Film: The Commitments (dir. Alan Parker)
Jimmy Rabbitte (Robert Arkins), a self-proclaimed promoter, decides to organize an R&B group to fill the musical void in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland. The band comes together but ends up consisting entirely of white musicians who have little experience with the genre. Even though their raw talent and lofty aspirations gain the group notoriety, the pitfalls of fame began to tear at their newfound friendships as they prepare for their big show. Based on the novel by Roddy Doyle.
Invite your friends, buddies and mates and bring some snacks & drinks so that we all have something to munch on during the screening.
The discussion after the film is led by Dr. Dolmányos Péter.
