“Oh, Marion, we love you…”

co-written and directed by James Gray, 2013, USA, 120min

Even though the film is set in the 20’s in New York City, the theme of immigration is still actual today in Ireland – country that knows the story from both sides; as the country with big emigration rate in the past and also a country welcoming immigrants. The film itself is a complex tale of morality and survival with a wonderful cast who all give excellent performances. Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Renner and of course Joaquin Phoenix who seems to be to James Gray what DiCaprio is to Scorsese or Depp to Burton.

This special event came to be on the occasion of PolskaEire Cork Festival – festival celebrating the relationship between Ireland and Poland with several events in the city culminating in the soccer match between the two countries on Sunday the 29th of March.

Camden Palace Hotel and by extension The Deja View Cineclub are always eager to support the local communities through through art so we could not stay behind when we were asked by the organizers to organize a film screening.

And as always we will open the Café at 7pm where you can get tea and coffee and maybe even a glass of white. After that grab a blanket and get a seat and enjoy the selection of shorts running until 8pm all based in one way or the other on the main movie. For the next two months it also will be animation, claymation, stopmotion and similar thingtion. At 8pm-ish I will introduce the movie (or a guest speaker if I can find one) and after a trailer and maybe some very short film (if we think it enhances the viewing) we will start with the main feature.

suggested donation 5EUR (Camden Palace is a non-funded charity organisation supporting the arts in Cork so we really appreciate your donations)
