Talbot Cinema Society Announces 2019-2020 Schedule

March 1, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Talbot Cinema Society has announced the movies that will be featured at its meetings during its 2019-2020 season.  The upcoming slate is an appealing mixture that includes two dramedies, two documentaries, a rock opera, a drama, a vintage comedy and this year’s Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Film.  The remaining films are:

March 1:  Roma (Foreign Drama, 2018, Rated R for graphic nudity, some disturbing images, and language).  Written and directed by four-time Academy Award winner Alfonso Cuaron, Roma won three Oscars, including Best Foreign Film, and was nominated for seven more.  Cuaron won the Golden Globe for Best Director, and was nominated for Best Screenplay.  In his latest film, Cleo is one of two domestic workers who help Antonio and Sofía take care of their four children in 1970s Mexico City. Complications soon arise when Antonio suddenly runs away with his mistress and Cleo finds out that she’s pregnant. This film received a 96 Metacritic score out of a possible 100.

April 5:  My Talks with Dean Spanley (Dramedy, 2008, rated PG for some thematic material and mild language).  Winner of seven awards and five additional nominations at the New Zealand Film and TV Awards.  Set in Edwardian England, where upper lips are always stiff and men from the Colonies are not entirely to be trusted, Fisk Senior (eight-time Academy Award nominee and two-time Golden Globe winner Peter O’Toole) has little time or affection for his son (Jeremy Northam).  But when the pair visit an eccentric Indian (Art Malik, whom you’ll doubtless remember as Hari Kumar in PBS’ The Jewel in the Crown), they start a strange journey that eventually allows the old man to find his heart.  Sam Neill, whom you’re also likely to remember from Reilly: Ace of Spies, plays the title role.

Talbot Cinema Society meetings will be held at Temple Beth Israel, at 7199 Tristan Drive in Easton, on the bypass across from the foot of South Washington Street.  Doors will open at 3 p.m., and meetings and screenings will begin at 3:30.  Presenters for most movies are needed to introduce them and lead the post-screening discussions.

Admission is by membership only.  To join TCS, simply mail your check for $45 per person to:  Talbot Cinema Society, P.O. Box 222, Easton, MD 21601.  For more information, or to volunteer to be a presenter, feel free to contact Pete Howell at piratepete@goeaston.net or 410-924-5752.
