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

Closes June 15
Acclaimed Canadian Art Cinema

A perfect summer day ends in tragedy, weaving a cosmic connection between three suburban teenagers. Best friends Colton and Kyle float the river, trade dreams, and spray-paint in the local ravine. Like the boys, Whitney explores the ravine, seeking solace by writing and drawing in her diary. But when her best friend abandons her, Whitney disappears. The kids’ lives swirl with natural wonder and beauty, but darkness and death loom not far behind. The discovery of Whitney’s diary transports us to a mirror world. A magical ravine. A paranormal encounter. The return of a dead black cat. Is this a dream? The afterlife? Once deeply connected, are we ever really alone?

The Maiden is a haunting work that announces the arrival of a startling new talent.

Globe and Mail

It’s rare to come across a first film that is so invested in reimagining such well-trafficked territory from the inside out.
