Love & Human Remains
This modern, dark comedy is about people searching for love and family in an era where relationships are not as clearly defined as either hetero or homosexual. The film focuses on roommates/ex-lovers David (Thomas Gibson, TV's “Dharma and Greg” and “Criminal Minds”), a cynical actor-turned-waiter, and Candy (Ruth Marshall), an ever-hopeful book reviewer, and their hilarious, often-poignant entanglements with a psychic dominatrix (Mia Kirshner, The Black Dahlia and TV's “The L Word”), a bartender (Rick Roberts), a lesbian schoolteacher (Joanne Vannicola), a seventeen-year-old busboy (Matthew Ferguson), and a misogynistic yuppie (Cameron Bancroft). All of this takes place within an urban landscape where a serial killer is attacking young women. Denys Arcand is the director of the 2003 Oscar®-winning Best Foreign Language Film The Barbarian Invasions, and Best Foreign Language Film Oscar®-nominees Jesus of Montreal (1989) and The Decline of the American Empire (1986). Newly remastered.
