INDEPENDENT FILMS – Kathy Kay

The mother of all, the Academy Awards has played out

The awards season is over. The mother of all, the Academy Awards has played out, and now it’s time to catch films that are just making a stop in Victoria. One that will be popping up by the end of February and early March, and not to be missed is Two Days, One Night by the Dardenne brothers, who have created a remarkably intriguing human dilemma.

Marion Cotillard (nominated for an Academy Award) plays Sandra, who, missing work too often, is set to be laid off – the twist comes when her co-workers are asked to vote on whether to save Sandra’s job or receive a bonus.

Around town: Cinecenta is trying out late afternoon shows on Mondays. The Vic Theatre has brought on board Sunday matinees and may soon add Saturday.

De Vine Winery, in conjunction with the Victoria Film Festival, is planning outdoor films this summer and – rumor has it – to be accompanied by a pig roast.
