Golden’s Film Kicks series is starting the year off with the critically acclaimed Canadian movie Still Mine.
Starring American actor James Cromwell, (The Green Mile, L.A. Confidential), Still Mine follows the story of Craig and Irene Morrison, an octogenarian couple who are slowly beginning to change, especially with Irene exhibiting signs of early dementia.
No longer able to make a go of it on their small coastal New Brunswick farm, Craig starts milling lumber from trees on their property to build a more suitable one storey house.
Based on true events, the film delivers a deeply affecting love story laced with wry humour.
Still Mine is the first of six films coming to Golden for the series. The films always show on Thursdays at the Golden Cinema (Nov. 10, Jan. 16, Feb. 6, Mar. 6, and Apr. 3). Check back in the Golden Star for summaries on the films.
Still Mine will show at the Golden Cinema on Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m. The cost is $12 for adults, $5 for students, and $10 for Kicking Horse Culture members. Seasons passes are also available for $50 at the Art Gallery of Golden or at the door on Oct. 17.
Note: Tickets are cash only at the cinema, there is no debit machine.
