Quality time on your hands during the week? Join us for these Seniors Week film screenings at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision. Today's session is "Ruby and Rata," (Gaylene Preston, 1990) a charming, funny story of two determined and manipulative women – and an 8-year-old peacemaker.

Seniors Week (10-16 October) is an annual celebration of the older people in our community organised by Wellington City Council.

"Ruby and Rata":

A fiercely independent 83-year-old, Ruby, is determined to live her own life in her own home. Despite her nephew Buckle’s efforts, she will not be interned in the Sunset Village retirement home. With Buckle’s reluctant help, she rents her basement flat to single mother Rata and her 8-year-old son Willie. Ruby soon discovers Rata is not the person she thought she was. Both women are strong-willed and unprepared to concede they might need each other’s friendship. To gain the upper hand, Ruby kidnaps Willie. But it will be the boy who brings them together.
