• LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (2006, 101 minutes, Rated R).

You just won’t see a better acted, and better cast, movie than ‘Little Miss Sunshine.’” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

Two-time Oscar-winner from directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, this story follows the irresistible seven-year old Olive (Abigail Breslin), who resolves that she will enter the ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ pageant. To help her realize her dreams, her dysfunctional family embarks on a wild, interstate road trip…culminating with one of the finest, most endearing cinematic scenes of all time. With Greg Kinnear, Steve Carell and Toni Collette.

“We get something wonderful: a scrappy human comedy that takes an honest path to laughs and is twice as funny and touching for it.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

All screenings take place in the Wilkinson Public Library Program Room. 6pm – first Monday of the month. Snacks included, FREE TO ALL.

“With its sheer warmth and likability, this good-natured documentary won my heart – a real-life THE FULL MONTY or BILLY ELLIOT or PRIDE.”The Guardian

 Winner of the Audience Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and Best Documentary at the British Independent Film Awards, Dark Horse is the inspirational true story of a group of friends from a working men’s club who decide to try their hand at the elite ‘sport of kings’ and breed a racehorse. Set in a former mining village in Wales, their foal is raised on an industrial site and grows into an improbable champion, beating the most outstanding thoroughbreds in the land. After suffering a near fatal accident, the horse is nursed back to health by the love of his owners – for whom he’s become a source of inspiration and hope.

“More stirring than NATIONAL VELVET, less sentimental than CHAMPIONS, Dark Horse never contrives to make us cry. And, like a well-told tale at the pub, it grips from start to finish.” – The List
