French Fridays

We are happy to let you know that we will have 6 movie nights instead of the usual 5!

This year again, the Alliance Française de Newcastle has partnered with the Newcastle Film Society and the Towers Cinema Newcastle to bring you French movies never released in Australia before.

On each night, pack your passport and jump into France for a few hours, enjoy some French delicacies including pastries, wine and cheese prior and during the screening and discover new films and short films in French with English subtitles. 

There is a traditional French little market at the cinema, starting at 6pm, followed by the movie starting at 7pm.

We hope to see you there!

Canada, France (2015) 97min - DRAMA (M)

In French with English subtitles

Directed by Xavier Dolan,
Starring: Gaspard Ulliel, Nathalie Baye, Léa Seydoux, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard

After a 12-year absence, prize-winning dramatist Louis returns home to tell his family that he is terminally ill. Upon his arrival, he is greeted with bickering and recriminations from his family who have been left behind. Beneath their affections for Louis, each encounter shows the confusion and disappointment felt by his long unexplained departure. Old tensions begin to surface. The gathering of his mother, brother, sister and sister-in-law develops from a tight-lipped greeting into a fully-formed storm. All while, the beautiful and doomed Louis is waiting for his moment to break the news.
