    Film: “45 Hours” (to be discussed)

    British drama directed by Andrew Haigh, 2015.  Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay play the lead actors.  Two stalwarts of British talent in the 60's, Kate and Geoff, read a letter that rocks their world.  The news that the ice encased body of  Geoff's German first love, Katya, who died more than 50 years ago after falling through a crack in a glacier as they hiked in the Swiss Alps.  The letter seemed innocuous, at first, but we soon see how it will change their entire life. Charlotte Rampling was nominated for Best Actress and “45 Hours” was nominated for Best Picture in 2015.
