On select Wednesdays at 2pm thru the end of January, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (3200 Darnell St, 817-738-9215) hosts My Favorite Films, a series curated by Modern auditorium manager Tina Gorski, a lifelong cinephile. “The films in this series may hold special memories for you. No matter how many times you see them, they continue to draw you in one more time.” Today’s delight is Cold Comfort Farm (1995). In this John Schlesinger TV adaptation of the satirical British novel, Flora Poste (Kate Beckinsale), a spirited London society girl orphaned at age 19, finds a new home with some rough relatives, the Starkadders of Cold Comfort Farm. With a take-charge attitude and some encouragement from a mischievous friend, Flora brings the backward clan up to date while finding inspiration for her novel in the process. Tickets are free for Modern members or $5 at the museum admission desk or at TheModern.org.
