Classic Cinema Club of Ealing screens films. We start with a short introduction and after the film have a knowledgeable and lively discussion

November/December theme -- Lost the Plot
As these characters try to better their lives, get rich quick, or work on their relationships, they learn that the best intentions and best laid plans often go awry.

Dramatic obstacles, the force of destiny, or sheer bad luck twist their decision-making, in a series of comedies about winners and losers.

Including some movie star charm, films made in Ealing, and a meet the filmmaker event, we finish the year with fun and cheer

The Apartment
Directed by Billy Wilder
Starring Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, Fred MacMurray

125 minutes -- certificate PG -- in English

C.C. Baxter is a lowly accountant at an insurance firm, who wants to be more than just a tiny cog in a huge mechanism.

In hope of a promotion to climb the corporate ladder, he lets out his Manhattan abode to the company executives for their out-of-office affairs.

Meanwhile, he pines after an elevator attendant in the work building, both of them striving to summon some self-worth in the impersonal arena of big business in the big city.

After ‘Some Like It Hot’, Billy Wilder and co-writing partner I.A.L. Diamond crafted a sweet and sour comedy-drama.

Their trademark dark humour and cynical perspective is buoyed by sophisticated storytelling and hilarious dialogue, and illuminated by the central characters’ connection at its heart.

It is now ranked highly in many lists of the best films ever made
