FRIENDS OF ROCK ROAD LIBRARY PRESENT
… an exciting new film group at Rock Road Library has a mission to bring a unique opportunity to see new films in familiar surroundings!
As the number of places is limited,  reservation of a place in advance is essential, to add your name to the entry list:
  • e-mail rockroadfriends @yahoo.com or
  • drop a note, addressed to ‘FRRL Film Group’, in the FRRL letterbox near the Library entrance noticeboard. 
 Subscription to a season of three films is £15.00, or £7.50 (£6.00 concesssions) for just one; payment will be collected at the door.
Doors open 6.30 p.m and refreshments will be available. Film starts at 6.50pm to allow for sufficient time for discussion at the end. Each film is introduced and given a context by Rikki Morgan-Tamosunas followed, after the screening, by further discussion.

The ‘Lives of Others‘ won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film 2007.

Directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, it is an outstanding psychological and political thriller set in East Germany in the 1980s – the film is in German with English subtitles.
An official of the East European government is given the task of the surveillance of  a playwright and his girlfriend. Initially dedicated to recording their lives in order to gain favour with his boss he gradually finds himself sympathetic to their passions and ideals and finds himself compromised as he becomes more involved with their life and relationships.
