Monday Cinema: Rosie

February 6 4:00 to 5:30 pm

“A film about family, love, and misfits, ROSIE tells the story of a young, orphaned, Indigenous girl who is forced to live with her reluctant, street-smart Aunty Fred. Rosie is thrust into the fringes of1980’s Montréal into the care of Fred, who just lost her job, is on the verge of eviction, and who looks and sounds nothing like her. Fred, an artist who creates art from found and discarded objects or other peoples’ trash, introduces Rosie to her two best friends Flo and Mo, glamorous human beings who refuse to be confined by gender. In the end, Rosie transforms the lives of these colourful characters and finds love, acceptance, and a true HOME with her new chosen family of glittering outsiders.” - TIFF

“While quite a few films have grappled with this idea, few recent ones have done so with as much heart or charm as this one by Canadian writer-director Gail Maurice.” - Globe and Mail

“ROSIE reminds us that one can find community in the direst of situations, sometimes you just need to choose who that family will be.” - That Shelf

“An uplifting story of acceptance, self worth, and the art of embracing exactly who you were born to be. That’s a message the world certainly could use a bit more of.” - Screen Zealots
