november 7, 2011Dean Spanley

Clayoquot Theatre
Monday, November 7, 2011 • 8 pm
(2009, UK/NZ, Com/Dr, 99 min, Not Rated)
Directed by Toa Fraser

Multiple Oscar nominee Peter O'Toole adds yet another offbeat role to his long resume with the mystical comedy-drama Dean Spanley. O'Toole plays Horatio Fisk, a cantankerous septuagenarian living out his final days at the turn of the 20th Century. Fisk has little time for his son, but when the pair meets the unusual Dean Spanley, they share a wine known as the “Imperial Tokay”. Under the influence, Spanley brings forth reminiscences of a prior life lived out as a canine - and his recollections hold a rather bizarre connection to Horatio's familial past.

november 14, 2011The Tree of Life

Clayoquot Theatre
Monday, November 14, 2011 • 8 pm
(2010, US, Dra/Fant, 139 minutes, Rated G)
Directed by Terrence Malick

From the acclaimed director of Badlands, and Days of Heaven, The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a Midwest family in the 1950’s. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years (played by Sean Penn) as he tries to reconcile the complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the meaning of life, and questioning the existence of faith.

The film won the highest prize at Cannes this year: the Palme d’Or.

november 21, 2011Forkes over Knives

Clayoquot Theatre
Monday, November 21, 2011 • 8 pm
(2011, US, Doc, 96 min, G)
Directed by Lee Fulkerson

Join the conversation that’s changing the way [we] eat.
This illuminating documentary serves as a natural successor to Food, Inc. in taking a critical look at the consequences of Western dietary habits. While some might view the lower-budget Forks over Knives as a long-form commercial for veganism, Fulkerson's evidence supporting the benefits of a plant-based diet is too compelling to dismiss (and he never claims that a small piece of cheese ever killed anyone). An opening title cautions that the film should not serve as a substitute for medical advice, but it certainly provides helpful information for anyone concerned about their health.

november 28, 2011Incendies

Clayoquot Theatre
Monday, November 21, 2011 • 8 pm
(2010, Can, Drama, 130 min, Rated PG)

A mother's last wishes send twins Jeanne and Simon on a journey to Lebanon in search of their tangled roots. Adapted from Wajdi Mouawad's acclaimed stageplay, Incendies tells the powerful and moving tale of two young adults' voyage to the core of deep-rooted hatred, never-ending wars and enduring love.

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2011 Academy Awards.

“A real masterwork... A devastatingly powerful film.” - Brendan Kelly, The Gazette

december 5, 2011Beginners

Clayoquot Theatre
Monday, December 5, 2011 • 8 pm
(2011, US, Comedy/ Drama, 103 min, Rated PG)
Directed by Mike Mills

When it comes to relationships, we’re all beginners.
Oliver (Ewan McGregor) meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anna only months after his father Hal (Christopher Plummer) has passed away. This new love floods Oliver with memories of his father who — following 44 years of marriage — came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized and tumultuous gay life. Now Oliver endeavours to love Anna with all the bravery, humour, and hope that his father taught him. At once deeply personal and universal, Beginners was inspired by Mike Mills’ own father and is meant in turn to inspire everyone weighing their chances and choices in life and love.

“Funny, touching and altogether extraordinary!” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

december 12, 2011The Help

Clayoquot Theatre
Monday, December 12, 2011 • 8 pm
(2011, US, Drama, 146 min, PG)
Directed by Tate Taylor

Change begins with a whisper.

The #1 New York Times bestseller by Kathryn Stockett comes to vivid life through the powerful performances of a phenomenal ensemble cast. Led by Emma Stone and Viola Davis (Best Supporting Actress, Doubt, 2008), The Help is an inspirational, courageous and empowering story about very different, extraordinary women in the 1960s South who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project — one that breaks society’s rules and puts them all at risk. Filled with poignancy, humour and hope The Help is a timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.
