Next Movie night Saturday 25th May 2024 5.15pm – ‘Lili’: Based on a Paul Gallico story, the film unfolds in the bright atmosphere of a travelling French carnival. Here Lili (Leslie Caron) becomes a waitress, but she is fired after one night for spending too much time watching Jean Pierre Aumont, the handsome magician with whom she is infatuated. Lili is grief stricken until a lame puppeteer (Mel Ferrer) uses his little friends to woo her from sorrow. Soon she is part of his act, childishly happy with the four puppets but unable to deal with their moody master, whom she calls “the angry man”. How Lili blossoms from the shy young orphan to womanhood with the puppets as her guides ….. a very special film for everyone.
