This is a classic style of British comedy about murder, romance and everythig in between. Directed by Jonathan Lynn, it stars the slyly self-deprecating Bill Nighy, Emily Blunt and Rupert Grint. Nighy plays a professional hit man, who follows in his parents’ footsteps as an assassin. He is methodical, efficient, heartless and a loner, though his elderly mother thinks he should find a wife. His latest assignmant is to eliminate the delightfully amoral Rose, who has stolen a painting from the deliciously villainous Ferguson. But things don’t go according to plan, and Tony, a garage worker, becomes involved in an increasingly tense situation.
As with much British humour this is a remake of a French film, but with a decidedly British take. Despite the subject, it is very funny romantic comedy.
“Wild Target” will screen on Friday 17th August, at the Faith Wine Education Centre. A Czech Republic short, “The T Shirt”, screens at 7.30, followed by a short interval before the showing of the main feature.
