For the Largs Film Society’s second trip to the Nordic region, they are showing the 2014 film The Grump.

The Grump is a man from the past; a man who knows that everything used to be so much better in the old days.

Our story unfolds as he has to spend a weekend in Helsinki to attend physiotherapy after a fall. The Grump doesn't like this for four reasons: 1) He has to take a taxi, 2) He can't take daily care of his wife, an Alzheimer's patient, 3) He can't drive, which means he might have to sit in a car with a female driver, and 4) He has to spend time with his family. The Grump has to face his useless son to become the father he never was, teaching his son how to take care of his loved ones; a thing he has never been able to do.

The Society screens films every third Friday from September to May in the Valhalladrome at Vikingar; doors open at 7pm with a short introduction to the film before the screening at 7.30pm. Entry is to members and their guests. Membership is closed for this season, for membership enquiries please contact For more information and programme details see
