Event Description

Adapted from award-winning author Miriam Toews’ international best-selling novel, Michael McGowan (One Week) directs an extraordinary cast in this family drama focused on two unforgettable sisters. Elfreida (Sarah Gadon) is a beautiful, gifted and celebrated concert pianist whose battles with depression result in an attempt to end her life.

Her younger sister Yolandi (Allison Pill) is a tormented writer, recently divorced and haunted by her own demons but is determined to save her sister despite their fundamental differences. As they both avoid and confront the past trauma of their father’s suicide and vestiges of their Mennonite upbringing, their unfiltered conversations and biting retorts capture the uncomfortable truths we commonly pretend don’t exist.

The raw and honest portrayal of sisterhood provides the backbone to this heart-wrenching story that doesn’t aim for easy answers, allowing for nuanced performances that stay true to their source material, bringing one of Canada’s most exceptional writer’s works to the big screen.
