I KILLED MY MOTHER (J'ai tué ma mère)

Directed by Xavier Dolan-Tadros






NOT RATED


 
SYNOPSIS

The turbulent relationship between a mother and a son is explored  in this stunning, semi-autobiographical tour de force from 20-year-old writer, director, producer, and performer Xavier Dolan.

Hubert Minel, a brash 17 year old, dislikes his mother intensely. He gauges her with contempt, only seeing her out-of-date sweater, her kitschy décor and the vile bread crumbs that lodge in the corners of her noisy mouth. Below the surface of these irritating traits, lie the ingrained mechanisms that his mother has always cultivated so dearly – manipulation and guilt. Hubert, confused and torn by a love-hate relationship that obsesses him more and more each day, wanders in and out of an adolescence that is both marginal an typical, combining artistic discovery, openness to friendship, ostracism, and sex. All the while, he is consumed by his all encompassing contempt for this woman he somehow once loved.

THE MAGIC FLUTE

Adapted for the Screen and Directed by Kenneth Branagh



NOT RATED


 
SYNOPSIS

Mozart's "The Magic Flute," has enjoyed huge popular appeal and captivated audiences of all ages since it was first performed in 1791.  This visually breathtaking cinematic experience, with an English libretto written by Stephen Fry, conducted by James Conlon and astonishingly realized by director Kenneth Branagh, weaves drama and comedy in an egaging way while focusing on a compelling story populated by extraordinary characters.

On the eve of the first global war a magical drama unfolds as Tamino sets forth on a perilous journey in pursuit of love, light and peace in a world afflicted by darkness, death and destruction. An eerie quiet descends over a landscape still untouched by conflict as Tamino waits anxiously with his fellow recruits for the command to go into battle. In the ensuing chaos he is transported to a twilight world caught between dream and nightmare where he is rescued from certain death by a trio of field nurses.

When Papageno (keeper of the canaries employed to detect the presence of gas in the trenches) stumbles onto the scene and attempts to take credit for saving Tamino, the Sisters dispatch the two soldiers on a deadly mission. The duo must rescue Pamina, the lovely daughter of the Queen of the Night, who has been kidnapped by the dark lord, Sarastro. What follows is a spectacular musical adventure in which the destiny of a pair of young lovers may help determine the fate of nations and the lives of millions.

THE MAGICIAN

Directed by Scott Ryan





NOT RATED


 
SYNOPSIS

‘When Melbourne hit-man Ray Shoesmith discovers that his next-door neighbor is a film student, he commissions him to document his life.  The footage is to be released in the event of his early death. The focus is not on the violence, but on the conversation, the banalities and intensities of human interaction and obsessive interest in detail. We see what makes Ray tick, even as we witness his brutal efficiency.  This darkly comic tale is fictional narrative, shot like a documentary. Its main character is a likeable killer, whose strangely moral illustrations take a jab at everything from the legalization of drugs to the prevalence of gays in Hollywood.

RT: 85 min, 35mm color, aspect ratio 1.85, sound: Dolby Digital, digital exhibition format: Digital Betacam, aspect ratio 16x9 anamorphic (1.78), sound: stereo, in English, (country of origin: Australia)

MARY PICKFORD, THE MUSE OF THE MOVIES

Directed by Nicholas Eliopoulos





NOT RATED


 
SYNOPSIS

Mary Pickford, The Muse of the Movies” traces the life and work of the legendary silent film star, movie pioneer, and shrewd business woman who co-created United Artists Studios and was a major force in the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Pickford’s life (1892-1979) also parallels an even larger story, the telling of the “birth of the cinema” itself.  Mary, known as “America’s Sweetheart” was the first actress to earn one million dollars during a single year, and the only star who has ever received a 50% profit share of her movies.  Through restored vintage audio recordings, Pickford narrates much of her own story, aided by the dulcet tones of actor Michael York. Cameo interviews with Adolph Zukor, famed aviator Amelia Earhart, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Buddy Rogers and Lillian Gish, in conjunction with rare home movies give the viewer an in-depth look into the early world of American cinema.

Runtime:  102 minutes, in color and black and white, exhibition formats:  DCP, HD-Cam, Digital Betacam, aspect ratio: 4x3 full frame (1.33), sound: Dolby SR, in English, country of origin: U.S.A.,  not rated by the MPAA

SHAKE HANDS WITH THE DEVIL 

Directed by Roger Spottiswoode






 
SYNOPSIS

Director Roger Spottiswoode brings a very special film realization of the acclaimed best-seller by General Roméo Dallaire to the screen in "Shake Hands with the Devil," the story of a Canadian commander torn between his duty and his conscience when he finds himself eyewitness to hell on Earth.

In 1993, the United Nations dispatches Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire (Roy Dupuis) to far off Rwanda to oversee a fragile cease-fire. A brilliant, workaholic officer and charismatic commander, Dallaire encounters the shabby reality of a typical UN peacekeeping operation: under-funded, overbureaucratic, and cobbled together from military units from dozens of countries, each with a slightly different agenda. Meanwhile, the peace agreement between the rebels, led by the minority Tutsi ethnic group, and the French-supported government dominated by the Hutu majority group, turns out to rest on shaky ground. When an unknown group shoots down the Rwandan President’s plane, the storm breaks and a secret but long-planned genocidal campaign against the Tutsi minority begins with a night of terror in Kigali. A reporter (Deborah Unger) remains in-country and follows General Dellaire as he is forced to deal with far-away superiors and the studied indifference of the world’s great powers while trying to take decisive action to stop the genocide of over 800,000 innocent civilians.

Runtime: 112 minutes; 35mm color, aspect ratio 2.35 scope, sound Dolby Digital, primarily in English; some portions are in French with English subtitles, Digital exhibition formats: HD-D5 or Digital Betacam, aspect ratio is 16x9 anamorphic (2.35), sound: stereo, Rated R for some disturbing violent images and brief strong language
