THE TRIP TO SPAIN
Oct 10 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presentation


Following their culinary outings to England’s Lake District in The Trip and down the Italian coast in The Trip to Italy, Steve Coogan (Philomena) and Rob Brydon (Tristram Shandy) team up once more to indulge in Iberian epicurean delights, trade barbs, and compete to perfect the ultimate Michael Caine impression, in Michael Winterbottom’s much-anticipated The Trip to Spain.

 

After the success of Coogan’s travelogue and reviews of English and Italian restau­rants, The New York Times commissions a new piece; this time, he is sent to Spain with the ever-reliable Brydon in tow. Soaking in the culinary riches of the Basque region, which boasts several of the best reviewed restaurants in the world, and moving through the coun­try to the Mediterranean coast, Coogan and Brydon devour envy-inspiring meals, while reviving their iconic and devastatingly funny impressions of Michael Caine, Al Pacino, and Roger Moore (with a new and accomplished Mick Jagger joining the roster).

 

Between the meals, jokes, and meandering drives throughout the Spanish countryside, cracks begin to show in Coogan and Brydon’s optimistic veneer. Despite their insistence that they are at “the sweet spot” of their lives, the pair spends substantial amounts of time reminiscing about their younger selves and earlier films (Philomena is mentioned repeat­edly), while negotiating the difficult task of coming to terms with their older selves, and more settled family lives. Still crackling with the improvisational energy and vibrancy of the first two installments, The Trip to Spain provides a reliable mix of breathtaking vistas, indulgent meals, and Coogan and Brydon’s hilarious odd-couple comedy.

 

Directed by Michael Winterbottom

Featuring: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Rebecca Johnson, Claire Keelan

OBIT
Oct 24 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presentation

 

A fascinating and lively look at the inner-workings of the team responsible for The New York Times’ obituary section, Obit chronicles the ways in which life, death, and the written word intersect to create personal and public legacies that resonate long after our time is up.

Director Vanessa Gould presents the obit department as an entertaining and eccentric crew of writers and editors are charged with the daunting daily task of chronicling the life and legacy of complete strangers. With a primary focus on the details of life rather than death, the writers also wryly acknowledge that their profession doesn’t exactly make them popular at cocktail parties. However, as new assignments fall onto their desks, each writer carefully delves into the histories of politicians, celebrities, inventors, authors, and adventurers, gently detangling the complex minutiae of a lifetime of familial myths, newsworthy accomplishments, and amusing anecdotes.

 

Obit quietly meditates on a seemingly morbid subject that, more often than not, provides surprisingly life-affirming moments of humour, nostalgia, and humanity. Whether compiling the obituaries for public figures like Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, or telling the life story of the man responsible for Kennedy’s masterful televised debate against Nixon, the writers approach each assignment with equal parts gravitas and curiosity.

 

A look into the archives of “advance obits,”or obituaries that are prepared and continually edited for still-alive famous figures, may seem like a gloomy fact of the business, but it is also a testament to the department’s dedication to presenting accurate and timely historical records of personal legacies. Engaging, lively, and warmly funny, Obit proves to be an unexpectedly vibrant celebration of life.

 

Directed by Vanessa Gould
With: Bruce Weber, William McDonald, Margalit Fox

Documentary USA  1h 30m

 

 

 

“At The New York Times, the obituary beat is no career dead-end. Editor William McDonald gets to weigh the desires of writers like Bruce Weber and Paul Vitello, who seem often to fall in love with these people they’ll never meet. Those writers make for fun company here, however much they claim people avoid them at cocktail parties.”

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
Oct 28 @ 9:00 pm

DIG OUT YOUR COSTUMES, THE 1970s CULT CLASSIC IS HERE!!

Campy, brilliant and utterly bonkers, it’s no wonder this is a cult classic and a much loved favourite. The only way to watch this is to sing along as enthusiastically and loudly as possible and if you don’t wake up the neighbours and had a knock at the door from the police, you’ve failed.

It’s quite hard to describe the plot past “Brad and Janet’s car breaks down and they find themselves in a house” because that’s when all hell breaks loose. Singing, dancing, Meat Loaf and a man in very tight golden underwear is just a small part of the madness and it’s very, very fun.

 

It’s not a movie, it’s an EXPERIENCE. First time experiencing The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Click here for some tips!

BAR OPENS AT 8:00PM. 

All tickets $12. Reserve seating. Price includes HST.

THE HAPPIEST DAY IN THE LIFE OF OLLI MAKI
Nov 7 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presentation


Winner of the Un Certain Regard Prize at the Cannes Film Festival

Directed by Juho Kuosmanen

Finland/Germany/Sweden 2016

1h 31m

 

This lovely film from Finnish director Juho Kuosmanen is a gentle, shrewd, somehow mysterious love story, based on real life, beautifully photographed in luminous black-and-white and drawing inspiration from Scorsese and Truffaut. It is inspired by the Finnish boxer Olli Mäki, who electrified Finland’s boxing fans in 1962 by getting a shot at the world featherweight title, fighting on home turf against visiting American star Davey Moore.

 

Jarkko Lahti plays the intense, wiry Olli, who finds that as the big fight approaches, he has fallen in love with a beautiful schoolteacher, Raija (Oona Airola) – to the horror of his tightly wound trainer and manager, Elis, played by Eero Milonoff. Elis’s own marriage appears to be crumbling, and he is aghast, for complex reasons, at the distractions of love, which might mess with Olli’s focus. Inside of the ring, it’s Finland vs. the USA, but outside, boxing and romance become unlikely adversaries vying for Olli’s attention.

 

“A lyrical sense of bittersweet acceptance permeates freshman director Juho Kuosmanen’s marvelous sports biopic from its very first, perfectly composed frame.” –  Variety 

 

“Kuosmanen’s impeccable, buoyant first feature upends all the conventions of the fight film genre.” –  NOW Toronto
