Viceroy’s House (12A)
Starring Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon and Simon Callow.
Viceroy's House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville), great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people.
The film's story unfolds within that great house. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite - Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi - converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.
Friday 20th October
Whisky Galore (PG)
Starring Gregor Fisher, Eddie Izzard, Sean Biggerstaff and Naomi Battrick.
A remake of the 1949 film. Set in the Second World War when whisky rationing is in effect
Scottish islanders on the Isle of Todday try to plunder cases of whisky from a ship that is stranded on rocks just offshore. The SS Cabinet Minister was carrying 50,000 cases of Scotch whisky to America when she ran aground affording the islanders the opportunity to get their hands on the 'water of life.' There are two problems though; the local minister (a strict Sabbatarian) who will not allow work to take place on a Sunday and Captain Waggett, the Home Guard officer who wants to stop any looting and who also searches for the whisky in the islanders' homes afterwards.
