110 minutes, 2010, Drama

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

Fans of The Sopranos may not be aware that James Gandolfini (Tony) is also a fine actor away from his New Jersey mob too. In this well-played film, he’s a plumbing contractor whose unhappy marriage sees him seek comfort in the arms of a local waitress. When business takes him toNew Orleans, he wanders into a bar (Badda Bing, anyone?) where he encounters stripper Mallory.

The film takes unexpected turns and the performances are what pull it off: from Gandolfini himself who alternates from resigned to fatherly to determined and loving, to the fabulous Melissa Leo as his wife. Finally there’s Kristen Stewart – if you thought she could only do Twilight’s vampire-loving teen, well think again. 

€3.85 including regular tea/coffee before the screening. 

Also showing this month is Strictly Ballroom, which we are showing as part of The High Tea Hop, a day of cultural events in Temple Bar to get the active retired thinking and moving!
