GUEST OF HONOUR—Atom Egoyan’s ingeniously layered take on unreliable narrators and fatal misapprehension—stars David Thewlis as a restaurant health inspector and Laysla De Oliveira as his daughter Veronica, a former high school music teacher imprisoned for an unprofessional incident with a student. Told in flashback as Veronica confers with Father Greg (Luke Wilson) about a funeral eulogy, the film is streaming now on Kino Lorber’s Kino Marquee.
This weekend the American Cinematheque, Canada Now, and the Armenian Film Society present a virtual Q & A with Egoyan and Thewlis.
