Directed by Monia Chokri | Canada/France | 2023 | 1h 50m | French w/ English subtitles | Starring Magalie Lépine Blondeau, Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Francis-William Rhéaume, Monia Chokri, Steve Laplante

Sophie, a 40-year-old philosophy professor, has been in a stable yet somewhat passionless relationship for ten years. When she meets Sylvain, a craftsman renovating the couple’s new country house, there is an instant connection and a passionate affair ensues. As they get to know each other more deeply, Sophie begins to question her life choices and values. Sexy, sharp, and perceptive, French-Canadian director Monia Chokri’s romantic comedy offers a shrewd portrait of desire, fidelity, and social norms.

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
