Birr Film Club presents “Come As You Are” next Tuesday, October 15 in Birr Theatre and Arts Centre.
Directed by Geoffrey Enthoven, this 15A film stars Charlotte Timmers, Roos Van Vlaenderen and Robrecht Vanden Thoren.
“Come As You Are” follows three guys in their twenties who love wine and women. Wine they have savoured abundantly, but they have never had a woman.
Under the guise of a wine tour they embark on a journey to Spain hoping to get laid. Nothing will stop them. Not even their disabilities: one is blind, the other is confined to a wheelchair and the third is completely paralysed.
While the film introduces familiar characters (the gruff but kind-hearted driver) and plays along familiar lines, Enthoven handles the material with verve; beautifully blending the side-splitting comic with the quiet moments of despair, without lapsing into condescension or caricature.
Tickets for the 8pm show are €7/5/3 and non-members are welcome. More information is available from Birr Theatre on 057 9122911 or www.birrtheatre.com.
