Toronto Film Society will begin its 2012 summer film series on Monday, July 9, with Another British Invasion. For the next seven weeks, Monday nights at the Carlton Cinema will be held captive by a pair of British Films. The first week belongs to the double bill of Sixty Glorious Years and Folly to Be Wise.
Sixty Glorious Years is the 1938 historical drama of the sixty year reign of Queen Victoria (Anna Neagle), focusing on her relationship with her husband, Prince Albert (Anton Walbrook). Folly to Be Wise (1953) follows a newly arrived army chaplain, Alastair Sim, and the trials he faces mounting a variety show for the troops. The film was based on James Bridie’s play “It Depends What You Mean“ and earned Sim a BAFTA nomination for best actor.
The first programme of Toronto Film Society’s Another British Invasion summer film series screens Monday, July 9, 2012 at the Carlton Cinema. Each programme screens at 7:30 pm, every Monday until August 27, 2012. Visit the Toronto Film Society website for scheduling and ticket information.
