Best in Canadiana
As Canada Day approaches, we’d like to thank our country for delivering so much artistic talent. Here are some of our fave.
We loved the quiet drama of Late Nights on Air, so we’re looking forward to cracking the spine of Elizabeth Hay’s newest offering, Alone in the Classroom, a multi-generational tale exploring the origins of love and hate. At www.indigo-chapters.ca
From the Sound of Music to his latest role as a gay man who comes out of the closet in his seventies in Beginners, Christopher Plummer is a class Canadian act. It doesn’t hurt that Ewan McGregor co-stars in this film about love and discovery. Now playing at the AMC Forum.
No matter what we think of her kooky outfits, Shania Twain has always stood out as a strong, sexy female artist, who has emerged from heartache only to sing again. We’re picking up her autobiography, From This Moment On, taking us on her journey from Eilleen Twain in Timmons, to country legend Shania. $14.99 at Amazon.ca
Happy Canada Day! —JN
