BEATRIZ AT DINNER : Review by Jan Flynn
Described as the first film to comment seriously on Trump's America, Beatriz at Dinner - Maleny Film Society's next offering, on Saturday 10 February - stars Salma Hayek, who played the artist Frida Kahlo in the 2002 film 'Frida'. This time Hayek is Beatriz, a Mexican alternative therapist and masseuse in California whose ancient VW refuses to start as she is preparing to leave her client's mansion. This results in a spontaneous invitation from her client Cathy to stay for a dinner party at which the tension, not surprisingly, soon builds between the hostess, her wealthy husband, Grant, and guests real estate mogul Doug and his wife - and the immigrant Mexican Beatriz, who is at first mistaken by Doug for staff. Differences in social status, privilege and wealth ensure a fiery exchange in which the unrestrained Biatriz expresses her contempt for the values of the other dinner guests. Directed by Puerto Rican, Miguel Arteta, this 2017 comedy-drama becomes a vehicle for cutting comment on contemporary American society. An American-Canadian production, it is M rated and runs for 82 minutes.
Screening will begin at 7.15pm in the Maleny Community Centre. Members of the Maleny Film Society may pre-book online or at the Maleny Information Centre.

Tickets will be available at the door for non-members and the cost is: adults $13, students with ID $8 and children under 16 $5.

Dinner will be catered by Wild Rocket and served between 6 and 7 pm.

A drinks bar and a tea and coffee stand with home-made slices will also be open.

Everyone is welcome.

Maleny Film Society

Well our Australian Film Festival is over for another year and what a great event it was. Our films, chosen by our selection committee (and the shorts by Heart of Gold International Film Festival) were well received and well attended. Malenyites enjoyed our special guest Max Cullen on both evenings and for our Meet a Film Insider session. Max was also an enthusiastic participant in our Unpacking Cinema workshop. Locals loved revisiting Maleny Film Cooperative shorts in the Screening Maleny Session too. Now to look forward to our next festival in 2019! ...

A religious institution more concerned with its reputation than the suffering of victims within its walls? Sound alarmingly familiar? And, being set in a country invaded and occupied by Nazis only adds to the tragedy.

The Innocents - Maleny Film Society's next offering on Saturday 13 January - is set in Poland in 1945. This Polish/French collaboration depicts how Mathilde, a young French doctor, (Lou de Laage) is summoned to a convent in Poland where she finds a nun giving birth, and a number of others in advanced stages of pregnancy as a result of being raped by firstly German, and then Soviet, soldiers.

To compound the trauma, the Mother Superior seems more concerned with the Church's reputation and insists that the doctor pledge secrecy. Tensions are inevitably heightened, not only because of Mathilde's lack of faith, but the harsh reality of the new anti-Catholic Communist government. This is a restrained but confronting and gripping study of female suffering in the aftermath of World War Two. Evocatively and thoughtfully directed by Anne Fontaine, it has been said that - finally - this is a war film by women about women.

The Innocents is rated M and runs for 115 minutes.

Screening will begin at 7.15pm in the Maleny Community Centre, Maple Street.

Members of the Maleny Film Society may pre-book online or at the Maleny Information Centre.

Tickets will be available at the door for non-members and the cost is: adults $13, students with ID $8 and children under 16, $5.

Dinner will be catered by Wild Rocket and served between 6pm and 7pm.

A drinks bar and a tea and coffee stand with home-made slices will also be open.

Everyone is welcome.
