Dir. David Lean (US 1955, 100mins PG)

Make an afternoon of it. . .

Katharine Hepburn is wonderful in Lean’s favourite film (re-mastered) as the American spinster whose dream of romance becomes a bittersweet reality in a glorious technicolour VenIce.

Like all David Lean films, Summertime should be seen on the big screen. . .

Tom Hanks at his very best in this intriguing and excellent western based on a novel by Paulette Giles. The true story of the former soldier who reads the newspapers to small communities in the West.

Wonderful tear-jerking true story of the dog who kept vigil for ten years at the train station where he once greeted his owner every day.  Co-star Richard Gere has never been better. Grownups may cry.
