New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

Closes November 30
🇨🇦 Sponsored by the Kingston Canadian Film Festival

Oscar-winning Quebec satirist Denys Arcand’s (The Barbarian Invasions, The Decline of the American Empire, Jesus of Montreal) lampoon of political correctness.

Jean-Michel, a 73-year-old bachelor, lives in a retirement home run by Suzanne. Their world is shaken up by the sudden arrival of young political activists campaigning for the removal of an ancient fresco depicting the welcoming of Europeans by Native Americans. As Jean-Michel is progressively losing faith in a world dominated by political correctness, he realizes his unsuspected love for Suzanne.
