In The Mood For Love (film)

Over to the Seaford Community Cinema for today's post as they are screening a suitably romantic film on Valentine's Day in February.

In The Mood For Love is a Hong Kong film, originally released in 2000 and written and directed by Wong Kar-wai. It was nominated for the Palme d'Or at that year's Cannes Film Festival.

In 1960s Hong Kong, two people move into new apartments next door to each other on the same day. Both Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung) and Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung) are married and find themselves often left alone as their respective partners work extreme hours. They begin to meet by chance, soon realising that their partners are having an affair and console their broken hearts by developing a relationship themselves.

Barn Theatre, Fri 14th Feb, 19.30.
Tickets £6 adult, £5 member, available online, in person in advance from Seaford Tourist Office or in person on the door if there are any left.
