Film THE SENSE OF AN ENDING 2017-05-12 19:00:00


Directed by Ritesh Batra; UK, 2017, 109 min; PG

Starring Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery.

Memory is a tricky thing and sometimes what we thought we knew turns out to be not quite the case. Such as the ways life unfolds for an aging Englishman as the past intrudes into the present. Ritesh Batra (‘The Lunchbox’) adapts Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize-winning novel into a contemplative but compelling tale about regret, remorse and redemption.

As always, Jim Broadbent is a joy to behold. He’s Tony Webster, who’s semi-retired but operates a specialty camera shop in part because of a young woman named Veronica he knew during his halcyon days at university.

News of an inheritance, along with the diary of a long-departed college friend who died by suicide, throws Webster’s life into turmoil. Two parallel stories unfold, with the past and present seeming to collide and merge, as Webster seeks to find a measure of inner peace.

The cast is uniformly solid, including Charlotte Rampling, who delivers a subtle but powerful performance as the mysterious Veronica and Harriet Walter as Tony’s tart-tongued ex-wife Margaret. Be prepared for unexpected twists. –Toronto Star

“’Ending” looks terrific, suffused as it is with British manners and everything-in-its-placeness. It’s a cozy movie with a decidedly un-cozy message — about the perils of resuscitating our pasts, and the even bigger risk of leaving them be.” –Washington Post

“The movie is ultimately Broadbent's showcase, and he shoulders the dramatic burden with sly, curmudgeonly expertise.”Los Angeles Times

“Anglophiles and graying art house aficionados represent the main audience for this well-acted drama flecked with quiet humor.”The Hollywood Reporter

Origin Stories

First Nations Prints and Carvings

Guest curated by Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) with Gillian Booth and Katie Hughes.

As Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Legacy Art Galleries respectfully acknowledges a much longer history by presenting First Nations narratives that move beyond limited settler versions of history. Through prints and carvings chosen by guest curator, Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) from the Fort Nelson First Nation, the exhibition explores centuries-old stories that continue to live in the people, communities, nations and lands of this place.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-12 10:00

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.
