Richmond Film Society’s Season continues with ‘The Club’, Pablo Larraín’s excoriating allegory of a church tainted by scandals and cover-ups.
Four defrocked priests live a clandestine existence in a Chilean beach town, out of sight (and mind) of both the public and the Catholic Church. The arrival of a new ‘inmate’ disrupts their existence. What follows is an intense and thought-provoking psychological drama, suffused with moments of dark humour.
