Hot Pursuit in Movies@Gorey

From Friday, July 31th – Book Now

Vicente Cortez is one of the most dangerous and notorious drug dealers around, and when the police secure his wife (Sofia Vergara) as the key witness in the case against him, their task is to keep her safe. Witnesses against Cortez usually end up in a body bag, so they have to take extra care to ensure she can testify.

The problem is, the officer assigned to the project (Reese Witherspoon) isn’t exactly what you’d call the sharpest tool in the box. From the moment she greets Cortez’s wife, she realises that this is all going to be a lot harder than she expected, and getting them both back to safety seems almost impossible.

Starring Reese Witherspoon (Wild, Inherent Vice) and Sofia Vergara (Wild Card, New Year’s Eve), Hot Pursuit comes courtesy of director Anne Fletcher, whose previous hits include The Proposal and 27 Dresses. With a quick-fire script and thrilling on-screen chemistry between the two leads, Hot Pursuit is a hilarious action comedy.

“Everyman” Live at the Movies @ Gorey, Thurs, July 16th at 7pm. (FROM JIM RYAN)

There’s a great treat in store for theatrelovers, the late-fifteenth century Morality play, “Everyman”, Live from London’s National Theatre; one of the oldest plays in English drama, it’s rarely performed nowadays. So, given the excellent standards we have come to expect from The ‘National’, in the past few years at the Movies at Gorey, and in my own case, over many decades now, it’s a rare opportunity for those who love the theatre to see one of the great seminal plays in our theatre.

In the NT production, Everyman is played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, who first came to international prominence in the marvellous 2013 film, “12 Years a Slave”. Ejiofor, who played the slave, Solomon Northrop, was nominated for an Oscar and won a Bafta award for his role in that film; I thought it a superb film and Ejiofor was simply magnificent as the slave in a real-life story of Northrop, a freeman, who was sold in Washington D.C. and spent 12 years in slavery in Louisiana. I look forward eagerly to seeing Ejiofor in the role of Everyman in this live screening.

“Everyman”, a pre-Reformation drama (written c. 1500), is of the genre Morality Play, a dramatic allegory. The Morality Play is a dramatisation of the battle between good and evil in the human soul, of man’s search for salvation and the temptations to which he is subject on his journey through life. “Everyman”, (“The Summoning of Everyman”, it its full title), is written in Middle English.  Morality plays such as “Everyman” have been a great influence on our theatre – Marlowe’s “Dr Faustus”, to cite but one.

“Everyman” is an allegorical tale in which the hero is summoned by Death. A messenger is sent to tell him that God is about to sit in judgement on his soul. When Everyman tries to get people and things from his life on earth to accompany him and plead his case before God, his Good Deeds alone go with him on that road.

“Everyman” is a play that asks probing questions of all of us about what are the really important things in our lives. Coming from the ‘National’, with a great leading actor and a great supporting cast, I believe it’s not to be missed.

Blianta tar éis bás a mháthair, bíonn Ben agus a dheirfiúir beag Saoirse ina chónaí lena n-athair i dteach solais in aice an chósta. Is páiste ciúin í Saoirse. I ndáiríre, níl sí tar éis focal a rá ariamh, agus bíonn frustrachas ar Bhen faoi seo. Oíche amháin, téann sí ag féachaint thart, agus cóta álainn bán a mháthair uirthi. Nuair a thagann sí cois farraige, tagann sí ar an rúndiamhair a thugann míniú di faoi cé hí féin.
Tagann imní ar Mamó Ben agus Saoirse fúthu, agus tógann sí iad chun cónaí léi sa chathair. Ach ní féidir dlúthcheangal Saoirse leis an bhfarraige a shárú. An féidir léi fanacht dílis di féin, nó an scarfaidh an fhad í uaithí féin agus an máthair nach raibh aithne aici uirthi ariamh?
Bhí an scannán aoibhinn seo ainmnithe don scannán beochana is fearr ag Gradaim an Acadamh, agus tá neart moladh dearfach faighte ag an scannán ó bhí sé léirithe don chéad uair ag Féile Scannáin Idirnáisiúnta Toronto 2014. Le fuaimrian draíochtach a léiríonn go maith spiorad an finscéal, tá Amhrán na Mara íontach mealltach agus mar phléisiúir mór do dhaoine a théann chuig an bpictiúrlann.
