Welcome to the 2016 Willson Oakville Film Festival schedule. To choose from our exciting selection of Canadian and International films, including many premieres, go straight to the Film Schedule below.
Based on Colin Harrison’s acclaimed novel Manhattan Nocturne (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year), MANHATTAN NOCTURNE tells the story of Porter Wren (Adrien Brody), a New York City tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy and anything that passes for the truth. At home he is a model family man, devoted to his loving wife (Jennifer Beals). But when a seductive stranger (Yvonne Strahovski) asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her filmmaker husband Simon (Campbell Scott), he can’t resist. In this modern version of a classic film noir, we follow Porter as he is drawn into a case of sexual obsession and blackmail — one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life.
In attendance for audience questions will be the director, Brian DeCubellis & Amelie McKendry will be attending who played featured, “Not Caroline.” Adrien Brody thinks she’s Caroline his love interest but he realizes she’s not really Caroline. She also plays Yvonne Strahovsky’s body double.
