FRI FEB 23: 8 WOMEN
(Fr/UK 2002, Ozon, 111 mins, Cert. 15, French with subtitles) We're delighted to kick off our 2018 SCREEN84 season with this hilarious black comedy musical written and directed by Francois Ozon. Based on the 1958 play by Robert Thomas, 8 WOMEN features a glittering all-female cast including Isabelle Hupert, Catherine Denueve, Emmanuelle Béart and Fanny Ardant. Revolving around an eccentric family of women and their employees in the 1950s, the film follows eight women as they gather in an isolated, snowbound cottage only to find the family patriarch dead with a knife in his back. Trapped in the house, every woman becomes a suspect, each having her own motive and secret. Described by critics as 'Frothy, delirious, over-the- top fun', this is the perfect antidote to beat the winter blues! Don't miss!
