FALLS AROUND HER
Director: Darlene Naponse
Cast: Tantoo Cardinal, Tina Keeper, Gail Maurice
Runtime: 98 min
Mary is a renowned Anishinaabe musician who comes home to Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation in northern Ontario, exhausted by many years on the road touring internationally with her band. She returns to the land to restore herself, but her past success makes her a commodity to some, and it can be tricky to hide from the demands of the outside world. Her sister Betty senses there may be more to Mary’s need for isolation and urges her to reconnect with family and old friends. As Mary gets out more and even starts dating, it seems as though new possibilities are on the horizon. However, the past has a way of catching up, and when Mary starts to hear disturbing noises around her cabin, she becomes paranoid that someone may be after her.
In spite of the trauma in Mary’s past, Naponse refuses a narrative of victimhood, and instead explores the multiple facets of resilience. Mary knows how to survive, but she also deserves to thrive. And that means gathering the ability to be open to the healing that comes from love, self-expression, family, community, and, especially, the land.
Writer-director Darlene Naponse brings a unique perspective to the screen that beautifully captures the nuance and rhythms of northern life on a small Anishinaabe First Nation. Acclaimed Métis actor Tantoo Cardinal embodies both strength and vulnerability in the leading role as Mary, a self-sufficient woman who knows that gut instincts should be trusted.
Falls Around Her is legendary Cree and Métis actor Tantoo Cardinal’s first lead role in a feature film — and she’s enthralling in it. – Samantha Edwards, NOW Magazine

Director: Nadine Labaki
Cast: Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw, Boluwatife Treasure Bankole
Runtime: 123 minute
Set against the backdrop of the slums of Lebanon, the film centres on Zain, approximately 12 years old — his parents don’t know his age — and already hardened from years of survival. Failed at nearly every turn by his family, Zain and his younger sister, Sahar, must contend with a variety of dangers, one of which is their parents. After they sell Sahar to try and make ends meet, Zain runs away, and he encounters other kindred spirits trying to maintain a sense of self in incredibly desperate circumstances. When Zain is imprisoned for stabbing someone, he launches a lawsuit against his parents for bringing him into such a grim world.
“It’s a deeply assured piece of direction, and though it only plays a few emotional notes, they are ones that won’t soon leave your memory.” – Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine/Vulture

Director: Tom Harper
Cast: Julie Walters, Jessie Buckley, Sophie Okonedo
Runtime: 101 minutes
Just released from prison, forced to wear an ankle monitor and keep curfew, she can’t return to her job as the house-band singer at Glasgow’s Grand Ole Opry. Sporting her white cowboy hat and white leather cowboy boots, Rose-Lynn lands a new job as a housekeeper for the lovely, and very posh, Susannah. After catching her singing on the job, Susannah’s kids quickly become Rose-Lynn’s biggest fans and Susannah her enthusiastic patron, determined to help her get to Nashville. But Rose-Lynn’s dreams come at a cost. Her mother, who knows all about abandoning dreams, has always done what she can to help her daughter realize hers, but she also wants her to take responsibility and act like the grown up that her kids need her to be.
A happy-sad drama of starstruck fever that lifts you up and sweeps you along, touching you down in a puddle of well-earned tears. – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

Featuring: Alex Honnold
Runtime: 97 minutes
Follow Alex Honnold as he becomes the first person to ever free solo climb Yosemite’s 3,000ft high El Capitan Wall. With no ropes or safety gear, he completed arguably the greatest feat in rock climbing history.
You don’t need to be a climbing enthusiast to marvel at the wonders of both humans and nature captured in extraordinary cinematography. For movie-going suspense, nothing can match the real-life daring in Free Solo.
“The classic tension between the sublime and the human spirit breaks down. Man, rock, camera: they’re old suspects, but here they seem made anew.” —Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic
