In 1926, a band of teenage boys arrive at Long Point Camp for the adventure of their lives. When their canoe capsizes in a freak summer storm, their holiday descends into a soul-shuddering fight for survival. Based on a true story, BROTHERHOOD is currently nominated for two Canadian Screen Awards (Achievement in Visual Effects, Achievement in Music – Original Song). Writer-director Richard Bell will be joining us for a post-screening Q&A on Saturday, March 14. With Brendan Fletcher, Brendan Fehr, Jake Manley.
“Bell succeeds in stripping back the mythos of what it means “to be a man” and how strong one can really be while embracing compassion, vulnerability and love instead.” (Globe and Mail)
“This modern talkie tells a powerful story, worth putting up with the whirr and buzz of the film projector to experience it.” (National Post)
“Bell orchestrates some fine moments among the young cast… It’s a hell of a tale.” (Now Magazine)
