Wicked Little Letters

Wicked Little Letters

  • Opens May 9
  • Special WIFW Q & A with director and writer

A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a farcical and occasionally sinister scandal in this riotous mystery comedy. Based on a stranger than fiction true story, Wicked Little Letters follows two neighbours: deeply conservative local Edith Swan (Olivia Colman) and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley). When Edith and fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town’s women - led by Police Officer Gladys Moss (Anjana Vasan) - begin to investigate the crime themselves, they suspect that something is amiss.

La Bête / The Beast

La Bête / The Beast

  • debut le 16 mai / opens May 16

In a near future dominated by artificial intelligence, human emotions have been deemed a threat. In order to purge hers and purify her DNA, Gabrielle must navigate her past lives to try to isolate the lingering pangs, not only of passion, but also of clutching fear. In both 1904 France and 2014 Los Angeles, she encounters Louis anew — a dashing English aristocrat in the former time, a bitter incel in the latter. Despite each dramatically reconfigured dynamic, an inexplicable yearning remains. Lurking alongside, however, is a palpable sense of premonition: the metaphorical beast.

Humane

Humane

  • Opens May 23

Taking place over a single day, mere months after a global ecological collapse has forced world leaders to take extreme measures to reduce the earth’s population. In a wealthy enclave, a recently retired newsman has invited his four grown children to dinner to announce his intentions to enlist in the nation’s new euthanasia program. But when the father’s plan goes horribly awry, tensions flare and chaos erupt among his children. Directed by Caitlyn Cronenberg and starring Jay Baruchel, Emily Hampshire, Peter Gallagher and Enrico Colantoni.

La Chimera

La Chimera

  • Opens May 30

Everyone has their own Chimera: something they try to achieve but never manage to find. For the band of tombaroli, thieves of ancient grave goods and archaeological wonders, the Chimera means redemption from work and the dream of easy wealth. For Arthur (Josh O’Connor), the Chimera looks like the woman he lost, Beniamina. If La Chimera is a wild, improbable pursuit, this marvelous and magical tale by Alice Rochrwacher is the pie in the sky to behold.

Do Not Expect
Too Much from the
End of the World

Do Not Expect Too Much from the End of the World

  • Opens May 30

As unique and breathlessly expansive as its title, Do Not Expect Too Much from the End of the World adds to the evidence supporting Radu Jude’s status as a uniquely gifted and provocative filmmaker. An overworked and underpaid production assistant must drive around the city of Bucharest to film the casting for a workplace safety video commissioned by a multinational company. When one of her interviewees makes a statement that ignites a scandal she is forced to re-invent the whole story.

Brise Glace /
Broken Waters

Brise Glace / Broken Waters

  • Opens June 6

For Dr Marguerite Lafontaine (Valérie Descheneaux), a new patient caught up in an imaginary pregnancy and stories of child kidnappings is the perfect opportunity for talk therapy. But closed-minded colleagues, a surprisingly unsupportive husband, and the patient’s toxic mother take their toll. Broken Waters is Canada's first ever bilingual drama featuring female Franco-Ontarian characters.

I Used to Be Funny

I Used to Be Funny

I Used To Be Funny is a dark dramedy that follows Sam Cowell (Rachel Sennott), an aspiring stand-up comedian and au pair struggling with PTSD, as she decides whether or not to join the search for Brooke (Olga Petsa), a missing teenage girl she used to nanny. The story exists between the present, where Sam tries to recover from her trauma and get back on stage, and the past, where memories of Brooke make it harder and harder to ignore the petulant teen's sudden disappearance.

In A Violent Nature

In A Violent Nature

  • Opens June 7

Described as an "ambient slasher", In A Violent Nature follows a silent killer who targets a group of teenagers in the Ontario wilderness, with the events observed largely from the killer's perspective.

Fancy Dance

Fancy Dance

  • Opens June 28

Since her sister's disappearance, Jax (Lily Gladstone) has cared for her niece Roki (Isabel Deroy-Olson) by scraping by on the Seneca-Cayuga Reservation in Oklahoma. Every spare minute goes into finding her missing sister while also helping Roki prepare for an upcoming powwow. At the risk of losing custody to Jax's father Frank (Shea Whigham), the pair hit the road and scour the backcountry to track down Roki's mother in time for the powwow. What begins as a search gradually turns into a far deeper investigation into the complexities and contradictions of Indigenous women moving through a colonized world, and at the mercy of a failed justice system.
