Winter popcorn at Starcourt Theatre
AUGUST is here, and so to is the Winter Popcorn series.
It begins with the wonderfully indulgent French feature Little White Lies which has been one of the biggest box office hits in French cinema history...
Successful restaurateur Max (Francois Cluzet) and his wife Vero (Valerie Bonneton) gather a group of their friends every summer at their beautiful beach house not far from Bordeaux. When Ludo (Jean Dujardin) is badly injured in a motorcycle accident just before their seaside reunion, his friends flock to his bedside, uncertain what to do. After some intense discussion and agreeing there is nothing they can do, they decide to head off for their holiday, but plan to cut it short to come back and visit him. Once at the beach, through a succession of incidents, the group is pulled apart and dragged together by their ties of loyalty and marriage. Their relationships, convictions, sense of guilt and friendship are sorely tested. They are finally forced to own up to the little white lies they have been telling each other.
Little White Lies screens at 7pm on Sunday. Rated MA 15+
Tickets $10 at the door at Starcourt Theatre,. Lismore
