Fall in love this winter

BFI Love SeasonThe BFI Southbank is already deep into their annual LOVE season, and invite you to join them for a programme of films selected for their power to make you laugh, make you cry, make you snuggle up to the person next to you (and potentially make a new friend if that happens to be a stranger), make you fall in love all over again.

“Three key themes arise within our two-month season: The Power of Love presents epic tales that show the struggle to hold on to tenderness, and each other; Fools For Love offers romantic comedies filled with warmth, wit, charm and poignancy; and Fatal Attractions expose the follies of desire, the violence of passion, and the intensity of obsession,” says Rhidian Davis, season programmer.

The chosen films have been swept from the annals of Hollywood extravaganza, British quirkiness and costume dramas, Bollywood’s visual feasts and Europe’s sultry thrillers.

In December watch out for Breakfast At Tiffany’s, When Harry Met Sally, Amelie and James Stewart classic The Shop Around the Corner. True Romance, Betty Blue and Last Tango In Paris, Dr Zhivago, Before Sunrise, Titanic and Gone With The Wind.

Those are just a fraction of the heartfelt offerings. For the full programme and to book cinema tickets, visit whatson.bfi.org.uk.
