JULY FILM: '71' - Monday 6th July 8.15pm at the Connaught

July's film is the much praised '71' (UK 2014 dir Yann Demange), a tale of a young soldier who gets separated from his unit during a riot in Belfast and has to make his way back through the hostile streets.

In some ways a flipside to Carol Reed's 'Odd Man Out' (1947) which had a republican outlaw making his way through the backstreets of post-war Belfast, '71' has met with universally good reviews "a taut nail-biting thriller" (The Guardian), "blindingly strong"(The Telegraph), with a strong central performance from Jack O'Connell ('This Is England') as the young soldier stranded in an alien and deadly landscape.



The film is at 8.15pm at The Connaught, Worthing. It is free for members, or £7 for non-members. Membership is £35 / year for 12 films, and includes use of the Worthing Film Club DVD library, and also allows reduced price entry for guests.  Details of how to join can be found here
