CONFIRMED:
THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING

Baillie

Sometimes you have to dress for the job you want, not the one you have. We weren't 100% sure that we'd be permitted to play the Oscar-nominated The Theory of Everything, but we can now assure you that we'll be showing the maybe-Best Picture as advertised!


REVIEW: THE NIGHT CANADA STOOD STILL & THE MORNING AFTER

kane

"The story of the Quebec referendum... provides some explanation for the Canada we have today, a Canada in which leaders seem more divorced from the populations that elected them, bent instead on personal power – at almost any cost, even if the cost is the very survival of the country they are charged to lead. The intensity of feeling on both sides of the referendum issue seems to have created a culture of personal ambition, one so strong that it takes precedence over listening to the people." READ MORE


REVIEW: THE DEVIL YOU KNOW

kane

"Paranoia, whether it's justified or misplaced, has a way of turning a banal situation into a charged scenario, of turning a regular person in the world into a character in a book. Elisabeth de Mariaffi's The Devil You Know is a tense read, but what sets it apart from most taught thrillers is the nature of its core tension... This first novel taps into and keeps a hold of the the real-life, palpable fear and doubt created by ambient, cultural paranoia." READ MORE


REVIEW: IN TIMES OF FADING LIGHT

kane

"Every so often you encounter a work of fiction that rolls back the curtain onto life and, suddenly, human beings emerge, real yet in your mind. In Times of Fading Light is such a work, a sweeping saga of an “ordinary” family that reads like a biography of the German Democratic Republic - East Germany."READ MORE


REVIEW: EVIL LIBRARIAN

kane

"This book displays the perfect balance between all you want out of a high school drama, and the supernatural, and it executes it flawlessly! I encourage everyone who even seems captivated by the title or cover of this novel to explore it."READ MORE
