Louth Film Club show Looking for Eric movie starring Manchester United legend Cantona

LOUTH Film Club will be screening Ken Loach’s engaging comedy drama Looking For Eric on Monday, May 23, at the Playhouse Cinema.

Non-members will be welcome, as always, paying the cinema’s normal ticket prices.

Eric Cantona, the ex-Manchester United footballer stars as himself, but despite some clips of his greatest goals, this is not a football film.

The iconic Frenchman makes a series of mysterious appearances to Eric Bishop, a postman who’s suffering a series of mid-life crises.

Steve Evets gives a brilliant performance as postman Eric while footballer Eric proves both that he can act and that he has a sense of humour, offering a neat parody of his public persona.

Looking For Eric will be introduced by one of its greatest admirers, BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s film critic Sudip Bhaduri.

The film is Certificate 15.

Tickets cost £3.50 for members or £5.70 (£4.50 concessions) for non-members.The film starts at 7.30pm. Doors open at 7pm.
