“Incredibly Affecting and Charming” - Indiewire

MOLLY MAXWELL, the latest film from CFC Features opens in Toronto for a limited engagement at the Carlton Cinema on April 19.

At Phoenix Progressive School, where everyone tries to outdo each other with creative self-expression, 16-year-old Molly Maxwell (Lola Tash) would rather be invisible than risk revealing herself as completely ordinary. When her young, handsome, disillusioned English teacher (Charlie Carrick) enters the picture and allows her to just be herself, Molly is suddenly able to flourish. As their student-teacher bond becomes more intimate, she begins putting herself on the line in unexpected ways while pursuing what she wants. But with each awkward, beautiful step towards an impossible romance, Molly risks alienating everyone she loves.

The Friday 6:45 p.m. screening will have an introduction by the film's director, Sara St. Onge as well as the main cast. Following the screening the First Weekend Club is hosting a reception at Pogue Mahone's (777 Bay Street) with MOLLY MAXWELL's stars and filmmakers.

Saturday night's 6:45 p.m. showing will have an after screening Q & A with director, Sara St. Onge and actors Lola Tash and Charlie Carrick.

Screening times from Friday through Thursday at the Carlton Cinema: 1:25 p.m., 4:05, 6:45, and 9:05 p.m.

Executive Produced by the CFC's Justine Whyte, MOLLY MAXWELL is written and directed by Sara St. Onge, produced by Aeschylus Poulos, John Nadalin, and Mark Van de Ven, and edited by Stephen Philipson ('02). Starring are Lola Tash, CFC Actors Conservatory alumnus Charlie Carrick ('11), Krista Bridges, and Rob Stewart.
