2 Film
Hotel Salvation (PG), 7.30pm tonight (Friday) and Finding Your Feet (12), 7.30pm tomorrow (Saturday), The Film Place, Buckingham
Drama comedy Hotel Salvation is an Indian arthouse film. A nightmare convinces an elderly man that he is about to die and so he decides to travel to the holy city of Varanasi, on the banks of the Ganges, for salvation. His accountant son puts aside his problems at home and work to join him on what proves to be a redemptive trip. Drama comedy Finding Your Feet (pictured above) stars Joanna Lumley and Timothy Spall. This is the simple and touching story of a rather snobbish woman who discovers her husband of 40 years is having an affair with her best friend. She has to address her life and moves in with her estranged bohemian older sister. The two could not be more different. The journey of self discovery that follows involves dance class and a romance with a salt of the earth handyman. Tickets £5.50 adults, £5 concessions, £3 students/children.
