Film Babette's Feast

, Start Time: 14:30 New Phoenix Cinema The Pickaquoy Centre, Muddisdale Road, Kirkwall KW15 1LR

In a remote 19th century Danish village two sisters lead a rigid life centred around their father, the local Lutheran minister, and their tightly-knit church community. Both had opportunities to leave the village: one could have married a young army officer and the other become a French opera singer but their father objected in each case and they spent their lives looking after him. Years later, their father is now dead, they take in a French refugee, Babette, who agrees to work for free as their servant. After winning the lottery, Babette wants to repay the sisters for their kindness and offers to cook a French meal for them and their friends on the 100th anniversary of their father's birth. The meal is extraordinary and brings the small gathering close together.
