Films @ The Garrison this weekend…Posted by Lisa Ward on April 17th, 2012 No Comments
Shetland Arts is screening another great selection of films at The Garrison Theatre this weekend.
Hop (U) is a chance to see last Easter’s hit film on the big screen. Fred, an out of work slacker, accidentally hits the Easter Bunny as he drives home. With the Easter Bunny unable to hop, Fred is forced to take him in as he recovers, and the unlikely pair must save Easter together. Hop blends state of the arts animation with live action.
Secret of Kells (PG) is back, due to popular demand, after a highly successful screening at last year’s Discovery Film Festival. Young Brendan lives in a medieval outpost known as the Abbey of Kells, where the ongoing threat of Viking raids causes the peaceful monks to live in a state of fear. With his uncle, Abbot Cellach, and Aisling, a young wolf-girl, Brendan labours to fortify the abbey walls so his people will be protected.
Bel Ami (15) stars Robert Pattinson as Georges Duroy, a soldier returning from war. Once home in Paris, he gets into a high social set and soon comes to believe that the secret of success is by seducing women. So he sets about seducing the most powerful and influential women until he has reached previously unimaginable heights. But he makes many enemies on his way…
Hunky Dory (15) sees keen drama teacher (Minnie Driver) at a secondary school in Wales in the mid-70s. One summer she decides that rather than put on yet another production of Oliver, she will try to inspire the kids to do a musical version of The Tempest, with music they really love. But can she pull it off when they seem more interested in dating than the musical?
21 Jump Street (15) is a comedy starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as a pair of bungling cops. Failing their first arrest, their punishment is to return to high school undercover to bust a drugs ring, and decide the best way to do it is to throw a huge party. But the combination of drink, drugs and these two idiots does not bode well for good crime clear-up rates.
