      Rosie

      2022 1h 30m Comedy Drama List
      93% Tomatometer 14 Reviews A film about family, love, and misfits, ROSIE tells the story of a young, orphaned, Indigenous girl who is forced to live with her reluctant, street-smart Aunty Fred (Frédérique). Rosie is thrust into the fringes of 1980's Montréal into the care of Fred, who just lost her job, is on the verge of eviction, and who looks and sounds nothing like her. Fred, an artist who creates art from found and discarded objects or other peoples' trash, introduces Rosie to her two best friends Flo and Mo, glamorous, gender-bending street workers. In the end, Rosie transforms the lives of these colorful characters and finds love, acceptance, and a true HOME with her new chosen family of glittering outsiders. Read More Read Less

      Amil Niazi Globe and Mail While quite a few films have grappled with this idea, few recent ones have done so with as much heart or charm as this one by Canadian writer-director Gail Maurice. Nov 10, 2022 Full Review Drew Gregory Autostraddle I thought we were at a point where trans actors were at least cast in the poorly written trans parts, but I guess not! Sep 25, 2022 Full Review Carey-Ann Pawsey Orca Sound Set in Montreal in the 1980s, this will be a hoot for locals who were alive at that time. Waves of nostalgia will come washing over you. That along with the humour makes for a very watchable film. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 13, 2022 Full Review Dorothy Woodend The Tyee (British Columbia) It’s clunky in spots with a predictable plot, and features acting that ranges from passable to a bit cringey. But at its heart, the film is sweet, good-natured and well-intentioned. And for those qualities, a great deal is forgivable. Nov 11, 2022 Full Review Chris Knight National Post A sweet but a bit too on-the-nose story of a group of merry misfits finding love and, yes, family on the streets of Montreal circa 1984. Rated: 3/5 Nov 11, 2022 Full Review Anne Brodie What She Said Rosie An authentic performance by Bray reveals her split feelings about being a mum to Rosie, and as a defiant, frustrating, and reckless person who doesn’t realise she has been given a gift. Feature debut of Métis filmmaker/actor Gail Maurice. . Rated: 3/4 Nov 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
