Christmas Special Film Night – The Life of Brian (Jones 1979) 94 min
Join us for one of our regular film nights, which we host on the first and third Friday of every month. Films always start at 19hrs and we host supper beforehand from 18hrs (please bring a vegetarian dish to share).
Brian Cohen (Graham Chapman) is an average young Jewish man, but through a series of ridiculous events, he gains a reputation as the Messiah. When he’s not dodging his followers or being scolded by his shrill mother (Terry Jones), the hapless Brian has to contend with the pompous Pontius Pilate (Michael Palin) and acronym-obsessed members of a separatist movement. Rife with Monty Python’s signature absurdity, the tale finds Brian’s life paralleling Biblical lore, albeit with many more laughs.
