With Memory on Film titles showing throughout May, from your rich and varied suggestions for films we chose this Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr weepie, guaranteed to stir recollections of romance.
Recalled in Nora Ephron’s Sleepless in Seattle, the film features Grant as the New York-bound playboy, Nickie, who falls for fellow traveller Terry (Kerr), a former nightclub singer heading to start a new life with her fiancée. Chemistry abounds between the pair as the ship travels west, and their promise to meet on the Empire State Building will leave even the most cynical of viewer believing in true love.
Wild Strawberries is our film club for over 55s. Tickets: €4.45 including regular tea/coffee before the event. If you happen to look younger, please don’t take offence if we ask your age.
