Irish theme to food and film evening

Angus Arts’ latest food and film night will be held at The Retreat in Glenesk this Friday, November 14 when the offering will be John Michael McDonagh’s movie ‘Calvary’.

Sue Waddicor, Angus Arts administrator, said: “The synopsis of the film is hugely intriguing. After being told he will be murdered in one week’s time, Father James Lavelle, played by Brendan Gleeson, finds himself with just seven days to determine who his would-be killer is and put his affairs in order.

“Prevented by the ‘seal of confessional’ from going to the police, instead he opts to engage with and try to understand his small-minded and morally scurrilous parishioners with the hope of dissuading the one amongst them intent on his death.

“It’s a darkly comic thriller with the added bonus of being set against the stunning beauty of Ireland’s west coast.”

The Retreat will once again provide food to complement the film, this time Irish stew, a cool dessert, and a plentiful supply of the black and white brew. The food will be served from 7.30 p.m. with the bar opening at 6.30 p.m. for those wishing to relax with a drink beforehand.

Pre-booking is required for catering purposes and tickets, costing £10, are available by telephoning 01561 298173/01356 670304 or e-mailing
