Mike Leigh’s film Secrets and Lies
January 17, 2020 @ 7:00pm-9:30pm$5 – $35
Presented by the Weston Film Club at Walker Farm “Secrets and Lies” Winner of the Golden Palm for best picture and Best Actress at Cannes, the Golden Globe for 1997, 3 BAFTA awards, nominated for five Oscars, Secrets and Lies is the story of Hortense, a young optometrist whose adoptive parents have died. She sets out to find her birth mother and discovers she is alive, as are her birth brother and sister. Roger Ebert wrote: “Moment by moment, scene after scene, Secrets and Lies unfolds with the fascination of eavesdropping. We are waiting to see what these people will do next. caught up in the fear and the hope they will bring the whole fragile network of their lives crashing down in ruin. When they prevail – when good common sense and good hearts win over secrets and lies – we feel almost as relieved as if it had happened to ourselves.”
