Cinema Club for the Over 50s: Paris Blues, Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Friday, Oct 27

This month's Cinema Club for the Over 50's feature is the film Paris Blues starring Sidney Poitier and Paul Newman.

Ram Bowen and Eddie Cook (played by Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier) are two expatriate jazz musicians living in Paris where, unlike the US at the time, Jazz musicians are celebrated and racism is a non-issue. When they meet and fall in love with two young American girls, Lillian and Connie (played by Joanne Woodward and Dihanne Carroll) who are holidaying in France. Ram and Eddie must decide whether they should move back to the US with them, or stay in Paris for the freedom it allows them. Ram wants to be a serious composer and finds Paris too exciting; he is reluctant to give up his music for a relationship. Eddie wants to stay for the city's more tolerant racial atmosphere.

The venue is the Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Town Hall Approach Rd, London N15 4RX
