It's Raining Men

Iris et les hommes

This event has passed

Reuniting writer-director Caroline Vignal and actress Laure Calamy from 2020’s hit comedy My Donkey, My Lover and Me, It’s Raining Men is the tale of a frustrated wife and mother, Iris (Calamy), neglected by her workaholic husband, and discovering the wondrous new world of dating apps. To her amazement, sex for a woman at this point in the twenty-first century comes in all shapes and sizes, and without consequence (so long as you play your cards right — and learn how to turn notifications off on your phone.)

A natural comedienne, Calamy charts Iris’s journey from inhibition to enthusiastic sexual adventuress with droll delight, and Vignal observes the inevitable complications without judgment, but with a wry detachment.

Do Not Expect Too Much From the End of the World

Radu Jude takes two days in the life of a stressed Romanian p.a. and gives us an urgent, pissed off, sourly funny polemic on the state of late capitalism. Exploitation, discrimination and hypocrisy are his targets; dialectics are his dynamite.

Before I Change My Mind

Trevor Anderson's coming of age movie -- set in Edmonton, 1987 -- slyly subverts expectations, embracing complexity and contradiction in its nuanced take on fledgling identities, while delivering laugh-out-loud moments and big emotional showdowns.
