Rockies Film Series Cranbrook

Mickey and the Bear

7 pm; Key City Theatre; Tickets $12. Tickets available online at keycitytheatre.com online or by phone 250-426-7006 or the box office. Sponsored by Bridge Interiors. Writer-director Annabelle Attanasio makes an astonishingly assured feature debut with “Mickey and the Bear,” a coming-of-age tale set in Anaconda, Mont., where 17-year-old Mickey (Camila Morrone) lives with her father Hank (James Badge Dale) in a cramped mobile home. As her dad’s chief caretaker — he’s an Iraq War veteran with trauma and addiction issues — Mickey’s daily routine is stretched between his needs, her classes as a high school senior and her after-school job at a local taxidermist’s shop. As this intimate, finely observed story unfolds, it becomes clear that her chief struggle lies in finding a path out of Anaconda — or at least away from her father’s volatile, boundary-less grasp — and ensuring that she won’t end up as a human version of the stuffed, mounted and glassy-eyed creatures she works on every day. This is the kind of small, great movie that goes largely unnoticed upon first release but gets discovered later. Later should start immediately.

Thursday, February 13

Rockies Film Series Cranbrook

Gaza

7 pm. Key City Theatre. Tickets $12. Tickets available online at keycitytheatre.com or by phone 250-426-7006 or the box office. Sponsored by Save-On Foods, Cranbrook. Directed by Garry Keane, Andrew McConnell. In this cinematic journey through Gaza we unfold a portrait of its ordinary people who attempt to lead meaningful lives beyond the rubble of perennial conflict. Gaza brings together an eloquent, resilient and courageous group of souls, whose struggle, resilience and sense of family goes to the very heart of humanity…a people whose lives are shaped by conflict but not defined by it. Whether some people want to accept reality or not, this documentary accurately portrays the hardships of the Palestinians of Gaza. We know who is responsible, but this film (rightly) focuses on the everyday lives of Palestinians to create a powerful and critical message to anyone concerned with humanity.
