Sacrifice Lent Film Course - Gran Torino
Join us at 20:00 this Wednesday 14th March in the Parish Rooms for the next installment in the St Mary’s Lent Film Course - Gran Torino.
Gran Torino - Directed and Produced by Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood is in fine form playing Walt Kowalski a disgruntled war veteran who is angry about his life and also his neighbourhood.
He does not like his next door neighbours, Hmong immigrants from Southeast Asia.
This is not helped when a teenager from the house attempts to steal his prize possession, a 1972 Gran Torino Car.
Yet, over time he befriends the boy and protects his neighbours from a local gang.
As the intimidation increases, Kowalski must decide how far he will go to protect them.
