Guibord s’en va-t-en guerre (My Internship in Canada) (2015)

All eyes are on independent politician Steve Guibord (Huard), as he holds the swing vote on Canada’s decision to go to war in the Middle East. The pressure’s on from both sides of Parliament — and from his wife and daughter.

Frozen in the spotlight, Guibord’s closest ally becomes Souverain (Exantus), his naïve intern from Haiti, who commands the situation with playful quips, charming idealism and a good dose of humour.

Written and directed by Oscar nominee Philippe Falardeau, Guibord s’en va-t-en guerre’s satirical spin is a fun — and relevant — political farce. The film was nominated for three Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Picture, and earned the Special Jury Citation for Best Canadian Feature Film at the Toronto International Film Festival.
