Is the unexamined life worth living??
Jim Broadbent stars as Tony, a man quite comfortable in his present existence, who receives a nudge from the past which causes him to search not only in his memories, but also the value of the life he has led. Based on the bestselling, Man Booker prize-winning novel by Julian Barnes, director Ritesh Batra also considers how we edit our memories and construct our identities, much like a piece of storytelling. With the nuanced acting of a very adept cast of Brits (in addition to Broadbent: Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer) this thoughtful, and thought-provoking movie may lead you to wonder about your past and how you have shaped your memories.

Muskoka Arts and Crafts
Muskoka Arts & Crafts is the true heart of visual arts in the province’s favourite vacation area. One of Ontario’s oldest and most well established arts organizations, MAC has grown since its inception in 1963 to include nearly 400 artists and arts supporters, and has become an innovative force in the community at large. For artists, it is one of the benefits of living in Muskoka, a source of support through like-minded people that fosters creative growth and a feeling of community. In turn, the promotion of the arts has made Muskoka a vibrant and culturally engaged destination for visitors, local residents and summer residents alike. Muskoka Arts & Crafts is a non-profit organization that is financially self-supporting.
Its annual Christmas, Spring Members’ and Who Art Thou events feature the work of its many members, and the Chapel Gallery in Bracebridge, Muskoka Arts & Crafts’ home, hosts an ongoing cycle of juried exhibitions by local and visiting artists. The Summer Show, a feature in the community for 47 years, attracts hundreds of artists from across the country, and is visited each year by over 20,000 people. In April of 2008, an initiative launched by Muskoka Arts & Crafts culminated in the Muskoka District Council declaring the District Municipality of Muskoka as a Designated Arts Community, a testament to the vitality of the area’s arts scene and its potential as a fundamental building block for year-round art tourism in Muskoka. MAC also produce the annual Muskoka Arts & Crafts’ Guidebook, a beautiful full colour publication that will be the definitive guide to visual arts in the area.
