September 9 at 1:00 PM: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN
“I’m going to take a crack at the British Open,” says workingman Maurice Flitcroft, gloriously evoked by Oscar winner Mark Rylance, 62. With the support of his loving wife (Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins) and disco-dancing teens, he tees off at the 1975 British Open. The inexperienced amateur golfs to the worst score in the competition’s history — and national fame as the little putter who could, the Don Quixote of the links. Phantom of the Open is the entertaining and uplifting portrait of an ordinary extraordinary man, a perfectly imperfect marriage and the power of positive thinking in bucking the system and realizing the impossible.
September 16 at 1:00 PM: THE OUTFIT
From the Academy Award-winning writer of The Imitation Game (Graham Moore) comes The Outfit, a gripping and masterful thriller in which an expert tailor must outwit a dangerous group of mobsters in order to survive a fateful night.
Academy Award winner Mark Rylance stars in our first two films for Fall Friday Film Club 2022
September 23 at 1:00 PM: MRS. HARRIS GOES TO PARIS
The Friday Film Club goes from Tailor to Haute Couture:
MRS. HARRIS GOES TO PARIS tells the story of a widowed cleaning lady in 1950s London who falls madly in love with a couture Dior dress, and decides that she must have one of her own. After she works, starves and gambles to raise the funds to pursue her dream, she embarks on an adventure to Paris which will change not only her own outlook, but the very future of the House of Dior.
September 30 at 1:00 PM: THE DUKE
THE DUKE is set in 1961 when Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery’s history. Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government agreed to provide television for free to the elderly. What happened next became the stuff of legend. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge – a startling revelation of how a good man set out to change the world and in so doing saved his son and his marriage.
