A Sunday Afternoon Treat

An audience of 56 people gathered at the Community Centre on Sunday afternoon for the first Sunday Film show, more than enough to ensure a good audience experience. The film was The Railway Man, a powerful story of war, hate and reconciliation, starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman. Based on the true story of Eric Lomax, it recounted one man's torture at the hands of the Japanese in Burma and his difficult journey back there to meet his former enemy and to achieve peace and understanding.

At times the film made uncomfortable viewing as the details of the brutality endured were made clear. But it also highlighted the difficulty many veterans had of dealing with the effects of their captivity at a time when post-traumatic stress was less understood and 'talking' about experiences was not encouraged.

The Community Centre Committee was pleased with the response to the film and will certainly consider running another Sunday film, though these are likely to be in the winter months only. The adult films on a Friday evening seem to be better attended but offering a variety of times may help to draw in a wider number of people and offer greater choice to more local residents.
For details of all film showings, and for all other Community Centre activities, please go to www.tarvincommunitycentre.orgor go to our Facebook page or keep a look out for notices on the High Street
