In this week’s NOW, I cover The Good Lie from a couple of angles. There’s an interview in the paper with Philippe Falardeau, a very nice person who’s about to level up substantially on the world stage, and a web Q&A with stars Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal and Kuoth Weil. (No, Reese Witherspoon is not the movie’s star. The poster is lying to you.)
I also take a look at the second half of TIFF’s Jean-Luc Godard retrospective, and throw a little love at the Goethe Institute’s series looking at the cinematic legacy of the Berlin Wall, a quarter-century after its collapse. I’ll be introducing the first one — Christian Petzold’s excellent Barbara — tonight at 6:30 pm at the Lightbox. Perhaps you would care to join me?
