INDEPENDENT FILMS – Kathy Kay

Coming up are three indie hits

Juliette Binoche lights up the screen in the highly lauded A Thousand Times Goodnight (see previous page). Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars as well, and you will likely know him as the wicked Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones. He’s also in Susanne Biers’ latest, A Second Chance, which just premiered at TIFF. Coster-Waldau has that intense, broody vibe going, in a film written by screenwriter Anders Thomas Jensen. It was one of my favs at TIFF, but my top pick went to Force Majeure. Fingers crossed for Victoria Film Festival appearances.

Coming up are three indie hits: Daniel Radcliffe’s latest horror film, Horns; Studio Ghibli’s Tale of Princess Kaguya; and the Victoria Film Festival hit Life’s a Breeze. That should help beat the November blahs.

And finally, if you were getting nervous about where to get your Halloween fix of Rocky Horror Picture Show, the baton has been passed to The Vic Theatre where they now sport a new liquor licence. Toast & Beer – yum!
