Winter Sleep - a film which landed the prestigious
 Palme D’Or at Cannes in 2014, is to be shown at Louth Film Club.

The film will be shown at the club on Monday, November 16 from 7pm (An earlier time than usual).

The picture, which is directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, examines the tensions that explode in a small mountainvillage in the vast Anatolian steppe after a boy throws a rock and smashes a car window.

The richness of the film’s composition and lighting creates an intense atmosphere as winter sets in.

Haluk Bilginer stars as Aydın, a former actor who is now a writer, hotel owner and landlord, while Melisa Sözen plays Nihal, Aydın’s young wife.

Paul Hill, LFC chair, commented: “There is deep psychological weight carried by Ceylan’s slow, poetic cinematic imagery.”

Membership of Louth Film Club is £10 with £4 for each film. Tickets cost £6.90 for non-members; £5.50 for concessions).
