  • Showtime: 7pm

    Canadian director Xavier Dolan delivers again with Mommy, which shared the 2014 Cannes Jury Prize, with Jean-Luc Godard. Although his movies tend to focus on difficult topics, the realistic and relatable approach make his films compelling and engrossing. It has also been selected as the Canadian entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards.

     

     

    Mommy tells the story of Diane Després and her son, Steve. As a widowed mother who has to raise her violent son while working several jobs, an across-the-way neighbour, Kyla, takes an interest in Steve and helps him overcome his ongoing troubles.

    Maps to the Stars

  • Dec 03, 2014 until Dec 04, 2014
  • Showtime: 7pm

    David Cronenberg’s latest film, Maps to the Stars, won Julianne Moore the 2014 Cannes Festival Best Actress award. The satirical look at Hollywood examines the darkness that penetrates and permeates one of the world’s most “glamorous” industries.

    With a strong cast including Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Robert Pattinson, the plot’s overlying layers intersect between Moore’s Havana Segrand, her PA Agatha (Wasikowska), limo driver Jerome (Pattinson) and TV psychologist Dr. Weiss (Cusack).
