Director: Miranda de Pencier
Cast: Tantoo Cardinal, Ben Schnetzer, Will Sasso, Booboo Stewart
Runtime: 107 minutes
Based on a true story, The Grizzlies is about the determination and resilience of a group of Inuit youth in a small Arctic community.
In 1998, first-time teacher Russ Sheppard moves north for a job at a local school in Kugluktuk, a town struggling with one of the highest suicide rates in North America. With no previous experience or knowledge of life in the north, Russ is shocked and overwhelmed by the numerous social issues facing the youth, all as a result of the massive legacy of colonization on their families and communities.
Russ introduces a lacrosse program in the school. Although the program is at first met with skepticism and resistance, Russ’ commitment begins to win the trust of the students, and together they form the Grizzlies lacrosse team. Through the sport, the youth find a vital outlet for their emotions, and the team creates a sense of pride and purpose in themselves and their community.

Runtime: 121 minutes
OSCAR NOMINATED FOR BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Osamu, his wife, Nobuyo, 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, they come across Yuri, 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’s 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.
“Another charming, funny and very affecting example of Kore-eda’s special brand of tough-but-tender humanism.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

LEAVE NO TRACE
Cast: Ben Foster, Dale Dickey, Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie
Runtime: 109 minutes
Leave No Trace is the latest haunting film from Debra Granik, a moody, mysterious, and mesmerizing exploration of an unexpected existence onthe edge. A teenage girl, Tom, and her veteran father Will have lived undetected for years in Forest Park, a vast woods on the edge of Portland, Oregon. A chance encounter leads to their discovery and removal from the park and into the charge of a social services agency. They try to adapt to their new surroundings, until a sudden decision sets them on a perilous journey into the wilderness seeking complete independence and forcing them to confront their conflicting desire to be part of a community and fierce need to live apart.
“Once again, Granik introduces us to a kind of family that cinema rarely captures believably, and she does so with a style that’s both lyrical and realistic at the same time, anchored by a pair of unforgettable performances.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

STAN & OLLIE
Director: Jon S. Baird
Cast: John C. Reilly, Shirley Henderson, Stephanie Hyam
Runtime: 97 min
The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan and Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille and Ida – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
“Stan & Ollie is a fitting tribute to Laurel & Hardy. It is a wonderful small film about bygone greats. Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly give life to stars that passed away more than fifty years ago” – Julian Roman, MovieWeb

AT ETERNITY’S GATE
Cast: Willem Dafoe, Rupert Friend, Oscar Isaac
Runtime: 110 minutes
Language: French, English
A look at the life of painter Vincent van Gogh during the time he lived in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, France. Led by mesmerizing work from Willem Dafoe in the central role, At Eternity’s Gate intriguingly imagines Vincent Van Gogh’s troubled final days.
There have been many films about Vincent Van Gough, but none as extraordinary as Julian Schnabel’s version, starring Willem Dafoe in a monumental, career-best performance that lets us feel we’re living Van Gough’s life and not just watching it. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES
Director: Alison Reid
With: Fred Bercovitch, Lisa Clifton-Bumpass, Anne Innis Dagg
Runtime: 83 minutes
In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, in fact, before anyone, man or woman had made such a trip, 23-year old Canadian biologist, Anne Innis Dagg, made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to become the first person in the world to study animal behavior in the wild on that continent. When she returned home a year later armed with ground-breaking research, the insurmountable barriers she faced as a female scientist proved much harder to overcome.
Dr. Anne Innis Dagg re-traces the steps of her groundbreaking 1956 journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild – and discovers a startling contrast between the world of giraffes she once knew and the one it has become. Weaving through the past and present, her harrowing journey gives us an intimate look into the factors that destroyed her career and the forces that brought her back.
Alison Reid deserves high praise for fine storytelling, combining ecology and social-justice issues while focusing on a woman ahead of her times, whose ambitions were thwarted by institutional sexism. – Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star
