Event Description



Based on a short story by acclaimed author Alice Munroe, this is the dazzling, lyrical and moving debut of award-winning actress, writer and director Sarah Polley.

Married for 50 years, Fiona (Julie Christie) and Grant's (Gordon Pinsent) commitment to each other appears unwavering - their everyday life full of tenderness & humour; a serenity broken by increasing tension created by Fiona's erratic memory loss and the couple's uncertainty increases as the behaviour becomes more obvious and dramatic.

Unable to ignore what is happening, Grant is forced to confront his own anguish and embarks on the greatest act of self-sacrifice of his life as a means to attaining his wife's final happiness.

This is the ultimate expression of memory, devotion and the circuitous, sometime unfathomable path of true love.

7.00pm Thursday 7th May 2015
