Classic Cinema Club – Ealing presents: THAT SINKING FEELING (1979) at Ealing Town Hall (07 SEP 19:30):
- Directed by Bill Forsyth
- Starring Robert Buchanan, John Gordon Sinclair, Billy Greenlees, John Hughes
A jobless youth assembles several of his frustrated friends and forms what might be the most inept band of thieves in cinema, to plan and pull off a warehouse heist – steel sinks at a steal. Shot on location in Glasgow, with a bare budget and amateur actors bringing much charm to their gormless characters. This comedy thrives on improvisation, deadpan delivery, sly gallows humour, the absurd and surreal, and is always hilarious.
The first film from the writer-director of ‘Gregory’s Girl’ and ‘Local Hero’.
Named most promising director at the London Critics Circle Film Awards.
