Kevin Bacon on a bike ! Surely that’s all the info you need to know for our next screening ?

This film should have been shown in November but we had a slight technical hitch (ahem !) which meant it couldn’t be shown.  So what better way to kick off 2018  than with a cheesy 80’s story of redemption, a great soundtrack, and iconic actors  Kevin Bacon followed his breakout role in Footloose with this story of a washed up stock broker who finds his calling as bicycle messenger.

Jack Casey (Kevin Bacon) used to be a hot-shot stock market whiz kid. After a disastrous professional decision, his life in the fast lane is over. He loses his nerve and joins a speed delivery firm which relies on bicycles to avoid traffic jams of San Francisco.  Although frustrated, Casey enjoys the freedom that comes with his lower responsibility. He also uses his education and business acumen to help his co-workers. When some of them are involved in dangerous or difficult matters, Casey must decide whether he should become involved. Those matters lead to a sinister web of murder and intrigue. Can Jack regain his nerve and his self-respect, and rebuild his life on a more sound basis?
