Edition 29- June 2011 

The Board of the Atlanta Holland Club and the Midtown Art Cinema cordially invites you to the Premiere
of the award-winning new Dutch film "BRIDE FLIGHT,"
which is inspired by the 1953 KLM flight which brought Dutch immigrants
-- mostly young brides -- to Christchurch, New Zealand.

The film opens Friday, June 24th at Atlanta's Midtown Art Cinema.




Only love and regret last forever

“Fascinating, beautifully acted and magnificently photographed.” -- Rex Reed, NY Observer

BRIDE FLIGHT is a lavish romantic drama inspired by the true story of the 1953 KLM flight
that entered the “Last Great Air Race” from London to Christchurch.
The flight was dubbed “Bride Flight” by the international press,
because of its special passengers -- young women with wedding dresses in their suitcases,
traveling to join their fiancés who had already emigrated to New Zealand.
Leaving behind the gloom and scarcity of post-WWII Europe, shy but sensual farm
girl Ada, dogmatic Marjorie, and Jewish fashion designer Esther are filled with
hope for a future of love and freedom. Each takes a very different journey in
their strange new land, but together with handsome bachelor Frank, they form a
bond on the flight that continues to link them for decades to come. Honored with
Audience Awards at film festivals across the country, BRIDE FLIGHT evokes a time
of slim choices and desperate optimism, with sweeping views of the New Zealand
countryside, stunning period dresses, and the faint smell of Pinot Noir from the
thriving vineyard Frank establishes in New Zealand.
(A Music Box Films release.)

Directed by Ben Sombogaart.
