Connie’s Hot Flashes on Movies

Run Time 4:21 minutes- Tuesday 6:30AM Wednesday 7:30AM and Friday 6PM
CANVAS (a free screening at the Virginia on 4-27 at 4:30)
Also an Ebertfest choice, CANVAS looks in on a family dealing with the mother’s schizophrenia where a normal home life is impossible because of it. The son is teased at school, the Dad has no emotional support system, and the unstable mom is hospitalized. The family portrays a down to earth slice of reality; the ending is a bit too upbeat to mirror reality, but it’s a solid little film about how a family and the world deal with mental illness.
FOUR MONTHS, THREE WEEKS, AND TWO DAYS (at the Boardman)
a tough movie watching experience that directly deals with the abortion topic. Unlike American directors who insist upon happy endings when an unexpected pregnancy surfaces (Juno, Knocked Up, Waitress), this Romanian film takes it on in an unflinching manner- haunting and aesthetically powerful. Won many international awards (Cannes, etc.) but totally shunned by our “wonderful” Oscar Committee. Go figure.
