ROMANTIC DRAMA AT MURRINDINDI FILM SOCIETY – 17th June 2022

by Jun 7, 20220 comments

On Friday 17th June at Yea Shire Chambers Murrindindi Film Society will screen the 2007 romantic drama Love in the Time of Cholera.  Doors will open at 6.45  p.m.

 

Based on the book by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the story is set in 19th Century Colombia in the walled city of Cartagena.  A lowly clerk named Florentino is rejected by a beautiful young woman from a wealthy family.  She later marries a successful doctor who has a reputation gained from fighting cholera, but Florentino remains in love with her for the next 50 years.  He devotes much of his adult life to affairs with numerous other women in a desperate attempt to heal his broken heart.

 Lavishly photographed with strong performances from Xavier Bardem and Benjamin Bratt, the film explores the many aspects of romantic love, often with a disarming sense of humour.

 It is hoped as many members and prospective members as possible will brave the cold to see this different and entertaining film.

As always, first time guests will be welcomed free-of-charge.
