21:00 Elephant Song at Friday, March 27, 2015 at 9:00 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 4 days left to see this film.

Rated: Parental Guidance (Mature Theme)
Runs: 110 minutes
Director: Charles Binamé
Country: Canada
Released: 2015
Starring: Bruce Greenwood, Colm Feore, Xavier Dolan, Catherine Keener
Awards: Canadian Screen Award Nominee for Best Actor and Winner for Best Adapted Screenplay.

“Award-winning director Charles Binamé unfolds a story of drama, deception, and desperation in Elephant Song... The film delves into the mind of troubled psychiatric patient Michael, detailing the complex back-and-forth between him and the unprepared doctor who attempts to untangle his web of lies. When psychiatrist Dr. Lawrence goes mysteriously missing from a hospital that has recently been plagued by scandal, Dr. Toby Green is called in to investigate before the news goes public. Convinced that Michael is hiding knowledge about his colleague Green is determined to control both the situation and the patient, adamantly ignoring the advice from the person who knows Michael best, Nurse Susan Peterson. As Michael demonstrates his superior intelligence and manipulative nature, it becomes increasingly unclear who is controlling the conversation. Binamé’s visually striking, cool design is a perfect mirror for the elaborate mind games at play, while setting a mood that underscores the fierce desperation percolating throughout. Inhabiting his role with complete conviction, Dolan is transfixing, and Greenwood brings meticulous control to his portrayal of Michael’s baffled counterpart. The dynamic relationship between the two leaves the viewer on edge as the stakes rise and the truth becomes that much harder to reach.” – Steve Gravestock, Toronto International Film Festival
