Tribute to the late Jean-Marc Vallée on National Canadian Film Day

On Dec 25, 2021, Canada lost one of its best, most important filmmakers, Jean Marc Vallée. C.R.A.Z.Y. (2005) was his third feature film and the one that put him on the map.

Free screening! Part of National Canadian Film Day.

"Jean-Marc Vallée’s colourful coming-of-age/coming-out tale, is a crowd-pleasing classic of 21st-century Canadian cinema. Zac (Marc-André Grondin) is a sexually confused teenager growing up Catholic in suburban Montreal in the 1970s. His mom (Danielle Proulx) is comically convinced that Christmas-born Zac, who likes bouncing around his bedroom lip-synching David Bowie, has God-given powers. His old-school dad (Michel Côté), himself given to lip-synching Charles Aznavour, worries that Zac may be a ​'fairy.' Vallée’s buoyant, bittersweet film displays great cinematic verve; the period production design by Patrice Vermette is spot-on perfect. A commercial and critical hit, C.R.A.Z.Y. won eleven Genie Awards, and gained Vallée an entrée to Hollywood (his U.S. credits included Dallas Buyers Club, Wild, and HBO’s Big Little Lies)." - Pacific Cinematheque
