The Tango Open Air Cinema in Echternach launches a new season this week with four films being screened in English.
The tenth season of the Tango Open Air Cinema on the banks of the Echternach lake opens on Friday July 18 with a screening of cop comedy 22 Jump Street. The film starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as the hapless undercover agents sent to bust a drugs ring at a college.
Also on the bill in English are the Academy Award winning space adventure Gravity with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (entrance costs just €3) and a special Ladies’ Night screening of comedy Walk Of Shame starring Elizabeth Banks at which female audience members receive a free glass of crémant.
The final English screening is of Richard Linklater’s acclaimed drama Boyhood, filmed over 12 years following the growing up of a boy, played by Ellar Coltrane, from the ages of seven to 19.
Linklater favourite Ethan Hawke plays the boy’s father and Patricia Arquette the mother, but it is Coltrane’s performance and the care and love that Linklater pours into the project that steal the show and leave audiences with what Xan Brooks of The Guardian calls “an astonishing achievement…beautiful movie.”
