The Dressmaker – January 16, 2017 @ 7pm

Directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse | Australia |118 minutes | Drama, Thriller | English |14A, eOne

the-dressmaker

This wickedly comic drama stars Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs, Labor Day) as a worldly dressmaker returning to the Australian backwater that exiled her. The latest feature from writer-director Jocelyn Moorhouse (How to Make an American Quilt) after an almost 20-year hiatus, The Dressmaker is a sumptuous, saucy, and scandalous tale of love and vengeance in the mid-1950s. It also has the most fabulous gowns this side of the red carpet.

Tilly Dunnage (Winslet) arrives in the small town of Dungatar like a gunslinger: broad-brimmed hat on her head, sleek pumps on her feet, trusty Singer sewing machine at her side. Driven away when she was just 10 years old for supposedly committing a heinous crime, the resilient Tilly found her way to Paris, where she trained under legendary designer Madeleine Vionnet. She has come back to look after her ailing mother, Molly (Judy Davis, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, To Rome With Love), but, with her beguiling, form-fitting dresses, she’s soon turning heads at the town rugby game most notably the one atop the broad shoulders of star player Teddy McSwiney (Liam Hemsworth, Cut Bank).

Principle Cast: Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth, Judy Davis

Little Men – January 30, 2017 @ 7pm

Directed by Ira Sachs | USA | 85 minutes | Drama | English | PG, The Archive

little-men

The latest from Ira Sachs (Love Is Strange, Keep the Lights On) is a poignant look at the close but fleeting friendship between two boys during their formative years, set against rapid gentrification in New York City.

Jake Jardine (Theo Taplitz) is a sensitive, artistic, and lonely kid who moves to Brooklyn with his Manhattanite parents, Kathy (Jennifer Ehle, Zero Dark Thirty, The King’s Speech), a psychiatrist, and Brian (Greg Kinnear, Little Miss Sunshine, As Good As it Gets), an out-of-work stage actor. There, he meets Tony Calvelli (Michael Barbieri), a magnetic, fast-talking charmer and aspiring actor whose mother, Lenor (Paulina García, Much Ado About Nothing, Gloria) has inherited the Jardines as the new landlords of her long-standing dress shop. The boys become fast friends and spend carefree summer days roving the streets on their scooters and rollerblades. The friendship has a particular impact on Jake, who doesn’t normally connect with people as easily as Tony does. However, things quickly begin to fall apart when the boys’ parents have a falling out over the market value of Lenor’s shop.

Principle Cast: Greg Kinnear, Theo Taplitz, Jennifer Ehle

Old Stone – February 6, 2017 @ 7pm

Directed by Johnny Ma | Canada, China | 80 minutes | Drama | Mandarin w/ English subtitles | NYR, FilmsWeLike

old-stone

Winner of the Toronto International Film Festival’s City of Toronto Award for Best Canadian First Feature, Johnny Ma’s (director of Film Circuit favourite shorts A Grand Canal and The Genius from Quintino) thrilling feature debut — about a taxi driver plunged into a bureaucratic nightmare when he takes an injured man to the hospital — takes us on an unnerving trip through China’s social strata and their corresponding levels of “justice.”

For Lao Shi (Chen Gang), a hard-working cabbie in a bustling metropolis, every day of work is a fight for his family’s basic economic survival. One day, swerving his car because his arm is grabbed by a reckless drunken passenger, he accidentally hits a motorcyclist. Passersby observe and take photos but don’t intervene, and when the ambulance takes too long to arrive, he decides to take the injured man to the hospital, where his honest act is promptly turned against him.

Ma’s film begins as a carefully observed social-realist drama — and gradually transforms into a furious noir that takes us out of the city and onto the dark roads at its outskirts. Chen’s extraordinary and sympathetic performance is essential to the film’s mission: juxtaposing Shi’s practically anachronistic honesty with society’s greedy individualism. Even as Old Stone goes into full cinematic overdrive, it does so with an engine that runs on humanism and empathy, carefully examining the cost of doing the right thing.

Manchester by the Sea – February 27, 2017 @ 7pm

Directed by Kenneth Lonergan | USA |136 minutes | Drama | English | 14A, Mongrel Media

manchester-by-the-sea

Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone, Good Will Hunting), Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn, Take This Waltz), and Kyle Chandler (Carol, Bloodline) star in this and critically acclaimed drama from writer-director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me, Margaret), about a reclusive handyman whose life is upended after the sudden death of his beloved older brother. With only his third feature in 16 years, Lonergan takes us through a familiar milieu in Manchester by the Sea, but does so in wholly unfamiliar ways.

Lee Chandler (Affleck) is the resident handyman for a small apartment complex in a Boston suburb. He spends his days shoveling snow, fixing leaks, and doing his best to ignore the tenants’ small talk. He spends his evenings either alone in his basement apartment or nursing a beer at his local pub, where he’ll pick a fight with anyone who throws a glance his way. Yet buried beneath this sadness and isolation is another life.

When he receives the news that his older brother Joe (Chandler) has died of a congenital heart condition and that, to his unpleasant surprise, he’s been appointed legal guardian of Joe’s teenage son, Patrick (Lucas Hedges), Lee returns to his nearby seaside hometown.

Despite the sudden loss of his father, and in stark contrast to his uncle, Patrick is full of life. A popular student, he juggles hockey, band practice, and two girlfriends. As this mismatched pair stumbles through the mundane details of estate planning and the awkward strain of adolescence, Lee is forced to confront his past, revealed seamlessly through flashbacks, and the realities of his present.

Principle Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler

The Eagle Huntress – March 13, 2017 @ 7pm

Directed by Otto Bell | USA | 87 minutes | Sport/Adventure | Kazakh, English | G, Mongrel Media

the-eagle-huntress

Otto Bell’s visually stunning documentary follows Aisholpan Nurgaiv, a 13-year-old girl that becomes the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter, and rises to the pinnacle of a longstanding patrilineal tradition.

It seems impossible to conceive of training wild eagles, with their seven-foot wingspans and razor-sharp talons. Yet the Kazakh people have been doing so for centuries, and the practitioners in the Bayon-Ölgii province of Mongolia are the most faithful keepers of the sacred practice. Perched precariously on the side of a mountain, with a gigantic mother eagle circling overhead, the brave girl perseveres in the face of danger and manages to capture her own baby eagle. And this is only the beginning of her adventure: under her father’s tutelage, she remains tenaciously committed to the intense training necessary to her eaglet’s development.

Aisholpan’s natural gifts for understanding and communication allow her to form a lasting bond with the bird, and with her parents support, she becomes the first girl ever to take part in the Golden Eagle Festival, competing against 70 seasoned eagle hunters. But it is only after, when she goes on a hunt, that Aisholpan will seek her true rite of passage as an eagle huntress.

Narrated by executive producer Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and featuring stunning cinematography by Simon Niblett, this riveting documentary is a rare look at one of the world’s last true wildernesses. It’s a larger-than-life story, but one that’s anchored by intimate moments. Our young heroine’s passion takes her on an incredible journey with an enriching and empowering lesson that will set hearts soaring.
