Preview Screenings this Thursday: Hit Man - one of the most anticipated comedies of the year

Closes April 18
1 Oscar Win

Winner of the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay (Canada’s own Sarah Polley).

Writer-director Sarah Polley’s fearless adaptation of Miriam Toews’ acclaimed novel grants us access to a tight-knit, cloistered religious colony. 

Reeling from multiple counts of sexual abuse, newly uncovered within their Mennonite colony, a group of women gather in a hayloft to discuss how to respond. While the men are away, the women narrow their options down to three: do nothing, stay and fight, or leave.

A powerful, moving tribute to quiet strength — and, unexpectedly, to hope.

Seattle Times

Insightfully complex, for a film where almost every meaningful minute takes place in the dusty hayloft of a creaky old barn, this is as tense and as suspenseful a thriller as anything I’ve seen in 2022.
