Director: Asghar Farhadi

Year: 2016 Runtime: 125 minutes
Language: Persian with English subtitles

A sudden eruption of violence creates an atmosphere of simmering tension between a husband and wife in this work of slow-burning suspense from Academy Award-winning Iranian master Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, The Past). Feeling vengeful and confused, Emad plays detective, while rattled Rana gives him mysteriously mixed signals. Meanwhile, the two are performing as Willy and Linda Loman in an amateur production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, and their onstage roles begin to resonate with their fractured lives in beguiling ways. Much of the director's singular talent can be found in the structuring of his scripts, which draw us in, turn the screws, and leave us breathless.

“ Another finely cut gem of neorealist suspense”, Owen Gleiberman , Variety

Director: Aisling Walsh
Cast: Sally Hawkins, Ethan Hawke
Year: 2016 Runtime: 115 minutes
Language: English

Constrained by the effects of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, the Nova Scotian Maud Dowling is determined to prove her independence to herself and her overprotective family. She answers an ad for a live-in housekeeper for the reclusive Everett Lewis, but her artistic skills quickly eclipse her domestic duties. Director Aisling Walsh brilliantly captures Maud’s growth into one of Canada’s most celebrated folk artists. Touching, funny and wonderfully acted by its two remarkable leads, Maudie is an inspirational, based-on-fact tale of a young artist whose talent and determination allowed her to surmount the obstacles in her way, and an unlikely love story of two lonely souls who find their place in the world together.

“Sally Hawkins delivers an unforgettable performance as Nova Scotian folk artist Maud Lewis in this gently flowing biopic set in the 1930s.” Craig Tekeuchi, Georgia Straight, Vancouver
