This Week's Movie


This week (Aug 22, 23, 24, 27 at 7:30pm), we show Wish I Was Here.

Rating: 14A for coarse and sexual language.

Comedy/Drama. A struggling actor (Zach Braff) copes with the ailing health of his father (Mandy Patinkin), while also trying his best to support his wife (Kate Hudson) and two children. He winds up trying to home school his two children when his father can no longer afford to pay for private education and the only available public school is on its last legs. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn't find. --Alberta Film Ratings, Wikipedia
