MWWM film TRAILER click here. A great cast, starring Golden Globe winner Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain, Shutter Island), rising star Eddie Redmayne (TV’s Birdsong, Les Miserables) and Kenneth Branagh (TV’s Wallander, Harry Potter); the film explores a week Monroe spent filming with Laurence Olivier and her relationship with Colin Clark, who formed a special friendship with the beleaguered Hollywood star.
Also starring Judi Dench, Emma Watson and Zoe Wannamaker. A glamorous evocation of 1950s England, but showing the many pressures on Monroe at that stage of her life. If Monroe’s life hadn’t ended in tragic circumstances when she was only 36 in 1962, she would now be 86 years old.
FILMBOX has use of 2 cinema spaces and as we’ve sold out our studio cinema for this film we’ll be showing it in the stunning, recently named Bromley Hall (still at Langley Park Centre for the Performing Arts, Beckenham – nr Eden Park station), which has a HUGE screen and stereo sound; we’ve been told it’s the best cinema screen around – so do come and see for yourself.
A Year 13 student team will be running the show tomorrow night – a great chance for them to demonstrate their business and entrepreneurial skills, so do come and support them and discover a great new place to go in the Bromley & Beckenham area.
