The Weekend To-Do: We’re savouring the second last weekend of summer by hitting Vancouver’s farmers markets, Montreal’s film festival and Toronto’s teen-inspired basement party
Farewell, My Queen
This costume drama tells the tale of the final days of the French Revolution from the perspective of one of the doomed Queen’s ladies-in-waiting, played by Midnight in Paris’s Léa Seydoux. Sit back, soak up the opulence of Versailles and compare Diane Kruger’s Marie Antoinette to Kirsten Dunst’s, all while practicing your français. Now if only they sold cake at the movies.
Junction Design Crawl
Hot on the heels of a wildly successful run of summer flea-market Sundays, the Junction Design Crawl takes place tonight with independent stores like Narwhal, Mjölk and Smash open into the evening. Our top pick is the heart-shaped Phillipa C Photography photobooth at Russet & Empire. Bring your crush’s address, write him/her a love letter and mail it with your photo. Good old-fashioned romance at its best.
7 pm – 11 pm, Aug. 24
Montreal World Film Festival
For the 36th consecutive year, Montreal’s film festival is bringing the world to downtown Montreal, this time with movies from more than 70 countries. Emphasizing cinematic quality over star power, one needn’t worry about fending off rabid Brangelina-crazed superfans in line at the concession stand.
Aug. 23 to Sept. 3
