David Warner) tricks the squire into casting Tom out of his household, the young man goes forth into the world on a series of high-spirited adventures, including heroic swordfights, mistaken identities, good deeds and lusty women.

Based on Henry Fielding’s enduring novel, story is set in Somerset, a West Country lush county, and in London during the 18th century. The somewhat sprawling, bawdy and vivid screenplay of John Osborne’s provides some meaty acting opportunities and the thesps grasp their chances with vigorous zest.

two for the road 2

In view of the recent passing of Albert Finney (Tom Jones, Miller’s Crossing) and Stanley Donen (Singing in the Rain) we will be showing Two for the Road, Donen’s classic film with Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn.

On their third identical voyage from London to the Riviera, Joanna Wallace (Audrey Hepburn) and husband Mark (Albert Finney) explore their 12-year marriage in a series of wry and illuminating flashbacks. They reminisce about the glorious beginning of their love affair, the early years of marriage and the events that led to their subsequent infidelities. As they try to understand their relationship, they must accept how they have changed if they are to rekindle their original love.

We are working on a plan to limit Cinematiki to 30 people each Monday night. Parking has become a problem. (last week AAA came twice to pull cars out) Your suggestions are welcome. (Please don’t bother Michelle with the suggestions or complaints)

Thanks, Tom

*** MONDAY February 11th, 2019 *** The Wife *** DIRECTED BY Björn Runge *** INTERPRETED BY Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce and Max Irons

Joan and Joe remain complements after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man’s wife. As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.
