MOVIES

Shane suffered an upper body injury while watching DVDs on Easter Weekend so I’m filling in for him this issue. It shouldn’t be any biggie, as I always edit his listings anyway, but there is one film set to be released where his knowledge of the plot and characters is “infinitely” greater than mine. So my blurb will be a pale shadow of what he would’ve written had he not been shelved by a UBI. /Gregory Beatty

C’EST LA VIE! This comedy is set in 17th century France, and sees staff at a palace gear up for a gala wedding.

OH LUCY A single, repressed Tokyo woman enrols in an unusual English class where she’s required to don a blonde wig and take on the alter ego of “Lucy”.  While that sounds like a great premise for a comedy, the film takes a dark turn when the woman’s niece runs off with the American instructor (Josh Hartnett) and she ends up travelling to California to search for her.

THE GREAT DICTATOR This screening of Charlie Chaplin’s 1940 satiric masterpiece about the dangers of fascism is being held the night before a Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra concert at the Roxy where two of Chaplin’s earlier silent movies (The Immigrant and The Adventurer) will be screened.
