COLETTE
Nov 20 @ 7:30 pm

Based on the life of Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, the film follows the writer through her marriage to Henry Gauthier-Villars, who whisks her away from her quiet and humble life in the countryside to live in the bustling and lively Paris. Henry, better known as “Willy,” is a successful Parisian writer who, while relying on an army of ghostwriters to produce his work, uses his time to engage in other self-indulgent activities — including numerous affairs with other women. He soon enlists his wife as one of his ghostwriters. He initially dismisses her contributions, but soon decides to re-work and publish Colette’s writing under his own name in order to save their family from financial ruin. Throughout their tumultuous marriage, Colette remains honest, consulting with Willy about her confusion over her newly discovered attraction to other women. While she seeks permission for her explorations, Willy does not offer the same courtesy, consistently betraying Colette’s trust and continuing to exploit her talents in order to publish her wildly successful work as his own. As their marriage begins to deteriorate, Colette finds a place for herself within her writing and begins to explore her creativity through a variety of artistic avenues. Keira Knightley quietly simmers as Colette, a trailblazing figure committed to breaking through stereotypes and conventions.

We know there are no more chances. It is not going away and today is the time to get it right in dealing with the climate crisis. Our world will live with it for the rest of our history, just as we have lived with the twentieth century legacy of our nuclear war. Our shared duty now, as one people, is to protect and repair our Earth, even as we prepare ourselves for its future unknown.

The film Climate Change and the Human Prospect documents the vision created at the Climate Change and the Human Prospect: A Thinkers Retreat held at the Thinkers Lodge in Pugwash, Nova Scotia.

In the compelling setting of the Thinkers Lodge where scientists and scholars from all over the world have stayed and tackled the world’s most pressing issues through the power of dialogue, Climate Change and the Human Prospect captures the thoughts, emotions and ideas of these Thinkers – scientists, economists, municipal councillors, planners, artists, community activists, First Nations and Eastern wisdom representatives and others – as they articulate global warming’s cascading impact on small, rural and coastal communities and focus on actionable, locally-oriented and forward-motion climate change plans.

THE WIFE
Dec 4 @ 7:30 pm

Jonathan Pryce, Glenn Close, and Christian Slater star in Björn Runge’s adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s bestselling novel about Joan Castleman (Close), who begins to re-evaluate her marriage to her author husband, Joe (Pryce), on the eve of his Nobel Prize presentation, and starts to grapple with her own long-dormant literary aspirations. An incisive study of celebrity, marriage, and the creative process — as well as a showcase for the talents of acclaimed actors Close and Pryce — The Wife explodes the old notion that behind every great man stands a great woman. Joe Castleman is being given the Nobel Prize for Literature, and he and wife Joan couldn’t be happier. But from the moment the couple arrives in Stockholm, tensions rise. A nosy, insistent would-be biographer (Slater) is loitering in the hotel lobby, an attractive young photographer opens old wounds regarding past indiscretions, and Joe and Joan’s son David (Max Irons), eternally irked at living in his father’s shadow, sulks through the celebrations.

The Wife is a procession of perfectly pitched scenes from a seemingly perfect marriage. Runge calibrates each for maximum impact, focusing on unspoken agreements and long-simmering resentments. His greatest allies in the endeavour are, of course, his stars. Pryce exudes pathos as a literary icon still suffering from insecurities, while Close smoulders in an intricately textured, quietly devastating performance.

About the Nutcracker

Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. As midnight strikes, she creeps downstairs to find a magical adventure awaiting her and her Nutcracker.

The magician Drosselmeyer transforms the drawing room for a battle between mice and toy soldiers. During the battle, Clara saves the Nutcracker’s life – so breaking a magical spell that turned him from a boy to a toy – and the Mouse King is defeated. In celebration, Drosselmeyer sweeps Clara and the Nutcracker off to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and take part in a wonderful display of dances. The next morning, Clara’s adventures seem to have been more than just a dream.
