THE RED TURTLE

Best Animated Feature Oscar Nominee

A man, lost at sea, washes up on an island. Upon exploration, it proves to be uninhabited except for the occasional sea lion and a delightful platoon of curious sand crabs. Over time, the man builds a raft out of bamboo and once again braves the sea. But his craft is bumped by an unseen creature in the water and shatters. He tries a second time, with the same outcome; and a third, in which he discovers that the intransigent animal is an enormous red turtle that seems not to want him to leave the island.

The film that unfolds from these simple premises is spare, elegant, and profoundly moving, an evocative examination of the cycles of life, human and animal alike.

PG | | Animation, Fantasy

“A tale of uncommon beauty, at once singular and universal—a fable that recalls both ancient creation myths and Kipling’s “just so” stories. Even as it presents itself as a metaphor for life, The Red Turtle is also a straightforward depiction of it. Its title notwithstanding, it is a film almost bursting with humanity.”
– The Atlantic

King’s Film Society Presentation

MAUDIE

Academy Award nominees Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in the true story of Nova Scotian Maud Lewis, who overcame the physical challenge of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis to become one of Canada’s premier folk artists.

The FOUR screenings of Maudie are part of a weekend-long commemoration on the life and art of Maud Lewis. Click here for more info.

Spanning about 35 years, the film begins in the late 1930s in Nova Scotia as Maud Lewis (Sally Hawkins), who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, seeks to break free of her overprotective family, taking a job as a live-in maid for the cantankerous loner Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke), who sells fish around the community. At first, he doesn’t want her interfering with his insular, rural life, but soon a stubborn affection develops between them, leading to marriage as Maud begins to find her voice as a painter.

One day a summer resident comes calling. She’s a New Yorker, wears alluring clothing and talks like Katharine Hepburn. She sees something in Maudie’s paintings and commissions one. Suddenly Maudie’s pastime is recognized as having real value. People come from far and wide. Eventually her work will hang in the White House.
Nova Scotia-born cinematographer Guy Godfree fills Maudie with majestic images of maritime landscape and light, while Irish director Aisling Walsh focuses on character, drawing performances of emotional complexity and great physical detail from her leads.

 

PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, Romance

“Though set in the past, Maudie speaks to the present in many ways — this is, after all, a tale of a woman asserting herself as a generator of both art and commerce. But it is also a story of the power of creativity to transform a life and touch the soul.”                                           –TIFF

 

Tickets: $10 Adult, $9 with Film Buff Card, $8 Youth.

All prices include HST.

General admission seating.

*** Doors will open ONE HOUR before showtime.***

Listen to CBC Interview with Screenwriter Sherry White.

Special to Sunday’s screening:

All are invited to gather in the Lobby after the show for coffee and conversation about Everett and Maud.
