AROUND TOWN

MOVIE MONDAY
Eric Martin Pavilion
Saturday Oct 27 7pm SATURDAY LIVE!
MY OWN PRIVATE ETOBICOKE Eufemia Fantetti brings her play about surviving a childhood rife with secrets, superstition, and schizophrenia to the MM Theatre. See our site for details.

Oct 29 CRACKED NOT BROKEN
With Director Paul Perrier by phone
Cracked Not Broken opens a disturbing window on the life of Lisa, a 37-year-old crack-cocaine addict and estranged mother of one who prostitutes herself to fuel her costly drug habit. Although she grew up in an upper middle-class family, went to the right schools and had the right friends, something went terribly wrong. Filmed almost entirely in the Toronto hotel room she lives in and works out of, Cracked Not Broken portrays a highly intelligent, vivacious, articulate and hyperactive woman juggling cell phone and drug paraphernalia with equal dexterity while talking with incredible frankness to filmmaker Paul Perrier.
