Riceboy Sleeps

WEDNESDAY APRIL 5, 4pm & 7pm

Riceboy Sleeps – an intriguing title, wouldn’t you say? Exactly who is Riceboy? And why is he sleeping? Following a family tragedy, a young woman and her child move to Canada from Korea, where all their resources are needed to contend with the social prejudices they encounter. Insightful direction, strong cast performances, and British Columbia locales make for an engaging story on how family ties can run deep but seldom smoothly. “Riceboy Sleeps is Canada’s next great coming-of-age movie.” Pat Mullen, That Shelf. (English, Korean, Unrated, 1 hour and 57 minutes).
