Thanks to mike for mailing me this info. I would have done it as a meetup but i am unavailable that day. If anyone wants to coordinate with others going please let me know and i can schedule it. Until that time it's a FYI for those that are interested to check out. The movie has some very good actors and seems to be done well. i'll have to watch it at another screening next time. I would recommend anyone that is interested in Canadian history to check it out and let us know how it was.
