Solstices Film Festival: Withnail and I


Solstices Film Festival, in association with The Whitaker, presents a screening of WITHNAIL AND I, the 1987 British black comedy film written and directed by Bruce Robinson.

Based on Robinson's life in London in late 1960s London, it follows two unemployed actors, Withnail and 'I' (Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann) who live in a squalid Camden Town flat in the late 1960s while squandering their finances on alcohol. Needing a holiday, they obtain the key to a country cottage in the Lake District belonging to Withnail's gay Uncle Monty and drive there, but the weekend proves less recuperative than they expected...

Running time: 1hr 47 mins.

Tickets cost £6.50 per person and must be booked in advance. (cert 15)

Food served until 7pm. Bar re-opens after film. 

Part of the inaugural Solstices Film Festival (Fri 22 - Sun 24 June), organised by local community group Solstices and presented in association with The Whitaker.  After the screening it will be complemented by an Acoustic Music Session; there's no charge for the music, but there'll be collection buckets and visitors are invited to pay what they sincerely think the bands deserve.
