On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story using over 65,000 painted animated frames created by dozens of artists. (95 mins)
"Loving Vincent is gorgeous. It's a film of immersive beauty." – John Semley, The Globe and Mail
"The painstaking work done by Kobiela and Welchman to turn some of the artist’s most prized canvases into animated scenes can be impressive to behold." – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
In Victorian England just before Christmas in 1843, a debt-ridden and dispirited Charles Dickens wrote a small book he hoped would keep his creditors at bay. His publisher turned it down, so Dickens used what little money he had to publish A Christmas Carol himself. He worried it might be the end of his career as a novelist but it instead caused a sensation, breathing new life into a holiday that had fallen into disfavor. In an era desperate for spiritual renewal, the public eagerly embraced a story that ended with blessings for one and all. Starring Dan Stevens as Dickens and Christopher Plummer as Ebenezer Scrooge. (PG, 104 mins)
"In addition to being a rather fine addition to the Christmas-movie canon, the film marks a useful teaching tool — a better option for classroom screenings than any of the previous “Carol” adaptations."– Peter Debruge, Variety
"There are many pleasures along the way, including the effective evocation of Victorian-era London." – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
