THE DIVINE ORDER: Opens Friday, Nov 3rd @ Cineplex Yonge + Dundas (Toronto, ON)

1971: Nora is a young housewife and mother, living in a quaint little village with her husband and their two sons. The Swiss countryside is untouched by the major social upheavals the movement of 1968 has brought about. Nora’s life is not affected either; she is a quiet person who is liked by everybody – until she starts to publicly fight for women’s suffrage, which the men are due to vote on in a ballot on February 7, 1971.

Films We Like Presents the Canadian Family Classic "HOCKEY NIGHT", new 4K Restoration - Saturday Dec 17 at the Revue Cinema, Toronto

FILMS WE LIKE PRESENTS  THE CANADIAN FAMILY CLASSIC “HOCKEY NIGHT” NEW 4K RESTORATION!

SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT at the REVUE CINEMA, TORONTO!

SATURDAY DECEMBER 17TH, 4PM
Q&A WITH ORIGINAL CAST AND CREW INCLUDING YANNICK BISSON (Actor - MURDOCH MYSTERIES), JACK BLUM (Writer) 

ENCORE SCREENINGS: 
TUESDAY DECEMBER 27 + THURSDAY DEC 29, 2017

Following its World Premiere at the Whistler Film Festival, Films We Like presents the theatrical release of the beloved 1984 Canadian family drama Hockey Night, gloriously restored to 4K from its original elements.

What's a girl to do when her family moves to a small town where “fun hasn't been invented yet” and where there is no girl’s hockey team? For Cathy Yarrow (Megan Follows, Ann of Green Gables, Rain), the answer is simple: strap on her goalie pads and try out for the boy's all-star team.

Local broadcaster Bum Johnston (Maury Chaykin) doesn't think a girl's place is in a hockey arena. Nor does lumber magnate Bill Moss (Henry Ramer), the team’s sponsor. But Cathy stands firm between the pipes, helping the team win games while winning herself loyal allies in star player Spear Kozak (Yannick Bisson, Murdoch Mysteries) and coach Willie Liepert (Rick Moranis).

Hockey Night is an uplifting and rousing story of adolescent relationships, the struggles of small-town politics and of triumph over the expectations and pressures of the adult world.
