Kamloops Film Series: Boychoir
April 9, 2015 @ 7:00 pm
From the Director of THE RED VIOLIN and THIRTY TWO SHORT FILMS ABOUT GLENN GOULD comes the story of a troubled preteen who ends up at the prestigious National BoyChoir Academy. Under the strict tutelage of the hardline choirmaster played by Dustin Hoffman, Stet finds his creative heart. Boychoir will have you swooning as voices converge in hymns — and cracking a smile when a joyous rap breaks out in the bathroom. Supported by a star-studded cast that includes Josh Lucas, Eddie Izzard, Debra Winger, and Kathy Bates (who nearly steals her every scene as the school’s headmistress), Wareing makes a marvellous debut as a kid who’s been through hell but has been granted a heavenly gift.
Boychoir is about the way that music can touch our lives — if only it’s given enough encouragement to come out and play.
