And the Birds Rained Down (Il pleuvait des oiseaux)

Fri 6 March 2020

Louise Archambault’s beautiful adaptation of the bestselling novel is a poignant tale of love, loss and the price of independence. Three elderly men live off the grid in woodland cabins in the Quebec countryside. Their lifestyle is threatened by age and infirmity. Gertrude (Andrée Lachapelle) has spent her adult life unjustly locked up in an institution. Liberated by a sympathetic nephew, she is entrusted to these sympathetic strangers who grant her a first chance at life. Expertly acted by its veteran cast this is a tale full of warmth, understanding and compassion.
