FILM SCREENING: KILLS ON WHEELS

Thu 9 August at 7.30pm

Wokingham Film Society

Certificate 15

A meaningful Hungarian action-comedy of a wheelchair-bound assassin gang. Driven by despair and fear of becoming useless, a 20 year-old boy, his friend, and an ex-fireman offer their services to the mafia. But things are not what they seem. The boundaries between reality and fiction blur and the story becomes a whirling kaleidoscope showing us gangsters and gunfights, but also the challenge of life in a wheelchair and the pain caused by a father’s rejection.

Tickets £6.50 (£4 members)         

MURDER BALLAD

This rock musical tells a dramatic story of a love triangle gone wrong, centering on Sara, an uptown girl who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers dangerously in front of her.
