Flicks in the Village: The team at Flicks in the Village would like to apologise for yet another change of film but they have been having problems sourcing The 100 Foot Journey and hope to show it later on in 2015.But as an absolutely superb alternative, on Thursday February 5 Flicks in the Village will be showing Jersey Boys (15). From director Clint Eastwood comes the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic ‘60s rock group Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the hit songs that influenced a generation: “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll,” “Bye Bye Baby” and many more. John Lloyd Young (reprising his Tony Award®-winning portrayal of lead singer Frankie Valli), Erich Bergen (songwriter Bob Gaudio), Michael Lomenda (Nick Massi) and Vincent Piazza (Tommy DeVito) play The Four Seasons, and Christopher Walken stars as mobster Gyp DeCarlo. Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the centre of the group-with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet’s coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honour learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public. So why not come along and tap your feet to these wonderful golden oldies? The film starts at 7:30pm with refreshments served from 7pm. Membership forms are available on the night or you can always pop into the Butchers shop in Pett and grab an application form.
