OPENING NIGHT FILM - Director Thom Fitzgerald and Academy Award Winner Brenda Fricker in Attendance!

Thom Fitzgerald's hit play has become a sparkling and starkly relevant big-screen adventure that deftly updates Thelma and Louise to the same-sex marriage debate, making the runaway couple elderly, to boot. With enough star power for several films—acclaimed actresses Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker share the leads—Cloudburst also sports a star-making turn from Ryan Doucette as a young hitchhiker who accompanies the in-flight duo. Dukakis and Fricker play Stella and Dot, respectively, two women who have lived together for 31 years on the coast of Maine. When Dot's granddaughter places Dot in a nursing home after a fall, away from her mate, Stella must break Dot out and make a dash for Nova Scotia, where gay and lesbian marriage is legal. Filled with earthy humour, touching moments and ravishing landscapes, Cloudburst sees Fitzgerald taking the margins towards the mainstream in a film richly full of compassion, wonder and humanity.

AFTER-PARTY to follow at Murrieta's Bar & Grill. ALL Opening Night Film ticketholders AND all REEL Deal Passholders are welcome!.
