Tom at the Farm. Xavier Dolan (J’ai tué ma mere, Laurence Anyways). Well know for comedy, this young auteur has been a tour de force in Quebec since he was 18.
Enemy. I’ve been a huge fan of Denis Villeneuve since Maelström and Incendies. This one stars Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain) and Sarah Gadon (Cosmopolis). You can’t go wrong.
When Jews Were Funny. This documentary is filled with comedy heavy weights.
Rhymes for Young Ghouls looks interesting, but I know nothing about the film maker.
Sarah Prefers to Run is also interesting.

Please tell us which of these films if any would the rest of you recommend for newcomers to Canada as a way to learn about Canadian culture? Ruth.
