‘Noah’ (2014)    12 Rating

Darren Aronofsky, the Academy Award winning director, takes the helm of this epic and somewhat controversial interpretation of the biblical tale of   Noah.  Russell Crowe portrays Noah as a tormented, dysfunctional man in a corrupt and ruined land.  The supporting cast features Jennifer Connelly,   Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins and Ray Winstone; in fact the women’s roles are greatly expanded and are made to be far more important than is   suggested in the Bible story.  The special effects are impressive, and help to invoke what life might have been like in those times, and during the time of an immense flood.  The film is both spectacular and intense but received some mixed reviews: whilst the characters and effects were praised, it strayed too far from the Bible for some people, and not far enough for others!  Come and see ‘Noah’, and make up your own mind!

Free admission, tea & coffee, but bring your own popcorn!
