5 Things to Watch on (Canadian) Netflix Right Now:

 

Here's a few gems we've either stumbled across or revisited recently, and seeing as no one told us to watch them or not, we figured we would officially recommend these 5 non-obvious choices for your casual viewing. Enjoy.

 

5. Killing Them Softly

 

We had seen this one up there for a while, and can promise that it is as suspenseful as it is brutal.  Poor Marky.

 

 

4. One Week

 

Canadian gem Joshua Jackson goes on both a literal and a spiritual journey across Canada and discovers a whole lot.  Plus, there's lots of cameos from some of our favorites.

 

 

3. No No: A Dockumentary

 

The much hyped documentary about Pittsburg Pirates pitcher Dock Ellis.  This story takes you there and back again and will blow your mind, especially considering so many people now haven't even heard of him.

 

 

2. Take Shelter

 

A twisted and suspenseful thriller that features two of our favorites, Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon.  Truly a must see.

 

 

1. The Station Agent

 

Three folks become unlikely friends in a remote town despite the odds being against them.  Incredible performances from everyone in this one.

Hot Docs Preview: On Her Own


Morgan Schmidt-Feng's 2015 film "On Her Own" is one of the many acclaimed films in this year's Hot Docs Film Festival.  It takes a good long look at the lives of Nancy Prebilich and her family.  The farm has been in the Prebilich family for 5 generations and with the sudden death of both parents, keeping it that way becomes a monumental challenge.  When the level of dedication to the work necessary becomes an issue, this stakes begin to rise and within their challenges we see those faced by farmers across North America.


"On Her Own" plays tonight at the ROM Cinema at 7 pm, at the TIFF Light Box on April 29th at 4:30 pm, and at the Scotia Bank Theatre on May 1 at 9:15 pm.  Tickets are available here.

See Ned Rifle this weekend at the Royal Cinema!

This weekend is your chance to catch Hal Hartley's widely acclaimed film "Ned Rifle".  It's the third chapter of the trilogy that began with "Henry Fool" in 1997 and includes "Fay Grim" from 2006.  The film stars Aubrey Plaza, Liam Aiken, Parker Posey, Robert John Burke, Martin Donovan, James Urbaniak, and Bill Sage.  It becomes a loving portrait of the son of the characters of his previous films, rather than focusing on them.  The tale follows the young, serious, and well mannered Ned on his quest for revenge.  "Ned Rifle" plays at the Royal Cinema (608 College St. in Toronto) tonight at 7 pm, and tomorrow and Sunday at 6:45 pm.  Check out theRoyal.TO for more info!
