The Perfect Candidate

The Perfect Candidate Parental Guidance

From the director of Wadjda, here is another inspiring story, this time of a young woman rather than a girl, that throws a rare spotlight on the role of women in Saudi society. Again, the pleasure lies in the intimate detail of human interactions. Maryam is the oldest of three sisters, a capable doctor who nevertheless encounters daily prejudice at the local hospital where she works. The bane of her life is the poor state of the road leading to the clinic. Her quick fix solution is to run for office in the local council elections but her intent grows wider and more serious as she sweeps up her family and community as they struggle to accept their town’s first female candidate.

I am a wheelchair user and find it difficult to go to the theatre to enjoy a good film or take in a 'bit of Culture' now and again.Flicks in The Sticks brings a lot of joy to so many people who otherwise would miss out.

Sue Macdonald

Totally loved 'The boy who bit Picasso' It was so heartwarming, funny and made me nearly cry at the end! Totally inspired me and makes me want to make theatre!

Kate Johnston

I heard the Ensemble Sakhioba and want to say what an extraordinary experience it was. A really remarkable performance - thank you for bringing them to Shropshire and I'm glad you achieved a very full audience for them.

We are regular flicks goers and we would be lost without your service. I can't tell you how much your screenings mean to people like us

Living in 'the sticks' limits access to the larger cinemas, consequently Flicks is a lovely way of seeing fairly recent films, without the hassle of planning a journey beforehand. Long may it last.

A really enjoyable experience. Friendly atomosphere and heart warming film (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) Would love the chance to do it again. What a good idea for community spirit.

Looking forward to showing films again this season. Like putting on a favourite winter coat!

I am 86 and I am a big fan of flicks. In the villages its lovely, the proper way to do it, have a glass of wine and a chat, its so much more than just a film

G.S.

Flicks is the lynch pin for most of what goes on in our village

The Film shows give me a reason to leave the house
