Autumn Season 2020 Purchase Tickets
 

Covid 19 Update

On the 6th of October the Irish Government implemented level 3 restrictions across the state. Under level 3 indoor theatre-based events are not permitted. This means that we have to cancel some of the films planned for this season and that our Autumn Season will not begin until 29th of October at the earliest.

A decision on this will be taken and announced here nearer that date. In the meantime we will be contacting all those who have already bought tickets in order to arrange a refund.

Potiche

(Potiche)

Director: François Ozon
France 2010
103 minutes
Cert: 15A
François Ozon has a quicksilver touch, shifting easily from stark drama to frothy comedy with each new film. This one looks to be a frothy affair but there’s a radical streak running through Potiche. With Catherine Deneuve in one of her finest comic roles and Gérard Depardieu as her foil, this is a French farce with a lot on its mind.

In 1977, in the small town of Sainte-Guenole, Suzanne Pujol (Catherine Deneuve) lives the life of a traditional housewife, doting on her grumpy husband, Robert (Fabrice Luchini), who spends his days running her family’s umbrella business into the ground. To her husband and her two grown children, Madame Pujol is a trophy housewife with no real power; in other words, une potiche.

Delightful, empowering and charming, Potiche is filled with a stylish and charismatic je ne sais quoi.
