The Guardians (Certificate 15) is the next film presented by Stogumber Cinema. It is directed by Xavier Beauvois and concentrates on those left behind rather than the battles being fought at the Front.

It is an affecting human drama of love, loss, and resilience. The women of the Paridier farm, under the deft hand of Hortense, the family’s matriarch (Nathalie Baye,) grapple with the workload while the men are off at the front. Hortense reluctantly brings in an outsider, a teenage orphan, Francine (Iris Bry), to help her daughter Solange (Laura Smet). Newfound independence is acquired, yet emotions are stirred especially when the men return from the front on short leaves. French with English subtitles.

Doors open at 7pm when a short film or trailer for the next film, Bohemian Rhapsody showing on Friday 5th April, will be screened with the main feature film starting at 7:30pm. Refreshments will be available including Styles ice-creams, tea, coffee and a range of drinks from the bar. Tickets are available from stogumbercinema@gmail.com or on the door, £5 adults, £3 accompanied under 16s.
