Film Schedule   


Monsieur Lazhar

June 1-3

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm


"Fellag's deeply felt performance is matched by the natural charm of the novice actors whom Falardeau guides to poignancy, enhanced by Jean-Pascal Hamelin's beautifully spare piano score. Monsieur Lazhar is as simple as sunlight, yet as difficult as forgiveness." Peter Howell, The Toronto Star. Nominated for an Academy Award and adapted from Evelyne de la Cheneliere's play, Monsieur Lazhar depicts the encounter between two distant worlds and the power of self-expression. Using great sensitivity and humor, Philippe Falardeau follows a humble man who is ready to transcend his own loss in order to accompany children beyond the silence and taboo of death.

PG-13; 94 minutes; French with English subtitles
