DEATH and ageing are the topics of a British indie film that is set to be shown at The Blakehay theatre.

Organised by Weston's Film Society, the 2008 flick Is Anybody There? explores the tender rapport between the film's two leads, 76-year-old Michael Caine and 14-year-old Bill Milner.

Set in 1980s seaside England, this is the story of a boy who grows up in an old people's home run by his parents.

The youngster keeps busy by tape-recording the elderly residents to try and discover what happens when they die.

Doors open for refreshments at 7pm and the film starts at 7.45pm on Wednesday. Tickets are priced £2 for film society members and £3.50 for non-members.
