IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK
Mar 26 @ 7:30 pm

 For the follow-up to his Oscar-winning hit and Film Circuit favourite Moonlight, Barry Jenkins returns with this moving period piece about a pregnant woman fighting to prove her fiancé’s innocence after he is wrongfully jailed for rape. Based on James Baldwin’s 1974 novel of the same name, If Beale Street Could Talk marks the first English-language film adaptation of the legendary US writer and activist’s work.

Set in the early 1970s in the predominantly Latin American community of East Harlem, the film follows Tish (Kiki Layne), a 19-year-old woman who falls in love with Fonny (Stephan James), a young sculptor. Their brief idyll is broken when Fonny is suddenly arrested, placed in a police lineup—in which he is the only Black man—and framed for the rape of a local woman. Tish, who has just discovered she is pregnant, and her family must fight to prove Fonny’s innocence. With this thought-provoking and still-timely story, Jenkins manages to preserve both the politics and the romantic spirit of Baldwin’s celebration of the power of love and hope in times of despair.

One of the most highly anticipated films of the year, If Beale Street Could Talk reunites writer-director Jenkins with Moonlight’s powerhouse production team for a stunning and honest story of an American couple determined to fight for love, freedom and justice in their own society.

  • Directed by Barry Jenkins
  • Starring Kiki Layne, Stephan James, Regina King, and Colman Domingo
  • USA · English
  • Rated PG · 1h 50m

 

“Jenkins captures the humor, verve, and considerable complexity of the prose.” – The Playlist

“In some ways Beale feels less like a movie than a well-staged, meticulously shot play; a period piece that floats beyond its specific time and place and into the realm of allegory.” – Entertainment Weekly

“It’s a film with love at its root, both familial and romantic, and Jenkins fills so much of it with a radiating warmth.” –The Guardian

SHOPLIFTERS
Apr 9 @ 7:30 pm
SHOPLIFTERS

Hirokazu Kore-eda (After the Storm; Our Little Sister; Like Father, Like Son) continues to tell stories of complicated familial relationships in his latest feature, Shoplifters. Winner of the 2018 Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, the film explores the ways in which the comfort and security of a loving family can sometimes overshadow morally questionable behaviour.

Osamu (Lily Franky), his wife, Nobuyo (Sakura Andô), and their family are struggling to live in Tokyo off pension money and the income from their low-paying jobs. As a result, they turn to shoplifting as a means of survival. One day, when Osamu is shoplifting with his son Shota (Jyo Kairi), they come across Yuri (Miyu Sasaki), a young girl who appears to be homeless. They bring her home for dinner and, soon after discovering signs of abuse, decide to take her in as one of their own, eventually training her in the “family business.” When the family hears that Yuri’s abusive parents are looking for her, they cut her hair and rename her Rin to keep her safe.

While it is clear the family will go to almost any lengths to gain financial stability, Rin’s new family provides her with a loving, supportive, and nurturing environment. Shoplifters asks the audience to consider which life is more desirable: one full of love and support but that is tied to unethical and illegal actions, or a life that is “approved” but ultimately empty.

  • Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda
  • Starring Lily Franky, Sakura Andô, Jyo Kairi, and Miyu Sasaki
  • Japan · Japanese w/ subtiles
  • Rated 14A · 2h 1m

 

“Shoplifters is compassionate, socially conscious filmmaking with a piercing intelligence that is pure Kore-eda. This is a film that steals in and snatches your heart.” –The Telegraph

“A tender ensemble piece whose skillful performances dovetail into a perfectly symphonic whole, Shoplifters is a work of such emotional delicacy and formal modesty that you’re barely prepared when the full force of what it’s doing suddenly knocks you sideways.”  Los Angeles Times

“Kore-Eda is working up to something else, steering the story he’s built so carefully toward an utterly unexpected detour. As much of what we think we know unravels, the film becomes not just an enjoyable, intermittently poignant portrait of imperfect people but a profound meditation on the meaning of family.”  –Entertainment Weekly

BEAUTIFUL BOY
Apr 30 @ 7:30 pm

Following his breakoutrole in Call Me By Your Name, Academy Award/Golden Globe nominee Timothy Chalamet turns in another dazzling performance in Beautiful Boy.

Playing a young man raging and suffering through drug addiction, he confirms his status as one of the very best actors of his generation. He is matched every step of the way in this moving drama by Steve Carell, who continues to build on his comic achievements with powerhouse dramatic turns in Foxcatcher, The Big Short, and most definitely here. David Sheff (Carell) is a kind, loving, middle-class dad. He and his wife, Vicki (Amy Ryan), seem to have done everything right for their family. So when son Nic (Chalamet) gets addicted to methamphetamine, David can’t believe it, can’t stop it, and can’t help but risk everything to try to get his son back. As he grapples with Nic’s lies, betrayals, and constant flirtations with death, the film reminds us of who Nic used to be – a sweet, thoughtful, beautiful boy.

Adapting the bestselling books that David Sheff and Nic Sheff wrote about their experiences, Belgian director Felix van Groeningen brings both realism and poetry to a tragically timely story. As the Sheffs confront the intractable, unpredictable beast of addiction, they must at the same time confront the fact that Nic’s pain might also be his choice. Beautiful Boy doesn’t shy away from the harsh reality of this family’s struggle, but frames it with a surprising amount of life, love, and hope.

Directed by Felix van Groeningen

Starring Steve Carell, Timothy Chalamet, Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan
“Beautiful Boy could hit home for many families. Carell provides strong ballast in a thankless role as a father bewildered by the incremental loss of his beloved son to addiction. Chalamet is elusively liquid in the role of a child who sabotages his life without ever really being able to express why.”

SHARKWATER: EXTINCTION
May 10 @ 7:30 pm
Late filmmaker and conservationist Rob Stewart’s last documentary is a thrilling exposé on the illegal shark-fin industry and a rousing call to save an imperiled animal from the edge of extinction.

Sharkwater Extinction is a work of galvanizing activism rendered with heart and soul, and the final film from Rob Stewart, the award-winning Toronto documentarian, photographer, and conservationist.

Building on the research, passion, and sometimes daredevil first-person investigative work of 2006’s Sharkwater, Sharkwater Extinction updates and expands on the fight by Stewart and others to halt the hunting of sharks, which are often killed just for their fins. Since the release of Sharkwater and the growing awareness it helped foster, shark finning has been banned in most of the world. Yet these magnificent creatures — one of the world’s oldest and most important predators — are in more danger than ever, due to a thriving pirate industry, legal loopholes, and widespread corruption. Over 100 million sharks (yes, you read that right) are killed every year. The world’s shark population has decreased by 90 percent in the last 30 years. An entire species — and a cornerstone of our ecosystem — hangs in the balance.

Completed by the production team after Stewart died while making the film in January of 2017, Sharkwater Extinction takes us to Costa Rica, Cape Verde, the Bahamas, Panama, and the US to explore the myriad ways sharks continue to be placed in peril.

The film’s gorgeous imagery lures you in, while its nerve-wracking scenes of Stewart risking his life to expose hunters keeps you riveted. But the beauty of this film lies in Stewart’s enduring sense of wonder. He said he made these films to make people fall in love with sharks, and that he did. Stewart will be greatly missed.
