THE REVENANT

Inspired by true events, The Revenant captures one man's epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass endures unimaginable grief, a frigid winter as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald in his quest to survive. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy give remarkable raw performances in this powerful, brutal and beautiful film.  Nominated for 12 Oscars.

ROOM

Jack, five, was born in captivity. His Ma was abducted when she was 17 and the shed in which he and his Ma are confined is all he knows. But when Ma decides they have to escape, she risks everything to give Jack the chance to make a thrilling discovery of the outside world. Heartbreaking, heartwarming and heart-stopping, Room is one of the best movies of the year.  Featuring stunning, soul-stirring performances from Brie Larson and 7-yr-old Jacob Tremblay (who is Canadian and from Langley, BC).  Nominated for 4 Oscars.

Rated PG (coarse lang, violence & sexually suggestive scene) 2hr

YOUTH

Two longtime friends, Fred, an acclaimed composer and conductor, and Mick, a renowned filmmaker, vacation together in the Swiss Alps. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career.

Into the Forest

 

Feb 5 @ 7pm

Nell (Ellen Page), Eva (Evan Rachel Wood) and their widowed father (Callum Keith Rennie) have survived a series of blackouts before, but when the latest one appears permanent, they’re forced to figure out how to sustain and protect themselves. Well-stocked and living a few miles from civilization gives the family a jump on disaster preparedness, but the film makes it clear that they’re just as dependent on modern conveniences as anyone else. The two women convey their desire for normalcy by maintaining routines to avert falling into despair as they’re forced to disconnect and improvise but still prepare for the unknown. Based on Jean Hegland's book, critically-acclaimed director Rozema avoids the mainstream fire and brimstone and shows intimate moments and real emotion between two sisters trying to survive.

The heart of

Mrs. Sabali

 

Feb 6 @ 3pm

A tender, tragicomic award-winning film with touches of the surreal and the fantastic. Centered on the strange, beautiful story of Jeannette, we learn of her severe heart condition keeping her trapped in a suburb of Montreal, and of her romantic connections which spark and stumble. When she receives a new heart, she is befriended by her donor’s son, a Malian teenager who believes Jeannette to be his mother reincarnated, holding on to old memories.

Feb 6 @ 7pm

GUEST IN ATTENDANCE: Director Brian D. Johnson Fifteen years after the death of one of Canada’s iconic poets, director Johnson celebrates the life of Al Purdy and his impact on a young generation of Canadian poets, writers and singers. As a man of much complexity, Purdy was a rock star and raconteur who did not hold back or censor himself and approached poetry with his heart. Through a compilation of interviews with friends and fans (including some of Canada’s best talent, including Margaret Atwood, Joseph Boyden and Sarah Harmer), you see into his life over his extensive career.

The true story of Swampy (Shane Jacobson), an eccentric chicken farmer who, with the help of his granddaughter Olivia (Coco Jack Gillies), trains his mischievous dog Oddball to protect a wild penguin sanctuary from fox attacks in an attempt to reunite his family, keep his daughter (Emily Sarah Snook) close by, and save their seaside town. Director McDonald gets the tone just right with a clear sense of comic timing, alongside Damian Wyvill's beautiful cinematography.  It's a genuinely sweet and funny film with a positive message about the environment.

My internship in Canada

 

Feb 7 @ 7pm

A smart comedy that will have Canadians smiling from ear to ear. Whether in The Good Lie or Monsieur Lazhar, director Falardeau is taken with topics that speak to strangers in a strange land. In My Internship in Canada we delight in a Haitian intern (Irdens Exantus) navigating his way through the opportunistic world of Canadian politics alongside MP and former hockey player Steve Guibord (Patrick Huard) as he traverses his huge riding and becomes the deciding vote in a move to declare war. With a background in Canadian politics and international relations it’s no wonder that Falardeau deals with such timely topics.

When Elephants were young

 

Feb 8 @ 7pm

This documentary by local director Patricia Sims, narrated by William Shatner, explores peoples' relationship with elephants in Thailand.  Sims' camera follows Wok, a mahout (elephant guardian) and his elephant Nong Mai as they perform for tourists on the streets of Bangkok.  Nong Mai has been in the family for a decade and the opportunity arises to release her into the wild, but the question becomes: can you afford to release your elephant when your family relies on it?  With intimate footage of Wok and Nong Mai, this eye-opening story relates the efforts to save the Asian elephant population and establish self-sustaining populations.

Five nights in Maine

 

Feb 9 @ 3pm

Director Maris Curran's debut feature explores grief with wide-open eyes and a true gift for character-driven storytelling. After Sherwin (David OyelowoSelma) loses his wife in a car crash, he decides to go to his mother-in-law, Lucinda (Dianne Wiest) with whom his wife recently reconciled and whose last wish was that they meet. As Sherwin reaches out, the two develop an unspoken competition as to who has the greater loss. Oyelowo and Wiest are, at turns, arresting and profoundly sympathetic.

The Lobster

 

Feb 9 @ 7pm

A wickedly absurd film from Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, ALPS) about a dystopian future where single people have 45 days to find a partner before being transformed into animals. Recently left by his wife, David (Colin Farrell) must report to The Hotel for partnering. Trying to abide, at first, by the rigid rules and sterile atmosphere, he soon escapes to the woods where he meets other rebel singles and is drawn to a woman played by Rachel Weisz. Director Lanthimos continues to tell successfully dark, deadpan and existential stories and one can see hints of Bunuel and Renoir at their most surreal. Winner, Jury Prize, Cannes Film Festival

Determined not to lose, Lily decides that she must become the new queen; however, she’ll have to do more than simply outsmart the other girls. To demonstrate her commitment to tradition, talents must be learned, dresses must be stolen, lies must be told and the competition must be crushed! Miss India America is a tale of ambition, and what it means to win in both the South Asian community and at large.

A phone call from his dead mother sends recently divorced Frank Mollard (Anthony LaPaglia) down a new path when it turns out to be a wrong number. The call leads to a friendship with Sarah, the dialer, in a wryly observed and funny tale.  Throw in the subtext of Frank as a realtor and Sarah’s suspicious son and we are in for a quirky ride. Director Matthew Saville (Felony, Noise) once again has an assured hand as he builds this warmhearted character study with strong performances by Anthony LaPaglia and Julia Blake (remember her elegant work in Paul Cox’s Innocence

Family is a fickle thing. When Jeff (Jason Ritter) and Marla (Emmanuelle Chriqui) receive an invitation from their dad (James Brolin) to spend the weekend with his new wife and her kids, they are hesitant but need a chance to escape the city. What follows is a clashing between the two families, a drink-infused weekend, an arrest, and all-out war in this broad comedy. Director Currie (Fido, Mile Zero) delves back into the intricacies of family behaviour with his usual mix of drama and laughs.

Feb 11 @ 7pm

Japan's record-breaking 2011 earthquake and tsunami hit over 90 cities and took over 18,000 lives on Japan's northeast coast. It also displaced over a million tons of debris but that hardly seemed to matter at the time. Within a year, that debris began showing up in the Pacific Northwest. This time, though, beachcombers knew where these floating foreign oddities came from and what had been lost. This is the story of the folks in Canada and the US who have made it their mission to reunite these items with their original owners and to reflect on not only what was lost but what can be regained.
