I know this is Bassackwards, and I apologize for it, but this first month of 2012 has been a busy one for the Tacoma Film Club. So for those of you who use this site, as you should, to stay focused on our activities, here is the “notice” that should have been up weeks ago.
Producers’ Film Picks for January 2012
LITTLE VOICE (1998)
Direced by Mark Herman @ 97 minutes
The film stars Brenda Blethyn, Jane Horrocks, Michael Caine, Jim Broadbent,
and Ewan McGregor.
Synopsis: LV is a pathetically shy young woman who is a recluse, staying most of the time in her room playing her late father’s records; but at night she would sing along magnificently with the divas. She was overheard by her mother’s small-time agent boyfriend, and LV was forced to perform in public while others profited from her talent.
Taglines: “The comedy that breaks all the records” & “finding your voice can be magic.”
LATCHO DROM (1994)
Directed by Tony Gatlif
The film stars La Caita, and Tony Gatlif.
Synopsis: This majestic French-made film transcends language and culture, using only music and imagery to chronicle the compelling story of Gypsy “Rom” migration from India to Europe.
THE IRON LADY (2011)
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd @ 105 minutes.
The film stars Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, and Richard E. Grant.
Synopsis: A look at the incredible life of Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of Great Britain, with focus on the price she had to pay for power, and the inherent
difficulties for a woman to finally be heard in a male-dominated world.
Tagline: Never compromise.
