TOPIC: Film Club Saturday 18th October In the Loop

Film Club Saturday 18th October In the Loop 3 years, 2 months ago #1

Our choice for the noughties in Armando Ionucchi's In the Loop, starring Tom (Rev) Hollander, Peter (Dr Who) Capaldi, Chris (Mock the Week) Addison and James (The Sopranos) Gandolfini.

To those of you who are admirers of The Thick of It (and even to those who are not!) this is a marvellous piece of satirical comedy based on that TV series. Tom Hollander is the hapless British minister who gets sent to Washington to try to avert yet another Middle East war, aided and abetted in almost equal measure by the government's communications officer, the inventively foul mouthed, Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi) and by Olly, the minister's spineless, feckless assistant played by Chris Addison.

Sharply observed and written and beautifully played by the Anglo-American cast, you must see this if only for the chance to see one of James Gandolfini's last film performances - and very funny he is too! - and witness Peter Capaldi's almost staggeringly sweary performance as Malcom Tucker.

Great support is provided by Steve Coogan, Gina McKee and a lot of American actors whose names I don't know but who are bloody good!

We normally aim to start around 8pm, in case you were wondering...
