October 29:  Henri Henri* (Canada, 99 min., 2014, rated G). Young Henri finds his life turned upside down when the nuns sell the convent to a real estate developer, forcing Henri to move out and learn how to make his way in the outside world. He is about to discover a new world, a new home, a new job, and meet his first love. In this quirky comedy, characters circulate around Henri connecting and making sense of their adventure at the lighting shop; the electrician, an eccentric recluse, a bad-tempered neighbour and a theatre ticket sales woman. At the convent, Henri was in charge of everything to do with lights, and he's always happy to repeat his life philosophy: "I like to put light in people's lives." With his ingenuity, he will illuminate the lives of people around him.

November 12: Hacksaw Ridge (US/Australia, 139 min., 2016, rated R) Directed by Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss, the conscientious objector who, during the bloodiest battle of WWII, the Battle of Okinawa, as an army medic, single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor for his incredible bravery and regard for his fellow soldiers. We see his upbringing and how this shaped his views, especially his religious view and anti-killing stance. We see Doss's trials and tribulations after enlisting in the US Army and trying to become a medic.

 November 26: A Brilliant Young Mind (UK., 111 min., 2015, rated PG-13). In a world difficult to comprehend, Nathan struggles to connect with those around him - most of all his loving mother - but finds comfort in numbers. When Nathan is taken under the wing of unconventional and anarchic teacher, Mr. Humphreys, the pair forge an unusual friendship and Nathan's talents win him a place on the UK team at the International Mathematics Olympiad. From suburban England to bustling Taipei and back again, Nathan builds complex relationships as he is confronted by the irrational nature of love. This heart-warming and life-affirming story follows the unconventional and hilarious relationship between student and teacher - whose roles are often reversed - and the unfathomable experience of first love - even when you don't understand what love is.

 December 10: Rosewater (USA, 103 min., 2014, rated R) Directed by Jon Stewart, Rosewater is based on a true story about Maziar Bahari, a Canadian broadcast journalist who endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC and was subsequently arrested by police and brutally interrogated in prison for 118 days. An interview and sketch that Maziar did with a journalist on The Daily Show was used as evidence that Maziar was a spy and in communication with the American government and the CIA. The only distinguishable feature about his captor is the distinct smell of rosewater. With Bahari's wife leading an international campaign to have her husband freed, and Western media outlets keeping the story alive.
