The popular Movies that Matter series continues with a new selection of films this Autumn. Each evening begins at 7:30 pm and involves watching a film and participating in reflective discussion guided by Eileen O’Driscoll during which there will be an opportunity to reflect both personally and as a group on the issues and values illustrated. The films from Poland, UK, Australia and Spain portray a variety of issues. Through these films we get a glimpse of what it means to be truly human; nobility of character shines through in them all.
The Film for October is Big Fish UK 2003, 125 MINS, CERT PG.
Hearing the tall tales of his ailing father, William Bloom seeks to uncover the facts behind the fiction of a larger-than-life character. Directed by the marvellously creative Tim Burton, this film raises questions about the relationship of truth and story.
