A QUIET PASSION
Director: Terence Davies
Cast: Catherine Bailey, Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Keith Carradine
Runtime: 125 minutes
Distributor: Pacific Northwest Pictures
Unconventional, yet iconic – Emily Dickinson was truly a woman before her time. Deeply tormented by gender disparities and her own feelings of insecurity, the American poet fought eternally to find her place in life, withdrawing entirely from social life after a crisis of faith. Through her beautiful, poetic work, Emily narrates her adult life in Massachusetts, taking the audience on an emotional journey. Nixon’s intoxicating performance captures Dickinson’s fierce optimism and faith in this lyrical film, tied together by master filmmaker Terence Davies.

Eight-year-old Wes has always felt a little bit out of place. After a family tragedy, Wes comes to realize that he’s not truly a young American boy – he’s supposed to be a Mongolian goat herder, and was born in the wrong place. Enlisting the help of an Indian filmmaker and a crowdfunding campaign, they set off to the steppes of Asia with Wes’ family in tow. Against all odds, trekking across the other side of the world might be just what they need in order to be close together again.

Director: Guy Maddin
Cast: Darcy Fehr, Ann Savage, Louis Negin, Amy Stewart, Brendan Cade, Wesley Cade
Runtime: 80 Minutes
Iconoclastic filmmaker Guy Maddin’s freewheeling, genre-bending tradition has made him one of Canada’s most consistently intriguing and internationally respected artists. My Winnipeg, his 2007 documentary (or “docu-fantasia,” as he describes it) focuses on his hometown, with equal parts mystical rumination and personal history, city chronicle, and deranged post-Freudian proletarian fantasy. Framed as a goodbye letter, it blends local myth with childhood trauma, somehow feeling utterly if perversely logical. Maddin splits the film into three different strands. As the film proceeds and the local and personal stories pile up, My Winnipeg morphs into a meditation on belief and truth, memory and myth. In one of the more naked moments in the film, Maddin addresses the issue of belief and faith; he believes these things, so why shouldn’t we? A deliriously layered provocation, My Winnipeg is outrageous, informative, and wildly entertaining.

A UNITED KINGDOM – To Be Confirmed
Director: Amma Asante
Cast: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike
Runtime: 105 minutes
A United Kingdom is based on extraordinary true events. In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighboring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana.
