  • Diplomacy

    November - Diplomacy

    Summer of 1944. General von Choltitz (Niels Arestrup) is assigned by Adolf Hitler to destruct Paris. Swedish Consul General Raoul Nordling (André Dussollier) tries everything he can to stop the barbaric act.

  • The Outrageous Sophie Tucker

    November - The Outrageous Sophie Tucker

    The rags to riches story of Sophie Tucker, the iconic superstar who ruled the worlds of vaudeville, Broadway, radio, television, and Hollywood throughout the 20th century. Before Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Bette Midler, Marilyn Monroe, and Mae West, Sophie Tucker was the first woman to infatuate her audiences with a bold, bawdy and brassy style unlike any other. "A must see for anybody looking for the secret to getting ahead in life. The music is outstanding, but it’s the way that Sophie Tucker lived her life that is the most fascinating aspect. A shrewd business person, a caring individual, and a talent that continues to inspire." William Brownridge, Toronto Film Scene
