NCW Film Club Season 9

Yet another season of film to bring us up to Christmas. We are settled into our new routine of screening on the first Friday of the month, for three months. It seems to have become a very social occasion with lots of folk arriving early to relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine and taking the chance to meet new people or catch up with friends. Add in a good film and we think its a recipe for a good night out!

As ever we found it challenging to select three films. It can feel like a bit of a risk, especially when everyone has their own idea of what is a good film. Also we try not to get too much into a comfort zone and like to stir it up occasionally with a more challenging film. But always we hope they are films that you will feel were worth seeing.

So this seasons selection?
