Oliver Sacks: His Own Life – Documentary
A month after receiving a fatal diagnosis in January 2015, Oliver Sacks sat down for a series of filmed interviews in his apartment in New York City. For eighty hours, surrounded by family, friends, and notebooks from six decades of thinking and writing about the brain, he talked about his life and work, his abiding sense of wonder at the natural world, and the place of human beings within it. Drawing on these deeply personal reflections, as well as nearly two dozen interviews with close friends, family members, colleagues and patients, and archival material from every point in his life, this film is the story of a beloved doctor and writer who redefined our understanding of the brain and mind.

“I had no idea until I actually viewed this documentary how amazing I am,” said Mandel in an unsolicited quote.
“Howie is an incredible storyteller, and a strong and insightful contributor to conversations about mental health, including in his role as Bell Let’s Talk spokesperson, so we’re grateful that we are able to share his life and experience with Canadians,” said Mike Cosentino, President, Content and Programming. “A candid yet hilarious film that the entire family can enjoy, it is the perfect complement to CTV’s already robust fall lineup.”
“Howie represents a rich and long tradition of Canadian superstar comedians and is easily one of this country’s national treasures. I wanted to go beyond the obvious hilarity and ingenious, inventiveness of Howie’s comedy, giving us a candid and uncensored look at his personal life, his demons, and life behind the velvet curtain,” said Barry Avrich, Executive Producer and Director. “I truly believe this film gives audience’s access to another side of Howie Mandel they have never seen before: raw, intimate, and brilliant.”

Woody Allen’s ‘A Rainy Day In New York’ Debuts Nationwide 10/9
Posted on September 18, 2020, 9:00 am
MPI Media Group and Signature Entertainment recently announced the joint North American release of Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York. The romantic comedy, starring Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Diego Luna and Liev Schreiber will be released nationwide in select theaters starting October 9, 2020.
A Rainy Day in New York has been acclaimed as another engaging work in writer-director Woody Allen’s recent run of extraordinary films, including Café Society, Blue Jasmine and Midnight in Paris. Allen has gathered a splendid cast, featuring some of Hollywood’s most promising young stars including Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name, Little Women), Elle Fanning (The Roads Not Taken, The Beguiled) and Selena Gomez (The Dead Don’t Die, Spring Breakers).
A Rainy Day in New York tells the story of college sweethearts, Gatsby (Timothée Chalamet) and Ashleigh (Elle Fanning), whose plans for a romantic weekend together in New York City are dashed as quickly as the sunlight turns into showers. The two are soon parted, and each has a series of chance meetings and comical adventures while on their own.
Over the course of a dreamy and drizzly day in New York, Ashleigh discovers she might not be who she thought she was and Gatsby learns that while you only live once, once is enough if you find the right person.
The Daily Mirror gave A Rainy Day in New York five stars and said “Timothée Chalamet is excellent.” The Jewish Chronicle said the film is “brilliantly acted” and “charmingly whimsical” calling it a “true return to form for the legendary filmmaker.”
