Lucid


For anyone bemoaning a lack of Canadian content at the movie theatres, here's your chance to support a small Canadian indie-pic. Lucid, featured at last year's TIFF and reviewed by blogTO last fall, will be playing at the Cumberland beginning this Friday.

I met the director, Sean Garrity, just a few days ago. An amicable bloke, he's understandably frustrated over the limited release of his new film (it's only in three theatres across Canada: one each in Toronto, Winnipeg, and Vancouver) but it's hard to garner nation-wide exposure when American marketing dollars are five to ten times the entire budget of most Canadian films. So, this is just a gentle nudge for all those who wish to support home-grown talent. Give Lucid a look this weekend at the Cumberland (159 Cumberland St. in Yorkville).
