1) Not Film

2) Anomalisa


Tuesday 23rd Feb 9 pm Light House Cinema

Charlie Kaufman’s first film in seven years is certainly worthy of your time. Add to this that it’s stop motion animation and that David Thewlis and Jennifer Jason Leigh are the voice talent. It’s a love story set around a business trip but you’ll have to get a ticket and see for yourself. The film is also nominated in the best animated feature Oscar.

Páraic wanted to be a gangster as far back as he can remember. Brought up on a diet of films he was too young to be watching by his brothers, all things 80s teens thanks to his sisters and the classics by his folks he's turned into a well-rounded (maybe a little too round) film lover. Only recently discovering North by Northwest, he longs for a train journey with a beautiful blond.
