Film Club presents Chocolat


Rye Film Club continue its run of foreign films with Chocolat (2016 – 119 minutes) (French dialogue/English sub-titles) on Friday March 3 at Rye Community Centre.

This is not a rerun of the 2001 Juliette Binoche film of the same title but the recent “grand succes” to come out of France starring Omar Sy who you may remember as the black carer hired by a quadriplegic in the film The Untouchables. Sy stars in the true story of Rafael Padilla, a former Cuban slave who finds unexpected success in belle époque Paris as a circus clown. He teams up with George Footit, an English clown and acrobat and for a while all goes well, but his meteoric rise to fame and wealth cannot last as his world begins to crumble.

Only £5 per person, bar, fine film, good company – what more can one need on a Friday?
