Batcombe Film Society will screen Coriolanus at the village's Jubilee Hall tomorrow.

In his acclaimed directorial debut, Ralph Fiennes has set Shakespeare's play in the modern Balkans and produced a visceral, action-packed film.

Fiennes plays the inflexible General, contemptuous of the hungry citizens' demands that grain be released from the city warehouses.

A successful raid on the Voscian city of Corioles diverts attention but his honesty and refusal to compromise lead to his going into exile and a doomed alliance with the Voscian commander Tullus Aufidius.

The strong cast includes Vanessa Redgrave, outstanding as Coriolanus' mother Volumnia.

Doors open at 7.15pm for a 7.45pm screening.

For advance reservations call Rob Sage on 01749 850934.

Kilmersdon's Reel People Film Society will be screen Tetro tomorrow.

The film sees Francis Ford Coppola return with his most personal project to date.

Set in Argentina, it focuses on two Italian immigrants: Benny and his artistic brother Tetro.

Tension builds when Benny unexpectedly turns up at his 'long-lost' older brother's door seeking explanations.

In English, Spanish and French with subtitles.

Doors open at 7.15pm for a 8pm screening.

At the screening a limited number of guest tickets are available for £5.

Visit www.reelpeople.org.uk or call 01761 418749 to book tickets.
