Mary Goes Round - Comox Valley Art Gallery Film Series associated with the Toronto International Film Festival followed by Drinks and Dinner at Avenue
The Movie Group saw a wonderful, challenging movie on Sunday night. "Mary Goes Round" follows a young addictions counsellor as she is faced with a life altering decision to get sober herself. On her very rough journey to find her sobriety, she rediscovers her father and begins a difficult relationship with her sister. There were a lot of issues packed into this relatively short, Canadian made, movie. It was a very good film, with very good performances by the Canadian actors. The audience was wrapped up in the movie, as they witnessed a couple of very tough realties being play out before them.
We took a breath as we travelled to the Avenue in Comox, and a wonderful, raucous dinner provided to 14 of us with plenty of laughs and camaraderie, much needed after such difficult subjects. The food was, as always, excellent!
The next movie is "Anthopocene: The Human Epoch", in two weeks.
