MODERATE COARSE LANGUAGE, ADULT THEMES
Interweaving the past and present, one man seeks redemption from a family he abandoned.
Starring two-time academy award nominated Sir Ian McKellen, Emile is the poignant exploration of an older man’s struggle to reconnect with his past.
From the director of Johnny (1999) and Lola (2001) comes the third chapter of films dealing with a character’s search for identity at a critical point in life.
When Emile (Ian McKellen) is given the opportunity to travel from England to Victoria on Canada’s west coast to receive an honorary degree at the university, he goes knowing that it might be his last chance to reconnect with his only living relatives. His niece Nadia (Deborah Kara Unger) and her daughter Maria (Theo Crane) hold the key to Emile’s tragic past and the guilt which has haunted him his entire life.
With a cast that includes Tygh Runyan, Chris William Martin and Ian Tracey, Emile is an artful and touching portrait of one man’s redemption.
