When you sit down at the Arden Theater for a Reel Mondays movie, you already know you’re about to see something special, not another Tom Cruise action movie.

“Our audience is now well aware of what we offer. It’s an eclectic audience. Rarely have we heard someone say, “I wish you hadn’t had that movie,” said Valerie Spink, spokesperson and one of the founding members of the Friends of St. Albert Public Library. , the presenter of the seasonal film series. .

Friends have announced their new lineup for the Fall 2022 season and, true to form, all four titles seek to tell tales of relationship drama, bridging heartwarming cross-cultural gaps, and all kinds of goodies.

The first on the marquee will be I love Sarah September 12. In London’s Notting Hill, a young woman strives to make her mother’s dream of opening a bakery come true, but can’t do it alone. This is where his grandmother and an old friend put on their aprons and thinking caps.

A stellar cast of accomplished actors – including Jessica Chastain in her Oscar-winning performance – brings Tammy Faye’s eyes on screen October 3. If you don’t know who Tammy Faye Bakker and her televangelist husband Jim were, here’s the answer to your prayers. Andrew Garfield plays Jim while Vincent d’Onofrio embodies the character of Jerry Falwell. Note: this film is not to be confused with the fabulous 2000 documentary of the same name.

Mothers Day happens on a Monday—November 7, that is. The story of a complicated love affair during World War I is notable for giving Olivia Colman and Colin Firth excellent split-screen time, as well as featuring nudity and explicit sex scenes. .

But that doesn’t worry Spink.

“The general consensus is that our audience is a different demographic. We’ve lived seeing all the bits and bobs and dangling bits. We can live with that. It might not be necessary all the time, but that’s part of the story.

Despite the content, it is rated 14A in Alberta. The others are rated PG (although I love Sarah has not been evaluated in this province).

The last to draw the curtains will be chocolate peacea film that is sure to please audiences on December 12. A Syrian refugee struggles to settle into his new Canadian life in Antigonish, he struggles to navigate his life between the chocolatiers he inherited from his family and his own dream of becoming a doctor.

It’s decidedly a low-budget film, but it’s a film by Spink’s heart: it’s based on a true story of refugees making a success of their new lives.

“That’s what we do well in Canada,” she said. “It’s a feel-good film. And it’s a December movie, so it’ll be perfect for the Christmas season.
