Exotica (18)

Film Details

Atom Egoyan’s stylish, hypnotic puzzle of a film centred around a strip-club where a group of characters intertwine and their histories and traumas are slowly revealed.

Francis (Bruce Greenwood) a deeply depressed tax auditor spends his evenings at Exotica obsessed with a young dancer, Christina (Mia Kirshner), with whom he has developed a curious emotional relationship. Around them are Christina’s former partner and club MC, Eric (Elias Koteas), Zoe (Arsinée Khanjian) the club’s owner who is pregnant by Eric, and Thomas (Don McKellar) a smuggler of rare bird eggs who is under investigation by Francis. As the story unfolds the characters are gradually deconstructed; flashbacks, reflections, and shifts in perspective continually re-frame our assumptions and give rise to new and unsettling implications.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Exotica was Atom Egoyan’s international and commercial breakthrough; with his latest film, Seven Veils due for release this year, its a perfect opportunity to see this signature work from one of cinema’s most acclaimed and distinctive auteurs.

KSc is proud to present this seminal film from an original 35mm release print.
