SOLDIER OF ORANGE (SOLDAAT VAN ORANJE)
Director: Paul Verhoeven.
Stars: Rutger Hauer, Jeroen Krabbe, Edward Fox.
Holland 1940. The German Army invades the Netherlands, and a nation suddenly finds itself under Nazi occupation. What follows is one of the most controversial periods in European wartime history as the Dutch are torn between collaboration and resistance.
For 6 young college students at Leiden University the choices they make will irreparably change the fate of their homeland as their lives become an epic adventure of courage, betrayal and survival.
Based on the best selling memoir by Erik Hazelhoff Roelfzema, Soldier of Orange became the international breakthrough film for director Paul Verhoeven. It is still considered by critics worldwide to be one of the most powerful war films ever made.
Please join us for this powerful war film on Monday, November 6th at 7:00 pm.
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection, large screen & great sound!
Snacks and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.
Always a classic cartoon and newsreel prior to the feature!
