The Kingston Canadian Film Festival presents GUEST OF HONOUR
Director: Atom Egoyan
Featuring: David Thewlis, Laysla De Oliveira, Luke Wilson
Language: English; Armenian subtitled in English
Runtime: 105 minutes
Director Atom Egoyan has been challenging and captivating movie audiences for over 30 years now and his latest feature is one of his most compelling films to date. The great David Thewlis gives a richly textured performance as a Hamilton food safety inspector whose fastidious professional ways sharply contrast with the disorder in his personal life and in his relationship with his adult daughter, whose own career as a teacher is derailed by an apparent ethical lapse. Clues as to what’s really going on emerge gradually in a typically Egoyan-esque narrative rife with flashbacks, overlapping storylines and diverging interpretations of the same events. Likewise, GUEST OF HONOUR’s blend of mystery, melodrama and dry humour makes for a movie that only he could make.
To mark our 20th anniversary, we’re launching the Live the Experience Fund that will provide tickets for local schools and community groups to attend the Festival and live the experience first hand.
