‘The Twentieth Century’ Gets a Poster and Trailer!

The Twentieth Century, the feature debut of acclaimed short filmmaker Matthew Rankin, is inspired by German expressionist cinema, 1940s melodrama, and wartime propaganda films, was a massive critical hit at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, where it debuted in the Midnight Madness section and won the festival’s prestigious Award for Best Canadian First Feature Film. It was nominated for eight Canadian Screen Awards and won three, won Best Film at the 2019 Los Cabos International Film Festival, and secured the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival.

Toronto, 1899. Aspiring young politician Mackenzie King (Dan Beirne) dreams of becoming the Prime Minister of Canada. But his romantic vacillation between a British soldier and a French nurse, exacerbated by a fetishistic obsession, may well bring about his downfall. In his quest for power, King must gratify the expectations of his imperious Mother, the hawkish fantasies of a war-mongering Governor-General, and the utopian idealism of a Québécois mystic before facing one, final test of leadership. Culminating in an epic battle between good and evil, King learns that disappointment may be the defining characteristic of the twentieth century!

 From Oscilloscope Laboratories, the film opens on November 20th
