Haydn Radford -A freelance writer born in Adelaide, who loves living here. I write about movies, theatre, entertainment, literary and art events. I am happy to promote & review your events.

Everyone is invited to a hilarious evening on New Year's eve with Maggie Smith at her devious best and an all-star cast that includes Rowan Atkinson, Kristen Scott Thomas and Patrick Swayze in the special screening of the 2005 black comedy movie Keeping Mum.

Keeping Mum opens with a young pregnant Rosie Jones (Emilia Fox) travelling on a train with a very large trunk, which is leaking blood. She is detained by the police where she calmly reveals the two dismembered bodies being her unfaithful husband and his mistress. Rosie is sentenced by the judge (Roger Hammond) to a secure unit for the criminally insane for manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

Forty-three years later, Walter Goodfellow, the pious and well-meaning vicar (Rowan Atkinson) of the village of Little Wallop, is busy writing the perfect sermon for a convention. He is completely unaware of the mayhem and conflicts among his local villagers or the unresolved problems within his own dis-functional family. Then everything changes with the arrival of the new housekeeper Grace (Maggie Smith) who has a few secrets of her own and some unique methods of problem solving which provide lots of laughs.

This will be a fun evening with a glass of bubbles on your arrival and another to toast the New Year.

The evening will be complete of course with an old school presentation that includes shorts, cartoons and the Mighty WurliTzer Organ.

This sounds Fabulous. I love the Capri & 'Keeping Mum' sounds hilarious. Not to mention you can't go wrong with any movie starring Maggie Smith and/or Rowan Atkinson. Thank you for sharing :)

Has the neon green star left the profile of Capri, oh dear. Used to love it shining down Goodwood Road.
Never mind, it features in that little doco by SA Film Corp c1974.
