R

It’s the age of The Wild West, circa 1870. An affluent pioneer, Samuel Alabaster (Robert Pattinson) ventures deep into the American wilderness to reunite with and marry the love of his life, Penelope (Mia Wasikowska). For his journey he brings Butterscotch, a miniature horse intended as a wedding present for his bride, and enlists drunkard Parson Henry (David Zellner) to conduct the ceremony. As they traverse the lawless frontier their once simple journey grows treacherous, and the lines between hero, villain, and damsel are blurred.

A loving reinvention of the western genre from the Zellner brothers (Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter), DAMSEL showcases their trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor, and unique brand of humanism.

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

NR

Fred Rogers led a singular life. He was a puppeteer. A minister. A musician. An educator. A father, a husband, and a neighbor. Fred Rogers spent 50 years on children’s television beseeching us to love and to allow ourselves to be loved. With television as his pulpit, he helped transform the very concept of childhood. He used puppets and play to explore the most complicated issues of the day—race, disability, equality and tragedy. He spoke directly to children and they responded by forging a lifelong bond with him—by the millions. And yet today his impact is unclear. WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? explores the question of whether or not we have lived up to Fred's ideal. Are we all good neighbors?

GIANTS Season Two Sneak Preview

Featuring Q&A with director James Bland

7:30 p.m. July 20

Empire star Jussie Smollett serves as executive producer of Giants, a coming of adulthood drama series streaming on Issa Rae’s (HBO’s Insecure) YouTube Channel. Created by actor, writer, director James Bland, the series follows three black millennials (Malachi, Journee and Ade) each battling their own inner giant as they approach the age 30.

The series transcends the typical coming of age story by pushing new boundaries of very real issues including mental health, sexual identity, religious skepticism and unorthodox methods of economic survival.

The first season has accumulated over 800,000 views across its six-episode arc on YouTube and a video of series star Vanessa Baden Kelly discussing how Christians and the black community often trivialize mental illness has soared to 3.2 million views on Facebook. The viewership has shown that there’s an audience seeking diverse content that speaks to their experience and gives voice to stigmatized issues often battled in silence.

The Beatles: Yellow Submarine

The Beatles: Yellow Submarine

NR

An icon of psychedelic pop culture, Yellow Submarine is a colourful musical spectacle and an exhilaratingly joyful cinematic experience for all ages – filled with visual invention, optical illusions, word play, and glorious, glorious music.

Once upon a time….or maybe twice….there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, 80,000 leagues under the sea it lay, a place where beauty, happiness, and music reign supreme.

But this peaceful harmony is shattered when the Blue Meanies invade with their army of storm bloopers, apple bonkers, snapping turtle turks, and the menacing flying glove in an attempt to stop the music and drain Pepperland of all colour and hope. So it’s The Beatles to the rescue, as our animated heroes team up with Young Fred and the Nowhere Man and journey across seven seas to free Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, make peace with the Meanies, and restore music, colour, and love to the world.

But beyond all the glorious music, Yellow Submarine is a landmark in animation, with Heinz Edelmann’s inspired art direction conjuring up a non-stop parade of wildly different styles and techniques. From the paper-doll residents of Pepperland, to the tinted photography of the soot covered roofs and smokestacks Liverpool, the menagerie of fanciful characters in the Sea of Monsters, the kaleidoscopic colour-splashed rotoscoping of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, the vertigo inducing op-art of the Sea of Holes, and the triumphant euphony of the It’s All Too Much finale, the film is simply a joy.

RODENTS OF UNUSUAL SIZE

6 p.m. August 26

Featuring filmmaker Q&A

Hard headed Louisiana fisherman Thomas Gonzales doesn't know what will hit him next. After decades of hurricanes and oil spills he faces a new threat - hordes of monstrous 20 pound swamp rats. Known as “nutria," these invasive South American rodents breed faster than the roving squads of hunters can control them.

And with their orange teeth and voracious appetite they are eating up the coastal wetlands that protect Thomas and his town of Delacroix Island from hurricanes. But the people who have lived here for generations are not the type of folks who will give up without a fight. Thomas and a pack of lively bounty hunters are hellbent on saving Louisiana before it dissolves beneath their feet.

It is man vs. rodent. May the best mammal win.

THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE is an intimate, funny and surprising look at Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of "Vogue" magazine for 20 years, and her team of larger-than-life editors as they create this must-have Bible of fashion.

Filmmaker R.J. Cutler explores the untouchable glamour of Wintour's Vogue to reveal the extraordinarily passionate people at its heart.

At the eye of this annual fashion hurricane is the two-decade relationship between Wintour and Grace Coddington, incomparable creative director and fashion genius.
