Rhymes for Young Ghouls, the debut feature film by Canadian director Jeff Barnaby that garnered well-deserved praise on the film festival circuit this year, including a top ten film nod from TIFF, is opening this month at theatres in Canada’s three largest cities.
The movie is currently screening in Toronto at Cineplex (Younge & Dundas) and Vancouver’s Vancity Theatre, and kicks off in Montreal on February 28 at the Cineplex Forum and Ex-Centris.
Rhymes for Young Ghouls tells the grim story of an Aboriginal teenager who plots revenge against a sadistic Indian Agent, all the while guided by the spirits of her departed mother and brother.
Set on the fictional Red Crow Mi’gMaq reservation in 1976, the film explores Canada’s history of residential school abuses in a style the Globe and Mail calls “a supernatural teenage caper film.”
