Bealtaine Film Club: Living


(Dir: Oliver Hermanus / UK, Japan / 2022 / 102 mins)

Thursday 25th May, 1pm

Starring: Bill Nighy, Aimee Lou Wood, Tom Burke

Mr Williams (Bill Nighy) is a diligent but rather dour bureaucrat, working in a council in post-war London. One day, he’s given a devastating prognosis: he only has a few months left to live. Stunned by the news, he abandons his usual routine. Chance encounters with a rebellious writer and a youthful colleague help Mr Williams discover a whole new perspective on both his life and work.

Admission: free, booking advised.

Presented as part of Bealtaine, Ireland’s national festival which celebrates the arts and creativity as we age. The festival is run by Age & Opportunity, the leading national development organisation working to enable the best possible quality of life for us all as we age.

Age & Opportunity Arts provides opportunities for older people to be more creative more often, to create meaningful participation and representation for all older people in cultural and creative life and to demonstrate and celebrate how our creative potential can improve with age.
