The Midwife (15) 7.30pm tonight (Friday) and Churchill (PG) 7.30pm tomorrow (Saturday), The Film Place, Buckingham
This French language film with English subtitles centres around Claire, a conscientious midwife in her late 40s, who has settled into routine and self denial. Her orderly life is turned upside down by the arrival of Beatrice, her late father’s ex-lover who turns up unexpectedly with a terminal disease and an account to settle. Churchill is a biographical drama that sees tensions mount for Winston Churchill as D-Day nears in June 1944. Oddly fearful of repeating past mistakes, Churchill is reluctant to embark on the large scale campaign that the entire war effort hinges upon. Clashing with his political opponents, the troubled leader receives unwavering support from his wife Clementine who tries to prevent him losing confidence and inspire him to achieve greatness. Adults £5.50, concessions £5, students/children £3. Tickets available on the door or from The Old Gaol or online:
