PATHS OF GLORY FILM SCREENING
Stow Film Lounge presents Paths of Glory (Stanley Kubrick, 1957, Cert PG)
Regarded by many as the definitive film about the First World War and duly considered one of Kubrick's best works, we are delighted to be screening this classic on Remembrance Sunday.
After refusing to attack an enemy position, a general accuses the soldiers of cowardice and their commanding officer must defend them.
During World War I, commanding officer General Broulard orders his subordinate, General Mireau, to attack a German trench position, offering a promotion as an incentive. Though the mission is foolhardy to the point of suicide, Mireau commands his own subordinate, Colonel Dax, to plan the attack. When it ends in disaster, General Mireau demands the court-martial of three random soldiers in order to save face.
Refreshments: Popcorn and ice-creams will be available in the cinema. Mirth's bar will also be open.
