January: Invictus, The Intouchables and Despicable Me 2

invictus3Happy New Year everyone. The cinema returns this month over the weekend of 17th & 18th of January. We will start on the Friday night with Invictus – Nelson Mandela, in his first term as the South African President, initiates a unique venture to unite the apartheid-torn land: enlist the national rugby team on a mission to win the 1995 Rugby World Cup (this is a fundraiser for Currie Rugby Club

Following the popularity of Despicable Me last year, we will be screening Despicable Me 2 on Saturday Morning. Now turned ex-supervillain, Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal.

And on Saturday night we have the delightful French comedy-drama The Intouchables. In Paris, the aristocratic and intellectual Philippe is a quadriplegic millionaire who is interviewing candidates for the position of his carer. Out of the blue, the rude African Driss cuts the line of candidates and brings a document from the Social Security and asks Phillipe to sign it to prove that he is seeking a job position so he can receive his unemployment benefit. Philippe challenges Driss, offering him a trial period of one month to gain experience helping him. Then Driss can decide whether he would like to stay with him or not. Driss accepts the challenge and moves to the mansion, changing the boring life of Phillipe and his employees.
