Thank you for your patience! After a long wait, we've finally scheduled our first screening!
Refocus #1: DOWN TERRACE (Toronto Premiere)
Ben Wheatley | 2009 | 89 min | UK
Wednesday, September 29th
9:00PM - 11:00PM
at J.S.'s Living Room (285 1/2 College St.)
After serving time in prison, small-time gangsters, Big Bill and Karl (real life father and son, Robert and Robin Hill) head home to try and figure out who's responsible for their time away. Once home, tensions rise and paranoia takes over Bill, Karl, the family matriarch, Maggie (Spaced's Julia Deakin), and all of their friends/fiends. Shouting matches, bitter family resentment, an unwanted pregnancy, and bloody murders follow.
Heavily influenced by the kitchen sink films of Mike Leigh, with a pinch of the Coen Brothers, DOWN TERRACE is one of the most refreshing and enthralling entries into the gangster genre of the last decade.
