A joint presentation by the Shuswap Film Society and Salmar Cinemas.

Based on the novel by Ann Patchett, the story mirrors the real life events of the 1996/7 Japanese Embassy hostage crisis in Lima, Peru. The hostages and rebels find themselves trapped for weeks and start to form a bond, learning more about each other and bridging both culture and language. This movie is equally uplifting and heart-breaking. The opera diva is played with panache by Julianne Moore, her singing voice dubbed by Renee Fleming.
