Trail & District Arts Council’s MONDAY CINEMA presents Anatomy of a Fall at The Royal Theatre, 1597 Bay Avenue in Trail on Monday, January 29 at 4 pm.
Doors open at 3:30 pm.
In a remote town in the French Alps, a man is found dead in the snow and his wife is suspected of her husband’s murder, their blind son the only witness. Part legal thriller and part family drama, the film is a taut, suspenseful, and thrilling story about perception, truth, and ambition wrapped in a heady puzzle.
“Prepare to be wowed by one of the best movies of the year, starring a sensational Sandra Hüller (heads up, Oscar) in Justine Triet’s forensic anatomy of a marriage told through the compulsively watchable story of a wife on trial for killing her husband.” – Peter Travers, ABC News
“Surprisingly gripping for a film devoid of real action, this family drama masquerading as a murder-mystery touches on universal marital tensions; it is both enigmatic and very human.” – Laura Venning, Empire Magazine
“Triet builds a taut did-she-do-it tension while also working in discomfiting questions about marital power dynamics and how much an artist’s work really reveals about their character.” – Raphael Abraham, Financial Times
