July’s Film Club newsletter is now up here.
While July is a bit of a slow month for new Canadian releases, Away from Her is still going strong. It’s Sarah Polley’s directorial debut about a woman suffering from Alheimer’s disease who forgets her husband, the love of her life. Bring the tissues.
If you’re in the Montreal area around July 12 – 22, you can catch some of Comedia, Just for Laughs’ comedy film festival. This year’s highlights include a showcase, the Best of Comedia, hosted by Marlon Wayans, and special screenings of Mr. Bean’s Holiday and Canada’s own Let’s All Hate Toronto.
You can check out a blog by the latter’s protagonist, Mr. Toronto (above), here.
