Parasite

Parasite Fifteen

This superb blackly comic satirical thriller swept up awards including the Palme d’Or at Cannes and dominated the Oscars, the first Korean film to do so. A downtrodden family, the Kims, eke out a hand-to-mouth existence in a basement apartment. Struggling to earn enough for basic survival, their luck changes when the son, Ki-woo is employed to teach English to the daughter of the wealthy Park family in their suburban home. Slowly and cunningly, the Kims infiltrate every aspect of the Parks’ daily life. But when an interloper threatens their newfound comfort, a battle of class warfare breaks out, with things going first comically, then horribly, wrong. Full of energy, verve and a transgressive visual wit, PARASITE is incredibly watchable but also brims with rage at the inequalities of contemporary capitalism.

I am a wheelchair user and find it difficult to go to the theatre to enjoy a good film or take in a 'bit of Culture' now and again.Flicks in The Sticks brings a lot of joy to so many people who otherwise would miss out.

Sue Macdonald

Totally loved 'The boy who bit Picasso' It was so heartwarming, funny and made me nearly cry at the end! Totally inspired me and makes me want to make theatre!

Kate Johnston

I heard the Ensemble Sakhioba and want to say what an extraordinary experience it was. A really remarkable performance - thank you for bringing them to Shropshire and I'm glad you achieved a very full audience for them.

We are regular flicks goers and we would be lost without your service. I can't tell you how much your screenings mean to people like us

Living in 'the sticks' limits access to the larger cinemas, consequently Flicks is a lovely way of seeing fairly recent films, without the hassle of planning a journey beforehand. Long may it last.

A really enjoyable experience. Friendly atomosphere and heart warming film (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) Would love the chance to do it again. What a good idea for community spirit.

Looking forward to showing films again this season. Like putting on a favourite winter coat!

I am 86 and I am a big fan of flicks. In the villages its lovely, the proper way to do it, have a glass of wine and a chat, its so much more than just a film

Flicks is the lynch pin for most of what goes on in our village
