WILD STRAWBERRIES: THE EDGE OF LOVE

Director: JOHN MAYBURY

U.K. • 2008 • colour • dolby digital stereo • 110 MIN


Wild Strawberries is our monthly film club for older people. The screenings are free of charge for anyone over 50 but tickets should be booked well in advance.

Written by the acclaimed playwright Sharman Macdonald, and starring her phenomenal daughter Keira Knightley, this is a simply gorgeous period romance, charged with provocative undercurrents about art, war and gender. Knightley plays Vera Philips, childhood sweetheart of the poet Dylan Thomas (Matthew Rhys). When the two meet again in Blitz-ravaged London, Dylan’s married to free spirit Caitlin (Sienna Miller) and Vera’s caught the eye of noble soldier William (Cillian Murphy) — but their chemistry still crackles. No mere costume potboiler, this film proves as passionate and complex as its characters. — Edinburgh Film Festival Programme.

Bookings should be made well in advance through the IFI by telephone (01 679 3477), email (wildstrawberries@irishfilm.ie) or online [here].
