Sallie Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in this touching Canadian-Irish biopic of the Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis – often known as “the Canadian Grandma Moses.” Hawkins has been particularly praised for her portrayal of the quirky, chain-smoking, severely arthritic title character, while Hawke plays against type as her boorish, fish-peddler husband.
“What shines through is the beauty of the cinematography…and a remarkable performance by Hawkins, whose impossibly wide smile seems to bring the sun” (Seattle Times) Rated PG-13; 115 minutes.
Set just after WWI, this French-German production vividly depicts the aftermath of war, its effects on the families and loved ones who survive, and the strains between nationalism and human emotions. The fiancé of a lost German soldier discovers that a young Frenchman is leaving flowers on the grave of her betrothed. Surprises follow as do the challenges of loss and reconciliation.
“A fine bilingual cast, haunting period detail and a provocative approach to a twisting story carries the day” (Globe & Mail). In French & German w/English s/t. Rated PG-13; 113 minutes.
The writer-director Mike Birbiglia (“Sleepwalk With Me”) returns to the standup comedy world with this bittersweet look at work and careers in today’s improv clubs. A member of an NYC troupe gets cast on a hit TV show – great for him, but leaving his best friends behind.
Rated R; 92 minutes.
“A hilarious and honest look at the lives of professional funny people” (Rotten Tomatoes.com)
