Happy 2018, film lovers of Worthing. Missed us? Well, we are back with a punch , cutting through the gloom of the winter months with an exceptional film. 

WARNING: NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED

It's the cult classic POSSESSION (1981) by acclaimed director Andrzej Żuławski.
Date: Wednesday the 10th of January 
Time: 7.30pm (Film starts at 8pm) 
Place: At our new home of Coast Cafe.

POSSESSION is Żuławski's only English language film, and Isabelle Adjani won the Best Actress prize at Cannes Film Festival in 1981 for her tremendous performance in this cult favourite. Without spoiling anything this film is, as Time Out said in their review "an intimate, intelligent drama about people, about their hold over one another. Adjani’s marriage to Sam Neill is imploding: secret love affairs come to light, harsh words are spoken and screamed, and eventually the knives come out. But that’s only half the story..."

"Possession is like nothing else - an uncompromising and idiosyncratic vision of the divisions that exist around, between and within us all" - Little White Lies . See the trailer here.

The screening is free to Worthing Film Club members (£25* per year for 12 films* + free use of our extensive DVD library), or £4 to non-members, who can buy tickets on the night.

(*Please note our new yearly membership price. Also in 2018 we will have nine screenings at Coast, and three at Connaught Studio)
