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

Any list of best American female actors today would undoubtedly include the stars of this very successful film. Julianne Moore and Annette Bening are moms Jules and Nic. They are in a long-term and committed relationship and their kids Joni and Laser were conceived by artificial insemination.

When Joni (Mia Wasikowska, luminous in the recent release Jane Eyre) reaches 18, she decides to look up her biological father. Into what seems like a fairly unconventional family comes vegetable-growing, über-cool Paul, leading a carefree existence until he finds he has a daughter eager to get to know him. Needless to say, his intrusion causes all kinds of tensions to surface and the two women deal with the situation in very different ways. Amid this there are great scenes of tenderness, humour and warmth as the family struggles to redefine itself.

€€3.85 including tea/coffee before the screening.
