BFI Praise for A Month in the Country

Opening up to Birkin

Well some of us appreciate him.

I just discovered this, so the news is late 🙁  but A Month in the Country is the Audience Choice on the subject of Rural Life at the BFI Southbank cinema.  It will air July 17 at 8:30pm.   More information here.  I completely agree with the audience.  It is a wonderful film and Patrick Malahide gives a poignant performance as the very complicated Rev. J. G. Keach, a man who seems to crave solitude while also wishing to be a spiritual guide for a community that apparently just wants him around for weddings and funerals.

For years it has been a somewhat under-rated film, but it has received significant interest as of late with this screening (due to audience appreciation no less) and some recent Blu-Ray releases.  I’m sorry to only find out about this now, but I still thought it was worth mentioning.
