Run Woman Run

at The Royal Theatre, 1597 Bay Avenue, Trail.

Monday, November 28th @ 4 pm

The story of Beck, a single mom who learns how to reclaim her dreams, family and honour her life, all thanks to an unlikely coach. Beck (Dakota Ray Hebert) lives on the Six Nations reserve in Ontario. After falling into a diabetic coma she is visited by the spirit of Indigenous running legend Tom Longboat (Asivak Koostachin), who helps her to change her lifestyle and becomes her wise-cracking new life coach and personal trainer.

Equal parts funny and touching, this moving film perfectly captures grief, family, and triumph as Beck faces her mother’s death, allowing her to reconnect with her heritage. Run Woman Run took home top prize at the 2021 American Indian Film Festival, as well as the Audience Choice Award at the 2021 ImagineNative Festival.

“[Run Woman Run] succeeds on the strength of [Dakota Ray Hebert]... It’s a story that goes the distance.” - Chris Knight, National Post

Scarborough: December 5 - Over the course of one school year three kids growing up in a low-income neighbourhood find friendship and community in an unlikely place as they experience institutional violence and inequality. An unflinching but hopeful drama that shows the capacity for great triumph and great tragedy in this adaptation of the breathtaking novel by Catherine Hernandez.

Ali & Ava: December 12 - Using great music and infused with humour, Ali & Ava is a compelling contemporary romance that explores the developing relationship between the good natured and eccentric Ali and Ava, an Irish-born teacher and single mother of five. Both lonely for different reasons, they bond through their love of music, and find warmth, kindness, and humour with each other.
