Wild Strawberries is our bimonthly film club for over 55s.

This month’s IFI season, featuring films in the context of the Bechdel Test, gives us a chance to revisit this consistently popular story that focuses on women and their friendship during a time of social challenge. With brilliant performances, the film uses a flashback structure and the storytelling of nursing home resident Jessica Tandy, whose visitor (Kathy Bates) becomes empowered by the friendship to change her life. There are tear-jerking moments but it’s not all soft, as the women past and present talk life, love and friendship.

€3.85 including regular tea/coffee before the screening. Wild Strawberries is our film club for over 55s. If you are lucky enough to look younger, please don’t take offence if we ask your age.

This event is part of Beyond the Bechdel Test, our season throughout July focusing on the work of directors who have explored the complex ties between women that are an integral aspect of the films’ narratives, named after the American cartoonist Alison Bechdel who introduced the idea in her 1985 comic strip.
