In a remote Icelandic farming valley, two brothers who live a few hundred metres from each other but haven’t spoken to each other for 40 years. They communicate, if necessary, by writing letters which are carried from one house to the other by a sheepdog. When their flocks of expertly bred sheep are diagnosed with a deadly disease, their lives are turned upside down. Rams is a little gem that deserved to win the foreign language Oscars, but was not selected. Which is a great pity and to quote film critic Mark Kermode, “I liked it very much and it is the best Icelandic, dead-pan comedy about sheep farming you’ll see this year.” This 15 certificate film will delight you.
The Hillcrest Cafe opens at 6.00 for delicious hot food at very reasonable prices. The film starts at 7.30. Tickets for the film are £5.00 each and are available from the Hillcrest Centre on the night.
