Film club to screen hit musical

Tansley Film will open its new season on Tuesday, September 3, with the musical blockbuster Les Misérables, a spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale of romance and revolution in 19th Century France.

Directed by Tom Hooper (who also directed The King’s Speech), the film stars Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, a Frenchman released from prison after being incarcerated for 19 years for stealing bread. 

Valjean agrees to take care of Cosette (Amanda Seyfried), the illegitimate daughter of the dying factory worker Fantine (Anne Hathaway), but as a fugitive he must also avoid being captured again by police inspector Javert (Russell Crowe).

Decisions made change lives.

It’s a story of broken dreams, unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption.

Screening of the film, which carries a 12A certificate, starts at 7.30pm in Tansley Village Hall.

Refreshments will be available from 7pm. No membership is required. You can buy a Freechoice card for £20, allowing you entry to any seven films in the new programme, or you can pay £4 on the door. Either way, please book in advance via email at or by phoning 01629 584243.

Other films in Tansley Film’s 2013/14 programme include: Quartet (October 1), Diango Unchained (November 5), Life of Pi (December 3, Amour (January 7), The Impossible (February 4).
