Wild Strawberries is our bi-monthly film club for over 55s.
This adaptation of Philip Roth’s 2008 college novel is a quiet chamber piece mixing great performances with themes of sexuality, belief and adulthood, all against the backdrop of a changing America.
Set in 1951, Marcus Messner is a New Jersey teen who exchanges his father’s kosher butcher’s shop for the Christian Winesburg College. Intellectual, social and sexual pursuits transform Messner’s life to the extent that he encounters the wrath of the college Dean and the concerns of his well-meaning parents.
Tickets: €4.25 including regular tea/coffee before the event. If you happen to look younger, please don’t take offence if we ask your age.
