WICKED LITTLE LETTERS

Inspired by a true story. Set in a1920s English seaside town, the film follows two neighbors: deeply conservative local Edith Swan and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding. When fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. These letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town's women begin to investigate the crime, they suspect that something is amiss.  A very funny British comedy crowd-pleaser with heartfelt performances from Olivia Colman and Jessie Buckley, Wicked Little Letters is a jolly bit of fun! 

Rated 14A (coarse & sexual lang) 1hr42

CIVIL WAR

**Ends this week**

In the near future, a team of journalists travel across the United States during a rapidly-escalating multiparty Second American Civil War that has engulfed the entire nation. The film documents the journalists struggling to survive during a time when the U.S. government has become a dystopian dictatorship. Critics are calling Civil War a masterpiece about war journalism with an award caliber performance from Kirsten Dunst. A heart-in-mouth, urgent, crowd pleasing spectacle, Civil War is one of the year’s best films and will likely inspire needed conversation.

Rated 14A (violence, coarse lang) 1hr50

THE OLD OAK

The Old Oak is the last pub standing in a once thriving mining village in northern Englan. There is growing resentment and a lack of hope among the residents, but the pub and its proprietor TJ are a fond presence to their customers. When a group of Syrian refugees move into the floundering village, a decisive rift fueled by prejudices develops between the community and its newest inhabitants. The formation of an unexpected friendship between TJ and a young Syrian woman named Yara opens up new possibilities for the divided village. The final film of prolific British director, Ken Loach, The Old Oak is an engrossing, thoughtful, heartfelt, and hopeful film that champions empathy, unity, and unconditional kindness.

Rated 14A (coarse lang) 1hr55

GIACOMO PUCCINI

La Rondine

Puccini’s bittersweet love story with soprano Angel Blue starring as the French courtesan Magda, opposite tenor Jonathan Tetelman as Ruggero, an idealistic young man who offers her an alternative to her life of excess. Maestro Speranza Scappucci conducts Nicolas Joël’s Art Deco–inspired staging, which transports audiences from the heart of Parisian nightlife to a dreamy vision of the French Riviera.  Runtime: 2hrs57

CHALLENGERS

Tashi Duncan, a former tennis prodigy turned coach, makes no apologies for her game on and off the court. Married to a champion on a losing streak, Tashi's strategy for her husband's redemption takes a surprising turn when he must face off against the washed-up Patrick, his former best friend and Tashi's former boyfriend. As their pasts and presents collide, and tensions run high, Tashi must ask herself, what will it cost to win. Challengers is the cinematic equivalent of a match point -- a riveting romance, thrilling plot twists, and an unpredictable ending. Easily one of the best films of the year! Featuring terrific performances from Zendaya, Mike Faist, and Josh O'Connor.

Rated 14A (coarse lang) 2hrs12

 

GODZILLA x KONG:

THE NEW EMPIRE

The almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla are pitted against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence—and our own. The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.  Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is great fun. With amazing action sequences, it’s everything you want in a Classic Kaiju movie.

Rated PG (coarse lang, violence) 1hr55

RU

After a perilous sea crossing, young Vietnamese Tinh and her family arrive in Quebec, where they begin their new life. Thanks to a warm welcome from everyone, including the family who sponsors them, Tinh slowly adapts to her new reality. Shy and reserved by nature, Tinh will have to draw from deep within herself the determination needed to adapt to her new reality. Based on the Governor General's Award-winning novel, Ru is a must-see. Powerful storytelling, and a love letter to Canadians, Ru was the winner of the 2024 Victoria Film Festival Cultural Currents Award.
