If you're curious about 2020 best film Academy Award winner “Parasite,” there are now more opportunities to catch it at Sudbury Indie Cinema.
The recent Best Picture winner has become a genuine arthouse hit at the cinema and Indie Cinema has decided to hold it over for additional screenings.
The film is playing at Sudbury Indie Cinema at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday Feb. 20, 6:30 p.m. on Friday Feb. 21, 2 p.m. on Saturday Feb. 22, and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday Feb. 23.
The South Korean dark comedy thriller film that was the surprise winner of the Oscar for best picture has the following description on IMDB: “A poor family, the Kims, con their way into becoming the servants of a rich family, the Parks. But their easy life gets complicated when their deception is threatened with exposure.”
"I felt the confidence of director Bong Joon-Ho's storytelling,” said the Indie Cinema's Bennett Malcomson.
“I had little idea where it was going from one minute to the next and was happy to be taken by the film — and then devastated by its content and conclusions,” and, "You won’t want to miss this on the big screen."
But that’s not the only hit to grace the screens of Sudbury Indie Cinema. “Il Pleuvait des Oiseux,” the film based on the acclaimed novel by Jocelyn Saucier, screened to immense fanfare at the cinema.
The film is included in TIFF’s Canada Top 10 of 2019 and is the final film of the acclaimed Québec actress Andrée Lachapelle who passed away shortly after the film's release.
The film will return to Sudbury Indie Cinema on Saturday, March 21, Thursday, March 26, Sunday, March 29, and Tuesday, March 31. It is screened in French with English Subtitles. Times to be announced.
The Québec made rumination on age, the need to live independently, and on one's own terms has the following description on IMDB: "Three elderly hermits live in the woods. While wildfires once threatened the region, their quiet life is about to be shaken by the arrival of two women - A story of intertwined destinies, where love can happen at any age.” The fires that haunt the memory of the film are the Matheson fires of 1916 and the film is set in Northern Québec — giving it a Northern connection.
