Dir: Neasa Ní Chianáin, David Ran Ireland 2017 Language: English Running time: 100 mins Cert: 18 Starring: John and Amanda Leyden, Headfort school Supported By: The Westmeath Independent "In the verdant village of Kells, Ireland, there's an antidote to the dark times we live in—a worn and weathered boarding school with a special magic. At the heart of the school is a bemused elderly couple, John and Amanda Leyden, who have taught with equal parts seriousness and silliness for more than 40 years. The delight of In Loco Parentis is watching the pair undertake beloved teaching rituals, from performing the writings of great authors to coaching a fledgling rock band, like donning a favourite jumper. The couple’s kindness and inventiveness usher national school–age children, hailing from around the world, through patches of loneliness and angst. Although the Leydens pretend to dread loud, screaming kids, the truth is they cannot go a day without them. But even the most beautiful traditions wane. As John and Amanda ponder retirement, unapologetically chain-smoking in their ivy-covered cottage, the film poses a quietly profound question: Will their intimate and caring cultivation of future generations live on, or will it vanish like so many community-centered practices?" - Sundance Film Festival 2017

Join us on Tuesday 5 September 2017 8pm for our screening of "A Man Called Ove". Join us in the bar from 7.30 for a pre- film drink. Entry costs €10 for your first film and €8 for every film thereafter. Remember there is no obligation to attend all screenings. Dir: Hannes Holm Sweden/Norway 2016 Language: Swedish,Persian with subtitles Running time: 116 mins Cert: 15A Starring: Rolf Lassgard, Bahar Pars, Filip Berg, Ida Engvoll, Tobias Almborg, Klas Wiljergard, Chatarina Larsson, Borje Lundberg Supported By: Dean Crowe Theatre and Arts Centre Ove is a retiree struggling to come to terms with the death of his wife - a struggle that he angrily takes out on his neighbours by strictly enforcing the estate rules. Ove’s world is unexpectedly turned upside down when a young family move in next door. Despite his initial resistance, Ove slowly forms a bond with his new neighbours and discovers a whole new side of life... Based on a novel and nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2017 Oscars, this Swedish hit is a bittersweet but charming tale of one man rediscovering himself after a devastating tragedy. Darkly comic but sensitively told, this is a true crowd-pleaser held together by a remarkable lead performance.
