If you’re looking to support Canadian film get out and see The Captive this weekend. Written & Directed by Canadian legend Atom Egoyan it was shot in Sudbury, Ontario in the middle of winter. It stars Vancouver’s own Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman from Toronto and Kevin Durand from Thunder Bay. It’s about a little girl who goes missing and eight years later her parents (Reynolds & the Killing’s Mireille Enos) start to get clues that maybe she’s still alive. Opens nationwide today.
Atom Egoyan has made a movie set in a remote, snow covered town about a girl who goes missing. That’s exactly the kind of movie we should be excited about Atom Egoyan directing. Seriously.
