Untouchable | Sunday 8th September 2013

APPLETON FILM SOCIETY PRESENTS
Untouchable

Sunday 8th September 2013 at 7.30pm

Directors: Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano | 2012 | French | 112 mins | 12a


For once, the hype is justified. This is a charming, uplifting French drama – an irreverent, humorous take on disability, closely drawn from real-life. It focuses on a superficially mismatched friendship between a wealthy quadriplegic and his ex-con carer – brilliantly played by François Cluzet and Omar Sy. Each has his own disadvantage – one, physical, following a paragliding accident, the other socioeconomic.  Review: GUARDIAN REVIEWS

Even the Rain | Saturday 3rd August 2013

APPLETON FILM SOCIETY PRESENTS
Even the Rain

Saturday 3rd August 2013 at 7.30pm

Dir. | 2010 | Spanish | 103 mins | 15


TAMBIEN LA LLUVIA sets up an intriguing dialogue about Spanish imperialism through incidents taking place some 500 years apart, while examining the personal belief systems of the members of a film crew headed by director Sebastian (Gael Garcia Bernal) and his producer Costa (Luis Tosar) who arrive in Bolivia to make a revisionist film about the conquest of Latin America. Set in February and March of 2000 when real-life protests against the privatization of water rocked the nation, the film reflexively blurs the line between fiction and reality in what Variety calls "a powerful, richly layered indictment of the plight of Latin America's dispossessed.".  Review: Official site
