Our Beloved Month of August

Free (No ticket required - First come first served)
7:30PM (Doors open 6.30pm)
INDOOR: O’Girasol

In the heart of the Portuguese mountains, a father, daughter and cousin return home to share a love of music.

The Guardian: An ­intense, even passionate story surfaces from this calm millpond. Tânia (SĂłnia Bandeira) is the singer in a dance band run by her overprotective father. He is obsessed with Tânia’s resemblance to her mother, who ran off with a ­Lisbon doctor many years before, and deeply angry and scared at her ­growing ­infatuation with her cousin HĂ©lder ­(Fábio ­Oliveira). Their story is   involving and unexpectedly moving. Our ­Beloved Month Of August is a real one-off: ­eccentric and singular and ­cerebral: an arthouse event, yes, but also witty and emotionally engaged. I found myself thinking about it for days afterwards – and smiling a very great deal. Try it.
