Let the power of the imagination transport you to a dark and fantastic place in Cast No Shadow. Shadow, a surprise and worthy nominee for Best Film at this year’s Canadian Screen Awards, finds both the brightness and the darkness of the imagination as Jude conjures strange and unusual images in his mind. The mind plays games on young Jude and these violent and sinister dreams are both his curse and his safe haven. This moody coming-of-age story is escapism at its deepest and darkest.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of ★★★★★)
Update: In honour of Canadian Film Day, there's a FREE screening of Cast No Shadow in select cities/theatres April 29. Get your tickets for the Ottawa event here!
And if you can't make that event, the film opens at The Mayfair on May 22.
(Any day is a good day to celebrate Canadian film!)
