Film Club - 6th February 2013 - “Lincoln”

During last week's Oxbridge drinks, the spontaneous idea for a film outing to watch 'Lincoln' materialised.

In a review of the movie, the New York Times describes it as being "among the finest films ever made about American politics (...) Go see this movie. Take your children, even though they may occasionally be confused or fidgety. Boredom and confusion are also part of democracy, after all. “Lincoln” is a rough and noble democratic masterpiece — an omen, perhaps, that movies for the people shall not perish from the earth."

The full review can be found here:

The programme starts at 20hrs this Wednesday (06.02): everyone buys their own tickets to Lincoln VO at UGC De Brouckere.

Between 19:30 and 20:00 hrs., Benjamin Hartmann of the Oxford Society will be standing outside the entrance to the screen carrying a blue clipboard.

Those of you who want to join the group should purchase a ticket and arrive between 19.30 and 20.00 hrs. At 20hrs Benjamin will be going in to take his seat..

After the movie we will head to the bar of the Metropole Hotel (on the other side of the street, De Brouckèreplein 31).

The invitation via Facebook can be found here:!/events/434406129960814/

That will allow is to get a rough idea of numbers.

We hope to see many of you next Wednesday
