A busy week at the David Lean this week with four films for you. First up, on Tuesday we have another screening of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, a prequel to the first movie based on the ABBA songs. This is October’s Babes in Arms screening and starts at 11.00, so if you (and your baby) are fans of the Swedish supergroup’s music, do come along.
The Rider, our film on Tuesday evening, is a truly wonderful semi-documentary which follows rodeo rider Brady Jandreau, as he recovers from a head wound inflicted during a rodeo, and begins to realise the change this will have on his life. This is the second film by Chloé Zhao, and like her previous movie was shot on a reservation in South Dakota.
