MM's 23rd Anniversary!
with Actress/Singer Rebecca Jenkins and Joel Bakan

A 1940s romance about a young mother who pursues a dream of becoming a singer while her husband is serving in the military. The inevitable choice between loyalty to her husband and family, and the desire for independence propels this nostalgic love story to a climatic ending. Starring Rebecca Jenkins - and the film has been resurrected by Jenkins and husband Joel Bakan and re-mastered to a beautiful HiDef version by director Anne Wheeler. Pg Rebecca Jenkins

Rebecca Jenkins and Joel Bakan will be with us! Rebecca offered to come by to talk about her role in making this film and also to sing a few tunes from the film - and is bringing along husband Joel who is a renowned jazz guitarist. Joel is a law professor, writer of the book, and co-creator of the film version of The Corporation. Rebecca is my fave Canadian actress, illuminating many terrific Canadian and international films, special favourites of mine: Marion Bridge, Wilby Wonderful, A Whole Other Thing and the recent Stories We Tell. printable poster
