Featuring at the Rye Community Centre Film Club on Friday 06 March – Mr Turner;  Profoundly affected by the death of his beloved father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady, with whom he eventually lives in Chelsea. Throughout this period, he travels, paints, visits country aristocracy and remains an outspoken member of the Royal Academy of Arts and is both celebrated and reviled by both public and royalty alike, let alone his great contemporary John Constable. An award-winning performance from Timothy Spall (pictured below) and one of the finest films in Mike Leigh’s long career.  (7pm start, doors 6.30)
