Absolute Beginners (Temple, 1986):
Sanctum Soho Hotel, 20 Warwick Street, London, W1B, 7pm
Plus Q&A with director Julien Temple.
This is a Society Film Club at Sanctum Soho screening and you can find out more about the people behind the club here. The Society Film Club put on a great night and there couldn't be a better place to see a movie set partly in Soho than in the heart of Soho.
Here is their introduction to the night: Set against the post-war Britain, a time in which pop culture is transforming from jazz to a new generation on the verge of the 60s, a young hip photographer (Colin) falls in love with an aspiring fashion designer (Crepe Suzette). Directed by Julien Temple, Absolute Beginners features David Bowie, Sade, Ray Davies and stars Eddie O’Connell and a break-out performance by Patsy Kensit. The film has become a cult classic, mainly through it’s incredible soundtrack (featuring Bowie, Sade, The Style Council and Ray Davies). Clive Jennings will lead a fascinating conversation with director Julien Temple, Eve Ferret, who appears in the film and Roger Burton, who consulted on the memorable styling, before the screening, with an audience Q & A afterwards.
