This Magazine’s May Film Club Newsletter is now up here.
May highlights include Sarah Polley’s directorial debut with Away From Her, based on an Alice Munro short story and starring Gordon Pinsent and Julie Christie.
Civic Duty also opens next month. It’s about a man who becomes paranoid about terrorism after watching too much — gasp! — cable news.
May will be a busy month for film festivals, including the Toronto Jewish Film Festival; Inside Out Toronto Lesbian & Gay Film and Video Festival; and the Yorkton Short Film Festival. The latter takes place in scenic Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
