Capital Celluloid - Day 54: Wednesday Feb 23, 2011

Etoile: The Duke Mitchell Film Club, King's Cross Social Club, 2 Britannia St, WC1X 9JE, 7pm

Darren Aronofsky's impressive Black Swan has an abundance of film references. Many mention The Red Shoes but for me Repulsion, along with other Roman Polanski movies such as The Tenant and Rosemary's Baby, were more influential.

Tonight the Duke Mitchell are screening Etoile, a widely forgotten early Jennifer Connelly film from 1988. Have a look at this article by film critic Ambrose Heron and tell me you are not intrigued. The Duke Mitchell team are guaranteed to put on a superbly planned show and the centrepiece tonight promises to be quite an eye-opener.

Here are the details.

Here is a clip from the movie.
