COMFORT AND JOY
December 7 @ 19:30 - 22:00
Classic Cinema Club – Ealing presents: COMFORT AND JOY at Ealing Town Hall (07 DEC 19:30):
A morning radio DJ with a messy personal life struggles to get into the seasonal spirit, then becomes a witness to the crimes fuelling Glasgow’s ice cream wars: van vandalism; vendettas; sabotage and turf disputes. As he investigates the rival family businesses and unfriendly competition for control, he unexpectedly finds purpose and renewed career enthusiasm. There’s typically quirky characters and sly offbeat irony, in what critic Roger Ebert called “one of the happiest and most engaging movies you are likely to see this year – this is a wonderful movie”.
From the writer-director of ‘That Sinking Feeling’, ‘Gregory’s Girl’ and ‘Local Hero’.
Winner of the USA critics society award for best cinematography; nominated for the BAFTA award for best original screenplay.
