#CanadaDay might be a bit different this year so…I checked out what’s available at Hollywood Suite The O Canada Spotlight on July 1st includes The Red Violin, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Meatballs, Canadian Bacon, Strange Brew, and Eastern Promises.
The Red Violin (1998) 12:40 pm on HS90 #CanadaDay
This drama, directed by François Girard and starring Samuel L. Jackson, Sandra Oh, Don McKellar and Greta Scacchi spans four centuries and five countries as it tells the story of a mysterious red-colored violin and its many owners.
The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974) 3:35 pm on HS70 #CanadaDay
Based on Mordecai Richler’s novel, Richard Dreyfus stars as Duddy, a poor boy raised in Montreal, driven by power, money and owning land as he dreams of becoming the next rags-to-riches story.
Meatballs (1979) 9:00 pm on HS70 #CanadaDay
Ivan Reitman’s ode to summer camp features Bill Murray in his first starring role as Tripper, head counsellor at the cut-rate Camp North Star. Shot in Haliburton, Ontario, the film is full of high jinks and pranks as Camp North Star competes in annual games against Camp Mohawk, a more elite camp. Meatballs gave rise to the careers of Murray and Reitman along with the chant “It Just Doesn’t Matter.”
Canadian Bacon (1995) 9:00 pm on HS90 #CanadaDay
Michael Moore directed this US-Canada co-pro about a US president who tries to boost his sagging approval rating by starting a war with Canada. Alan Alda, Rhea Perlman, and Kevin Pollack lead the charge with John Candy in his final movie role.
Strange Brew (1983) 10:40 pm on HS80 #CanadaDay
Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis take their goofy SCTV characters Bob and Doug Mackenzie on a big-screen adventure. Max von Sydow plays an evil brewmeister who plans to take over the world by placing a mind-control drug in Elsinore beer. Little does he know the power of the hoser, eh?
Eastern Promises (2007) at 11:20 pm on HS00 #CanadaDay
Directed by David Cronenberg and starring Naomi Watts, Viggo Mortensen, Armin Mueller-Stahl and Vincent Cassel, this gritty crime drama centres around a Russian teenager living in London who dies during childbirth. Clues in her journal lead a midwife to the girl’s ties with a violent Russian mob family.
