Cinema Club Presents: Hilary and Jackie

By Wallingford Pub... - Posted on 16 September 2009

Tuesday, October 6th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

The story of the brilliant concert cellist Jacqueline du Pre, seen from the perspectives of her sister Hilary and brother Piers. While Jackie gains international fame and fortune, she secretly longs for the stable, normal life and family her less famous sister, Hilary has built. Watson and Griffiths deliver impassioned, unforgettable performances as the two gifted sisters who are so close they can literally read each other's minds, and who share everything, even the love of the same man. The movie is an astoundingly rich and subtle exploration of sibling rivalry and the volcanic collisions of love and resentment, competitiveness and mutual dependence that determine their lives.

Discussion to follow movie. Refreshments will be served. Rated R.
