Calendar Girls (2003) with Q&A

We are delighted that the locally-based cinematographer of this film, Ashley Rowe, will be joining us for this screening and holding a Question and Answer session after the film.

Calendar Girls is a well loved comedy that follows a Women’s Institute’s unusual fundraising effort.

After the death of her best friend’s husband from cancer, spirited Yorkshire housewife Chris Harper (Helen Mirren) hatches a scheme to raise money for a memorial to him.

Utilizing a tradition from the Woman’s Institute association, Chris encourages Annie (Julie Walters) and their friends to create a calendar… with the novel detail of using the middle-aged women of their village as the nude models.
