In the summer of 2014 - the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings - octogenarian Bernie Jordan made global headlines. He’d staged a “great escape” from his care home to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating their fallen comrades. It was a story that captured the imagination of the world - Bernie seemed to embody the defiant, “can-do” spirit of a generation that was fast disappearing. But of course, it wasn’t the whole story. It was the story we all tell ourselves to make war and old age bearable. The bitter-sweet script explores the reality with wit and a very big heart. Bernie’s adventure, spanning a mere 48 hours, also marked the culmination of his 60-year marriage to Rene – the story celebrates their love without sentimentality and with an eye to the lessons we can all learn from the Greatest Generation.
Free tea and coffee will be available before the film.

Two ladies with guy trouble swap homes. Amanda (Diaz) ends up with Iris' brother (Law) in the UK, and Iris (Winslet) befriends funnyman Miles (Black) Stateside. This fairly repellent life swap romantic comedy was written specifically for these actors, but you wouldn't think it.
