Movie Night – The Big Hit

October 4 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


When struggling actor Etienne (Welcome to the Sticks’ Kad Merad) accepts a job directing theatre workshops in a prison, he is surprised to discover a wealth of acting talent among the initially resistant inmates. Seeing an opportunity for success, Etienne convinces the prison warden (Marina Hands) to allow the group to present Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot outside of the prison, with a tour of performances for the general public.

Based on true events, which happened in Sweden in 1985, writer-director Courcol has relocated the action to France, and employed a superb ensemble cast, to deliver a crowd-pleasing film that earned the Best European Comedy prize at the 2020 European Film Awards.
