TIFF OnScreen at the JET

Don't miss the final film in the Spring TIFF Film Circuit lineup! Tickets are $12 and available for purchase at the JET box office in-person or online. This screening is presented in partnership with TIFF Film Circuit, its sponsors and supporters, Create Halton Hills and the Halton Hills Public Library.


April 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the JET

In this remake of the 1952 film Ikiru, director Oliver Hermanus teams with Nobel- and Booker Prize-winning author Kazuo Ishiguro to renew a classic. Mr. Williams (Bill Nighy) is a buttoned-down, pinstripe-and-bowler hat- clad stereotypical English gentleman in 1952, with a mid-level bureaucratic job in a postwar London county council. One day Williams receives a dire diagnosis from his doctor and soon the tightly held reins of his very prosaic life begin to loosen.
