Minari Twelve

A Korean-American family pursues the American Dream in 1980s rural Arkansas. David (a scene-stealing Alan Kim), a seven-year-old with a heart murmur, moves with his parents and sister from California to a mobile home in the countryside. There, his father Jacob plans to start a farm specialising in Korean vegetables, while his mother Monica frets about money. The arrival of Monica’s mother from South Korea, certainly not the grandmother David had in mind, complicates matters further. Gentle, funny and moving, coloured by a child’s viewpoint and based on director Lee Isaac Chung’s own story, it immerses you in the experience of a family straining to balance dreams with survival.

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.

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


The Film shows give me a reason to leave the house
