Another review that’s positive despite not being able to keep The Revenant out of the lead. Jesus wept. 🙂


The biggest story in the film world right now includes hypothermia, parenthood, bear attacks and Leonardo DiCaprio’s potential first Oscar win in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s The Revenant. Who knew its companion piece would be revealed at Toronto’s Theatre Passe Muraille, and that Hollywood’s favourite movie would share so many similarities with a story foundational to the creation of Canada.

In Elle, which had its world premiere this week at Passe Muraille directed by Christine Brubaker, writer and actor Severn Thompson adapts Douglas Glover’s 2003 novel of the same name into a mostly solo performance that weaves feminism, survival instincts, colonialism and magic realism together.

Read the rest at The Toronto Star.

  1. The Star needs to hire new copy editors; I believe the word they’re looking for in the headline is “complement”, not “compliment”.

  2. Might this show travel? Maybe to the states?

    • Paul, Anything is possible but not the sort of thing that will happen soonish. One hopes for some sort of touring option to develop.
