This long weekend we feature a couple of Lawrence/Laurence, long playing films (each over 140 min. running time). Both are epics in their own right. One is amongst the greatest movies every screened, and the other is quite possibly Xavier Dolan’s opus. Both are brilliant, enjoy!
Stationed in Cairo in 1916, Lawrence languished in the mapmaking department of British Intelligence until he was asked to find and gather information on Prince Feisal, leader of the Arab Allied forces in World War I. Lawrence of Arabia movie His desert journey inspired his first military success when he led a small contingent of Arabs against the Turkish stronghold of Aqaba.
