Canada’s Top Ten: Closet Monster

Thu - Sat, Feb 18 - 20 / 9 pm
Directed by Stephen Dunn
2015, Canada, 90 min

Mixing affecting drama with whimsical fantasy and elements of Cronenbergian body horror, this ceaselessly inventive feature chronicles a teen’s struggle to find his own way of life. High-school student and aspiring special-effects makeup artist Oscar Madly needs out: out of the town that is stifling his budding creativity, and out of the closet. While he finds support from his best friend and his pet hamster (voiced by Isabella Rossellini), he is haunted by horrifying visions of the consequences of revealing his homosexuality—a fear compounded by his erratic father.

*Best Canadian Feature, Toronto International Film Festival
