Ellon Cinema; Sunday 29th April ’18

The Ellon Cinema team will be back next Sunday with another two films for the community to enjoy:

Duck Duck Goose (PG) – 3 pm

Peng is a freewheeling bachelor goose who’d rather do anything than practice for the upcoming migration. He thinks he’s better than everyone else and spends his time attempting crazy stunts at even crazier speeds. In one such stunt, Peng flies too near the ground, hits a flock of ducklings and separates brother and sister, Chao and Chi, from the rest. In this unlikely meeting, Peng will begin a journey that will break his wing and nearly break his heart as he grows to understand the power of unconditional love in the form of two ducklings, who likewise grow to see him as the best father they could ever have.

Saturday, 14th April – 7 pm – Mary Magdalene (12A)

An interpretation of the story of Mary Magdalene by Helen edmunson and Phillipa Goslet. Set in the Holy Land in the first century, a young woman leaves her small fishing village and traditional family behind to join a radical new social movement. At its head is a charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth (Joaquin Phoenix) who promises that the world is changing. Mary (Rooney Mara) is searching for a new way of living, and an authenticity that is denied her by the rigid hierarchies of the time. As the notoriety of the group spread and more are drawn to follow Jesus’ inspirational message, Mary’s spiritual journey places her at the heart of a story that will lead to the capital city of Jerusalem, where she must confront the reality of Jesus’ destiny and her own place within it.

Genre: Drama
