Five fitting films for our time: quarantine viewing ideas

Friday, May 15, 2020 @ 12:10 PM

by Sue Sorensen

During this time of sheltering in place and homebound leisure activities, many of us are watching more films than usual. It's unfortunate that Netflix has such a stranglehold on today's film audience. A serious shortcoming is the almost complete absence of good movies more than a few years old. Netflix offers not a single film starring Katharine Hepburn or James Stewart; neither are there any films directed by Jane Campion or Billy Wilder.

None of my recommendations, below, are on that ubiquitous platform, but all can be inexpensively rented for a day on Google Play Movies. (If I can figure it out, anyone can.) One of these films (the wonderful Paterson) can be viewed at no cost on Kanopy, the excellent streaming service available with a Winnipeg Public Library card. (Other libraries may also subscribe to Kanopy.)

What do you love about your work here?

As much as I value the creativity of the arts, I have to admit, even to my musician friends, that I find it takes even more creativity to do administration. That's what I love about my current role; I love the range of people that I get to bring together, the ways I have to think forward when there's no template for how things should go. It's a wonderfully creative task for me!
