Take Me To The River!

Netflix viewers quickly fell in love with Virgin River when it debuted on the streaming service in December 2019. Adapted from the Virgin River novels by author Robyn Carr, the romantic drama stars Alexandra Breckenridge as Melinda “Mel” Monroe, a midwife and nurse practitioner from Los Angeles who moves to a beautiful but remote Northern California town following a series of traumatic heartbreaks. Monroe soon discovers that small-town living isn’t quite as simple as she expected and that she must learn to heal herself before she can truly make Virgin River her home.

The mark of a good show is when it leaves fans wanting more — and season 1 of Virgin River did just that. The heartwarming, Hallmark-worthy drama was full of twists and turns right up until the very end.

In Season 2 The Reel World Management-produced show picks up some time after “Mel” left the fictional and titular town at the end of the first season. Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson), had just declared his love for Mel after learning that he is expecting a child with his friend with benefits, Charmaine (Lauren Hammersley).

Joining the regular cast is Grayson Gurnsey (Game On), who previously recurred in the first season. Gurnsey continues to portray ‘Ricky’, a clean-cut, nice-looking teenager who works at the local tavern owned by ‘Jack’ (Henderson), living with his grandmother after the loss of his parents. Upon the arrival of this beautiful newcomer into town, he struggles between being a good kid and finding the confidence to make his own choices. Tim Matheson, Annette O’Toole, Jenny Cooper, Colin Lawrence, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Sarah Dugdale and Daniel Gillies also star.

Fans of Virgin River have been (not-so-) patiently waiting for almost a year to find out the release date for the second season of the romantic drama. Netflix announced in mid October that Season 2 of Virgin River will debut Friday, Nov. 27, right in time for the long Thanksgiving weekend. It will consist of 10 episodes.

Naika Toussaint and Lisa Huynh have finished shooting roles in the upcoming feature film, ‘Change of Pace’.

Director: Shel Piercy

Change of Pace is an all-Canadian motion picture, set and filmed in the city of Penticton. The production is inspired by a 60-minute, Super-8 film that Suitcase Charlie Films owner Graham Fraser and Mike Drinkwater shot in their final year of high school in 1980. Now, nearly 40 years later, Fraser’s son, Luke Fraser, has written a new script, partnering with the pair to re-envision the original screenplay.

Toronto native Eric McCormack will star in the film.

Change of Pace is a love letter to Canada. It is a modern, coming-of-age film that pays homage to the 80’s with a quirky, and relatable, cast of characters. The film encompasses the appreciation of Penticton, B.C. and the charm and community it offers; including the breathtaking beauty of the Okanagan landscape, which stands out as its own character in the film.

The film’s narrative follows Mike Freshwater, an awkward high school student having trouble fitting in during his final year at Penticton Secondary School. His offbeat father, Hank, spends more time defrauding the government than paying attention to his son. Mike’s lack of direction takes a turn when he meets Wallace, a reserved new kid from Toronto. As graduation nears, Wallace helps Mike train for an annual, cross-country race, while Mike guides Wallace through an unfamiliar, small-town environment.

Directing the feature will be Canadian Stephen Campanelli, who has a lengthy history working with Clint Eastwood that earned him the nickname “Clint’s Eye“.

In 2015, Campanelli made his directorial debut with the action film Momentum, filmed in South Africa and featuring Morgan Freeman.

“We are truly honoured to have a director of this caliber at the helm of Change of Pace and know that Stephen will capture the true essence of hope and resilience at the heart of this story,” Fraser said.

In this teen grad dramedy, Mike Freshwater, with no particular athletic skills and no prospects for university, is desperately in love with Danielle (Danny), the prettiest and most unattainable girl in his class. With the help of his new-found friend Wallace, a sensible girl with huge smarts, he pits himself against Danny’s boyfriend, the school jock who wins everything, in the final Runner’s Challenge of the graduating class.


That “Piercing” Look…

Kurt Ostlund returns in Season 2 of Snowpiercer.

Snowpiercer kicked off New York Comic Con with a (virtual) bang, revealing the Season 2 release date and a new trailer during the show’s panel on October 8, 2020.
Season 2 will premiere Monday, January 25th 2020 at 9 PM on TNT Drama.

The show is based on both the 2013 South Korean–Czech film of the same name, directed by Bong Joon-ho, and the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, from which the film was adapted, by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette.

The dystopian drama follows the survivors of a cataclysmic weather event who are rigidly separated into classes on a 1,001-car, high-speed train that endlessly circles a frozen world.

The political environment and the questions that are being raised in the show, reflect questions we are asking ourselves now in terms of how we run a just society, how democracy works, where it doesn’t work, themes of social justice and injustice. A lot of those things in the current milieu are reflected in the show.

The second season of the post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller will follow the revolution’s survivors, led by Layton (Daveed Diggs), as they attempt to maintain peace among the recently merged classes. But an emerging power struggle threatens the already-fragile ecosystem.

The Haunting of Bly Manor is an American supernatural horror drama web television series, created by Mike Flanagan for Netflix, and loosely based on Henry James’s 1898 novella The Turn of the Screw. It is the follow-up series to The Haunting of Hill House and the second entry in The Haunting anthology series. The creative team and much of the cast of Hill House returned for Bly Manor, but the two series’ narratives are not connected.

The Haunting of Bly Manor stars Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, T’Nia Miller, Rahul Kohli, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Amelie Smith and Amelia Eve.

Just over a year ago, “The Haunting of Hill House” premiered on Netflix, giving us the chilling story of the Crain family and their twisted relationship with the show’s central, spooky dwelling.

The retelling of Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel of the same name, The Haunting of Hill House’s first season averaged a 93 percent fresh Tomatometer rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and earned a 91 percent approval rating from the audience, becoming one of the streamer’s most-binged shows of that year.
