ONTARIO, Canada | 100 minutes | 2019

When her father dies, Veronica confesses the many tangled secrets buried in her family history. Jim was a food inspector, a shadowy figure roaming the city in search of sanitation code violations in family-run restaurants that double as fascinating microcosms. Veronica, a talented music teacher, has spent many years in prison, but maybe not for the right crime. Atom Egoyan is back with a vengeance in this dizzying story-within-a-story, pursuing his favourite themes of grief, memory, guilt and communication. A passionately complex work of greatness.
Invitation only on October 19th

"... a complex, at times melancholic study of a father-daughter relationship gone awry over with the passing of time." The Playlist
