PUZZLE – Film Society Season Launch
Sep 4 @ 7:30 pm

Producer Marc Turtletaub (Loving; Little Miss Sunshine) makes his directorial debut with Puzzle, a gently humanist story of an unassuming housewife who comes to recognize her unspoken hopes and dreams through the unlikely avenue of competitive jigsaw-puzzling. Agnes (Kelly Macdonald, Goodbye Christopher Robin) lives a quiet, monotonous life waiting hand-and-foot on her husband, Louie (David Denman, Logan, Lucky), and her two adult sons. After an evening of birthday celebrations — she cleans, cooks, and prepares the house for what turns out to be her own party — she notices a gift that strikes her interest: a jigsaw puzzle of a world map. Finishing the puzzle in record time, Agnes soon finds herself answering a “partner wanted” advertisement from puzzle champion Robert (Lunchbox star Irrfan Khan). As Agnes learns more about her gift at assembling the increasingly difficult puzzles Robert challenges her with, she also begins to give voice to her long-dormant desires. An adaptation of the 2009 Berlin Film Festival breakout hit of the same name from Argentina, Puzzle provides a sweet-natured glimpse into the complex interiority of what appears to be an entirely unremarkable life. Macdonald delivers a striking performance as Agnes, hinting at a deep longing for expression hidden beneath a lifetime of restraint. Puzzle asks us to consider what we might discover about ourselves if we allow that first spark of curiosity to ignite passion, courage, and a little stubborn determination.

DAVID MYLES – Golf Tee-up Concert
Sep 7 @ 7:30 pm

We are excited to welcome the wonderful DAVID MYLES back to King’s Theatre to kick off the 10th Annual Tournament of King’s!

THANKS TO OUR OFFICIAL CONCERT SPONSOR JUST US

Nattily dressed in a suit and tie, wearing his trademark specs, he looks like Buddy Holly transposed to an after-hours supper club. But Myles’s music conveys a populist appeal that leaves no one lacking. – No Depression

Rock ’n’ roll’s diverse, electrifying roots dig deep into David Myles’ tenth album, Real Love. You can hear them in the old-school Johnny Cash shuffle and lightning-in-a-bottle twang of “Night And Day.” They pull you by the hand and dance slowly to the swingy drums and ‘50s-era, Roy Orbison croon of “Easy.” With the rousing orchestral thrill of “Night After Night,” they sprawl out into simmering soul as Myles seethes at a lover who’s been running around with another. Over Real Love’s 13 tracks, written as razor-sharp as Myles’ signature suits, those roots grow into a spectacular family tree of American musical tradition—with all its blood, sweat, and tears—that’s as endlessly entertaining as it is riveting.

LEAVE NO TRACE
Sep 18 @ 7:30 pm

Leave No Trace is an intimate and complex coming-of-age story following a father and daughter struggling to maintain their unconventional lifestyle, set against the rugged terrain of the Pacific Northwest. Will (Ben Foster, Hell or High Water; Kill Your Darlings) is a PTSD-inflicted veteran and widower living off the grid with his daughter, Tom (Thomasin McKenzie, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), in a public park near Portland. When Tom makes a mistake that alerts the authorities to their existence, the family is removed from the park and placed in a home by state officials. Immersed in a world she has never experienced, Tom is drawn to the friendships, community, and comforts of her new surroundings. Meanwhile, Will is confronted with the triggers of the modern world.

Leave No Trace is a surprisingly endearing portrait of a father and daughter forced to contemplate whether family survival means sticking together or letting go. The lush Oregon landscape expertly contrasts the tension-filled narrative, with Foster delivering one of his most memorable performances to date — though it’s McKenzie who truly makes her mark.

“Leave No Trace is one of the best films of 2018 and promises to make a star of Thomasin McKenzie.” — The Atlantic

VAN GOGH: Of Wheat Fields & Clouded Skies
Sep 22 @ 7:00 pm

Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies Masterpieces from the Kröller-Müller Museum

A new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included.

The story unfolds of a woman who, in Van Gogh’s spiritual torment could recognize her own, showing priceless artistic treasures and the rare, naturalistic and architectural beauty of the Kröller-Müller Museum set in the vast De Hoge Weluge park, as well as visual extracts of the Milanese, Florentine, Roman and Palladian Renaissance. It tells the tormented, existential parable of a painter, seen through passages from his brother Theo’s letters, which set the pace of the exhibition, and it shows images of the places he lived and stayed in, from Paris to Provence.

The opportunity to tell the story of this collection and of the burning passion for art that led to it, is an outstanding exhibition on Van Gogh. ‘Amid wheat fields and clouded skies’ at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helene’s heritage.
This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Gogh’s art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive, ‘au premier coup’ canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings, can already be found.

JIM CUDDY TRIO
Sep 25 @ 7:30 pm

For over 35 years, Jim Cuddy has written songs that have become indelible in the soundtrack of Canadian lives.  With the release of his fourth solo album, Constellation, he adds ten songs to that extraordinary songbook.

As one of the founding members and creative forces behind Blue Rodeo, Cuddy has received nearly every accolade Canada can bestow upon a musician, from the Order of Canada and induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, to countless JUNO Awards and a Star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. Behind it all, is a simple devotion to his craft as a songwriter, which remains Cuddy’s tireless pursuit after more than three decades.

“I’ve always found fascination in the smallest details of human behavior,” says Cuddy of his songwriting. “It has been something that I look at and remember, whether it is the details of an exchange that I witnessed or an exchange that I have.  Of course, as you get older there are bigger things that happen in your life that you realize you’ll never totally understand.  There never seems to be a loss of things to write about.”

Constellation was recorded during the summer and fall of 2017 at Blue Rodeo’s East-end Toronto headquarters, The Woodshed. As is the case with all great songwriters, Cuddy’s music has taken on deeper meaning with the passage of time, no small feat considering he has penned some of the most memorable songs in our nation’s canon.  What comes across on Constellation is less of a separation between the bitter and the sweet, as is sometimes evident with Blue Rodeo, but rather an emotional honesty that resonates across the album. On the album’s many memorable moments, such as “While I Was Waiting,” “Lonely When You Leave” and “Cold Cold Wind”, Cuddy’s unmistakable personality shines through, a testament to how his sound has always resisted attempts to be categorized.  This honesty shines through on the title track, “Constellations”.

“’Constellations’ is about a friend of mine who passed away last year.  Some friends and I took him up to my farm and we sort of had our last supper. We had a riotous time, we drank a lot of wine, and we had a lot of laughs, and it was all tempered with the fact that we knew that our friend was not going to survive this illness.

I think all the songs on the album were tempered by that because there’s something very sobering about losing a friend, especially losing a friend that’s younger, because it makes you tally up mortality a bit.  What it made me do on this record is write some more definitive truths for myself. Write things that had wounded me. Write things that I loved and held onto and write about things I had lost.”

Loss is certainly the theme of the beautiful ballad “You Be The Leaver” which takes on the shock of sudden separation in a relationship, though not necessarily a romantic relationship. “I think in everyone’s life there are relationships that become troubled, and either you survive or you don’t.  There are all kinds of relationships that have a great impact on your life, not just the romantic ones.”

Cuddy’s creative drive led him, in 1998, to launch a solo career in conjunction with Blue Rodeo.  With Constellation, he continues to find new ways to balance personal reflection and plainspoken storytelling, remaining both intimate and accessible. The new album also reunites him with his long-time band featuring stalwart Blue Rodeo bassist Bazil Donovan, guitarist Colin Cripps, violinist Anne Lindsay, keyboardist Steve O’Connor and drummer Joel Anderson, all of whom, along with and guest musicians Oh Susanna and Jim Bowskill help make this one of Cuddy’s most musically diverse albums to date.

Indeed, one of the album’s musical highlights is Beggar’s Banquet-influenced “Cold Cold Wind,” a traditional country styled track that ends in a flash and fury.

“By the time I finished the song, I thought you know what, this needs to have some explosive life at the end.  And so I just started playing that little lick, and realized we also had two extraordinary guitar players in the room, with Jimmy Bowskill and Colin Cripps, and thought it would be fun to have a guitar gunslinger moment at the end. You need to have a bit of punctuation on the meaning of the song. Plus it was an opportunity for those two guys to inspire each other and play off each other.”

Yet, the top shelf playing never overshadows Cuddy’s writing, and the symbiotic relationship between the two is a further tribute to the distinctive Toronto roots rock sound that Blue Rodeo all but defined. As Cuddy explains, “For me, one of the joys in making a record happens when I get past the point of worrying about all the things I may or may not have done wrong, and I can sit back and really absorb and appreciate what everyone else’s contribution. There were so many moments like that on this record, where parts were laid down that really accentuated the emotional impact of a particular song. You only get that with a certain caliber of musician, and I’m fortunate to have them in both bands I’m in.”

That sense of trust is evident in Cuddy’s audience as well, especially those who have been along for the ride from the beginning. His keen ear for conveying the highs and lows inherent to all long-term relationships has helped listeners grow along with him.

“We’ve all had to deal with our own bumps and bruises and scarring along the way, and part of this new record is facing that reality,” he says. “But in other ways Constellation is a celebration of coming through it all and feeling grateful for these long-term relationships that have sustained us throughout our lives.”

 

Colin Cripps is a Canadian guitarist and member of Blue Rodeo and the Jim Cuddy Band.
