Upcoming Film Monday 13th November 2017: Final Portrait: Starring Geoffrey Rush and Armie Hammer. Geoffrey Rush is at his best in this fascinating portrait of influential Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti. Set in Paris 1964 and based on a true story. Alberto Giacometti, the famous artist, bumps into his old friend, the American critic, James Lord, and begs that he sits for a portrait because he has an interesting face. It'll just take a couple of days in his studio. Lord is flattered by the request and as the days go by and turn into weeks and weeks seemingly with no end in sight he realises his entire life has been hijacked by this erratic genius. The portrait continues to ebb and flow. Veering between frustration and joy, Lord ultimately sees logic in the artist's chaotic mind and together we witness a genius complete one of his last masterpieces.  For a flyer, click here.

Independent Theatre Special Offer to IAF Members Only

Evelyn Waug's Brideshead Revisited at the Goodwood Theatre166a Goodwood Road, Goodwood (opp Capri Cinema).  Wednesday 22nd November (6.30pm) and Thursday 23rd November (7.30pm).

The Independent Theatre has a reputation for high-quality stage adaptations of classic novels and promises a stunning production of Waugh's much-loved masterpiece - Brideshead Revisited. Adapted for the stage by Roger Parsley and Directed by Rob Croser. The cast includes Will Cox as Charles Ryder, Ben Francis as Sebastian Flyte and Madeleine Herd as Julia.

Late in World War II, Captain Charles Ryder finds himself billeted in the grounds of a stately English home.  Recognising it, his memory immediately transports him back to the 1920's, and his association with the doomed Catholic aristocrats that lived there. Made famous by the classic 1982 Granada television serial, starring Jeremy Irons and Anthony Andrews, this lyrical, romantic tale lends itself perfectly to the stage.
