Director: Michael Dowse Run Time: 102min Genre(s): Comedy, Drama
Wallace (Radcliffe) is a medical school dropout who’s been burned by bad relationships. Just when all his friends, and even his goofy roommate Allan (Driver), seem to be finding love, Wallace decides to put romance on hold.
Of course, that’s when he meets Chantry (Kazan), an animator who lives with her longtime boyfriend, Ben (Spall). The dreaded “F word” in this contemporary and hilarious romantic comedy is “friendship.” Wallace and Chantry form an instant connection, but are both committed to keeping things platonic, which might prove to be more difficult than either one of them imagined.
“The F Word has charm to spare, and Radcliffe and Kazan are irresistible.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Director: Stephen Campanelli Run Time: 101min Genre(s): Drama
Adapted from the much-celebrated novel by the late Ojibway writer Richard Wagamese, INDIAN HORSE is a powerful drama that delves deep into the shameful history of Canada’s Residential Schools. The young protagonist of Wagamese’s saga – brought to the screen by a team that includes director Stephen Campanelli, screenwriter Dennis Foon and executive producer Clint Eastwood — Saul comes to know the worst of the system’s abuses after a series of family tragedies leave him in the care of authorities in Manitoba of the late 1950s. When one of the priests – played by Michiel Huisman of GAME OF THRONES – recognizes Saul’s hockey talents, a potential pathway opens up before the youngster but like so many survivors of the schools, he remains haunted by the traumas of the past.
