When Dane (Jason Segel) moves in to help out his best friends from college, Nicole (Dakota Johnson) and Matthew (Casey Affleck) Teague, all three expect a short stay. Nicole has been diagnosed with cancer and Matthew is struggling to keep up with her needs while trying to help raise their two daughters. But as a temporary gesture extends into an indefinite living arrangement, he all but leaves his own life behind. As Nicole's condition worsens, the lines between friendship and family begin to blur. With brilliant performances from the whole cast, Gabriela Cowperthwaite (best known for eco-documentary Blackfish) crafts a uniquely epic and heart-wrenchingly bittersweet saga of three friends and their intertwining lives.

Une Colonie
Une Colonie

Winning Best Picture at the Canadian Screen Awards and a Crystal Bear (Berlinale) is no small feat for a feature debut. A Colony is an honest and at times awkward story about coming of age in a small town, subtly set against the background of Canada’s colonialism and indigenous culture. Unique and touching.
