Reel Movie Mondays: Fall 2022

Ali & Ava

Directed by Clio Barnard | UK | 95 mins | English, Game Theory | Rated 14A

A bundle of good humour and nervous energy, Ali (Adeel Akhtar) is a British Pakistani working-class landlord who forges close bonds with his tenants.

One day, while picking up one of his tenants’ children from school, he offers a lift to Ava (Claire Rushbrook), an Irish-born teacher and single mother of five. They bond almost instantly through their love of music, though Ali favours the high energy of Buzzcocks and hip-hop while Ava takes refuge in the quieter comforts of Bob Dylan and Karen Dalton. Despite their divergent backgrounds, differences in their stages of life, and the colour of their skin, despite the fact of Ali’s failing marriage and Ava’s fraught relationship with her adult and adolescent children, each finds themself irresistibly drawn to the other. But can their mutual desire transcend a barrage of personal obstacles?

Fire of Love

Directed by Sara Dosa | USA/Canada | 98 mins | English/French, Mongrel Media | Rated PG

Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things — each other and volcanoes.

For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and documenting their discoveries. Ultimately, they lost their lives in a 1991 volcanic explosion, leaving a legacy that forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world.

Director Sara Dosa and the filmmaking team fashion a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the Kraffts’ spectacular archive. Fire of Love tells a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two bold explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for the sake of love.

Advance ticket sales are available until 4:30 pm on film nights. “At the door” tickets can be purchased (pending availability) from 6-6:30 pm in the lobby of Carnival Cinemas ($12 each – no member/student rates or coupons).

Join us at Carnival Cinemas for the fan favourite screening of The Dressmaker!


Directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, 14A
Australia | 118 minutes | English

This wickedly comic drama stars Kate Winslet as a worldly dressmaker returning to the Australian backwater that exiled her. The Dressmaker is a sumptuous, saucy, and scandalous tale of love and vengeance in the mid-1950s. It also has the most fabulous gowns this side of the red carpet.

Tilly Dunnage (Winslet) arrives in the small town of Dungatar like a gunslinger: broad-brimmed hat on her head, sleek pumps on her feet, trusty Singer sewing machine at her side. When Tilly is hired to design and custom-make haute couture for the more rebellious local ladies, a battle line is drawn: on one side, those who love Tilly’s progressive style, and on
the other side, Dungatar’s conservative busybody contingent.

“Moorhouse’s adaptation of Rosalie Ham’s 2000 novel may lead audiences to expect a primmer, more well-behaved movie based on its title alone, but that doesn’t mean it won’t have them in stitches.” —Justin Chang, Variety

Principle Cast: Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth, Judy Davis, Hugo Weaving
