Film Fan Fridays for Friday April 21, 2006!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!

It thrills me to say this week we have a great Canadian film in wide release!! The Rocket, based on the life of hockey player Maurice Richard opens in multiple theatres all across the city! I am so excited not only because this does not happen often, but also because the film is excellent! I caught a sneak preview and I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. We also have 2 more Canadian releases this week with 3 Needles and Pure. Woohoo, go Canadian Film!!
