Georgy Girl in Manchester

by Modculture 13 July, 2006

Georgy_girl 40 years after its original release, the film with arguably the most infuriatingly-catchy theme tune and the most stylish wardrobe of the 60s – Georgy Girl – returns for a rare screening at Manchester’s Cornerhouse on Sunday 23rd July.

For those of you who’ve not seen the movie, Lynn Redgrave is Georgy, the dumpy flatmate of bitchy "dolly bird" Meredith (Charlotte Rampling). Georgy watches Swinging London from the sidelines, only to find herself the object of desire of her married, older boss. But soon Georgy’s dreams come perilously close to being realised in this comedy of "sexual manners".

Clothes are by Mary Quant, theme tune by the Seekers. The film is showing as part of the cinema’s regular Breakfast Club, which combines a classic movie with a full English (or veggie) breakfast. Book early as these events always sell out.

And make a note in your diary for Sunday 6th August – Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville is the next movie showing at the Breakfast Club.
