"Away From Her" is the lyrical screenplay adaptation of celebrated author Alice Munro's short story "The Bear Came Over the Mountain." A beautifully moving love story that deals with memory and the circuitous, unnamable paths of a long marriage. Married for almost 50 years, Grant (Gordon Pinsent) and Fiona's (Julie Christie) commitment to each other appears unwavering, and their everyday life is full of tenderness and humor. This serenity is broken only by the occasional, carefully restrained reference to the past, giving a sense that this marriage may not always have been such a fairy tale. This tendency of Fiona's to make such references, along with her increasingly evident memory loss, creates a tension that is usually brushed off casually by both of them. As the lapses become more obvious and dramatic, it is no longer possible for either of them to ignore the fact that Fiona is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

      BLIND DATING is a hilarious comedy about Danny (Chris Pine), an intelligent, confident, handsome young man who also happens to be blind. Not that he's letting that hold him back - for the most part, Danny refuses to let his visual impairment get in the way of anything. Which is why Danny's girl-crazy, limo-driving brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas, AMERICAN PIE) is horrified to discover that Danny is not only shy and nervous when it comes to the opposite sex, he's also a virgin. Also starring Jane Seymour and directed by James Keach, BLIND DATING is a warm and funny story about overcoming cultural boundaries, physiological differences, and above all, finding true love.

            Surreal, satiric and surprisingly touching, Maddin's film looks at the secret lives of families in a work that is equal parts childhood reminiscence, Expressionist horror movie, teen detective serial and Grand Guignol reverie. Guy Maddin's latest delirious creation is a silent film like none you have ever seen before.
