The Midwife
Sunday 1st October | 8pm
Director: Martin Provost · 117 minutes · France · 2017.
Martin Provost (Violette, Seraphine) unites two of France’s favourite actors in this tender comedy drama about rediscovery and female friendship. Claire (Frot) is the conscientious Midwife of the title, a single mother whose self-restraint has her living a muted life… until one day Beatrice (Deneuve), her father’s care-free ex girlfriend makes contact, bringing chaos, joy and memories of happier times. https://tht.ie/2801/the-midwife

Sunday 8th October | 8pm
Director: Ceyda Torun · 79 minutes · Turkey · 2016
Thousands of street cats roam the streets of Istanbul. They visit restaurants and shops for scraps or a treat. They raise their kittens in hidden alcoves. Some of them even hunt rodents at night, much to the delight of local businesses. Kedi is a charming insight into the lives of cats, but also an affectionate portrait of a vibrant city. https://tht.ie/2805/kedi

Sunday 15th October | 8pm
Director: François Ozon · 113 minutes · France/Germany · 2016
François Ozon’s enthralling romantic drama, set in post WW1 Germany centres on a grieving woman, Anna, who finds a young Frenchman, Adrien, laying flowers at the grave of her fiancé.

But was there more to his relationship with Frantz than is being revealed? https://tht.ie/2804/a-ghost-story

A Ghost Story
Sunday 22nd October | 8pm
Director: David Lowery · 92 minutes · USA · 2017
This unique low-budget supernatural drama from David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara, is not the conventional spectral tale that its title suggests, but more a meditation on legacy, loss and longing. One of the highlights of 2017’s Sundance Film Festival, this is the most original, divisive and unforgettable film you’ll see this year. (Ideal viewing coming up to the Halloween weekend.) https://tht.ie/2804/a-ghost-story
