Films Kicks is getting ready to start another series of great films which will be shown at the Golden Cinema.

This year the first movie will be shown on October 11 when the critically acclaimed Monsieur Lazhar hits the screen.

The movie centres around a Montréal public grade school and an Algerian immigrant who is hired after a tragedy occurs at the school.

The new teacher, Bachir Lazhar (played by Mohamed Fellag), a 55-year-old Algerian immigrant, finds himself in an establishment in crisis.

The film takes a look at the many levels of struggles that not only Lazhar is facing, but also the children, other workers, and many of the characters in the film. Along with the strong performances from the adults in the cast, the children too have the ability to bring a viewer into their world.

The film was selected as the Canadian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards

Live Kicks is part of Kicking Horse Culture and is dedicated to bringing independent movies from the Toronto International Film Festival to our community.
