WINTER 2019 FILM LINEUP

The Old Man & The Gun  - January 14th

Academy Award winners Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek lead an all-star cast, including Danny Glover, Tom Waits, Elisabeth Moss, and Casey Affleck, in director David Lowery’s true-life dramedy about an unrepentant bank robber and jail-breaker determined to live life by his own rules.

Written and directed by David Lowery (A Ghost Story) and featuring magnetic performances from Academy Award winners Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek, The Old Man & The Gun breathes invigorating new life into an old genre.

Based on the true story of career criminal and prison-escape artist Forrest Tucker, the film revives a cinematic tradition of reflecting on America's outlaw fixation while delivering an exhilarating tale of felonious mischief.

Having first been put away at age 15, Forrest (Redford) has spent much of his life in jail and much of his energy breaking out - he successfully escaped incarceration 18 times. Forrest is now in his seventies, free, and living in a retirement community, yet he cannot resist the lure of another bank heist. He assembles a gang who, though armed, rely mainly on creativity and charisma to claim their loot. They are pursued by Detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), whose official duty is galvanized by the purity of his love for the chase. With Redford subtly invoking his own storied resumé as the embodiment of a certain masculine ideal, and a sublime supporting cast that includes Danny Glover, Tom Waits, and Elisabeth Moss, The Old Man & The Gunis both entertaining and elegiac.

Infused with Hollywood's history of outlaw charm, this is the type of glorious bank-robber movie they just don't make anymore.

Principal Cast: Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover, Tika Sumpter, Tom Waits, Sissy Spacek

Shoplifters  - January 28th

Second Film of Winter 2019 season

Shoplifters

Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda

The latest from Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda (Nobody Knows) begins with the mischief and intrigue of a heist movie, but Shopliftersis much more. Osamu (Lily Franky), a middle-aged man, and Shota (Kairi Jyo), a young boy, walk into a grocery store. They play it cool, not speaking but, rather, signalling to each other with their hands and eyes. One provides cover while the other snatches goods. They stroll out the door with a hidden bounty before anyone notices. Osamu and Shota then find four-year-old Juri (Miyu Sasaki) freezing on a balcony and take her back to their poor but happy home. And though Osamu's wife doesn't want another mouth to feed, any plans to return Juri to her parents are given the kibosh after signs of abuse are discovered on the little girl's body. If they're not demanding a ransom, how could this be a kidnapping?

“Who better than Kore-eda, a director who whispers instead of shouts, is able to capture contradictions and issues though such a subtle, unforced style of storytelling?”

—Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

Principal Cast: Lily Franky, Sakura Andô, Kirin Kiki, Miyu Sasaki, Jyo Kairi

If Beale Street Could Talk  - February 11th

If Beale Street Could Talk

Director Barry Jenkins’ ambitious follow-up to Moonlight adapts James Baldwin’s poignant novel about a woman fighting to free her falsely accused husband from prison before the birth of their child.

From the director of the Oscar-winning Moonlight comes a plunge into a world of Black love, with all the pain and the joy that can go along with it. In his third feature, Barry Jenkins draws deep from the well of James Baldwin, whose profound insight into African Americans' unique place in American society serves as inspiration for this gorgeous tone poem on love and justice.

Tish (KiKi Layne) is only 19 but she's been forced to grow up fast. She's pregnant by Fonny, the man she loves. But Fonny is going to prison for a crime he didn't commit. As the film begins, Tish must break the news to her family, and his. Tish's mother, played with heartbreaking depth by Regina King, soon must decide how far she will go to secure her daughter's future. As Fonny, Toronto's own Stephan James gives a career-best performance of both grit and grace as a young man deeply in love but furious at what has befallen him.

Jenkins reveals the layers of conflicting motivations in a filmmaking style that approaches music — dipping into Baldwin's elevated language and following his characters with unabashed devotion, fully capturing the texture of '70s New York.

If Beale Street Could Talkis without doubt a romance but it's stronger than that because it refuses to indulge fantasy. Infused with Moonlight's deep lyricism and Medicine for Melancholy's flirtatious spark, Barry Jenkins's latest shows him to be our most clear-eyed chronicler of love.

““You've never seen romantic love depicted on screen with such lyrical and gorgeous intensity, or systemic injustice brought to such vivid and enraging life. Film classes will be taught about Jenkins’ use
of color.”

—Glen Weldon, NPR

Principal Cast: KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Regina King

Puzzle

Fourth Film of Winter 2019 season

February 25, 2019

Puzzle

Directed by Marc Turtletaub

Producer Marc Turtletaub (Loving, Little Miss Sunshine) makes his directorial debut with Puzzle, a gently humanist story of an unassuming housewife who comes to recognize her unspoken hopes and dreams through the unlikely avenue of competitive jigsaw-puzzling.

Agnes (Kelly Macdonald, Goodbye Christopher Robin, Anna Karenina) lives a quiet, monotonous life waiting hand-and-foot on her husband, Louie (David Denman, Logan Lucky; Men, Women and Children), and her two adult sons. After an evening of birthday celebrations — she cleans, cooks, and prepares
the house for what turns out to be her own party — she notices a gift that strikes her interest: a jigsaw puzzle of a world map. After finishing the puzzle in remarkable time, Agnes soon answers a “partner wanted” advertisement from puzzle champion Robert (Lunchbox star Irrfan Khan). As Agnes learns more about her gift at assembling the increasingly difficult puzzles Robert challenges her with, she also
begins to give voice to her long-dormant desires.

“Turtletaub goes deep on character, allowing Macdonald and Khan to reveal details of their lives,
and also their dreams and fears, in a manner that’s as natural as the charming piano score.”

—Peter Howell, Toronto Star

With: Kelly Macdonald, Irrfan Khan, Austin Abrams

The Happy Prince  - March 11th

Final Film of Winter 2019 season

March 11, 2019

The Happy Prince

Directed by Rupert Everett
UK/Belgium/Italy/Germany| 105 minutes | English, Mongrel Media - Rated 14A

The directorial debut from celebrated actor Rupert Everett (Shakespeare in Love, My Best Friend’s Wedding), The Happy Prince is at once a spirited tribute to legendary author and playwright Oscar Wilde, and an exacting commentary on 19th-century British mores.

It’s 1895, and Wilde (Everett) has been imprisoned for two years for gross indecency after his affair with Lord Alfred “Bosie” Douglas (Colin Morgan, Legend, Testament of Youth). Upon his release, he is greeted by companions Robbie Ross (Edwin Thomas) and Reggie Turner (Colin Firth, The King’s Speech, A Single Man) and quickly moves to France to spend his final years in exile. Yet, much to the dismay of his friends, Wilde reunites with Bosie, motivating his wife, Constance (Emily Watson, On Chesil Beach, The Book Thief), to cut off Wilde’s allowance. With a lack of funds, and due to the trauma he suffered in prison, the author’s health and well-being deteriorate. Still, it’s through his incomparable talent for storytelling that Wilde finds the strength to continue bringing levity and humour to those around him.

Also starring Tom Wilkinson (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Catcher Was a Spy), The Happy Prince is as flamboyant as its subject, using slow-motion tableaus to highlight Wilde’s carefree jaunts and flashbacks to reflect on his triumphs and tragedies. Everett is defiantly theatrical in both his performance
and his directorial choices. Everett also uses the film as a plea for tolerance, showcasing the degradation Wilde endured throughout his lifetime because of his homosexuality. It’s a moving portrait of one of our most revered storytellers, directed by an artist at the top of his game.

“This film is a deeply felt, tremendously acted tribute to courage.”

—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Principal Cast: Rupert Everett, Colin Morgan, Edwin Thomas, Colin Firth, Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson
