Married Again

Aug 11, 2010

As if there weren’t already enough to anticipate about the upcoming 2010 Toronto International Film Festival (we posted about the new headquarters yesterday), it was announced today that A Married Couple, Allan King’s devastatingly entertaining 1969 documentary (or “actuality drama,” to use King’s more precise term) will show in a special restored version as part of the September event’s Canadian Open Vault section. The film—called by the TIFF website “one of the most influential and celebrated Canadian films ever made”—is being shown in conjunction with the publication of a new University of Toronto Press monograph by communications professor Zoë Druick. A Married Couple, which plunges the viewer into the middle of the daily routines and shouting matches of the unforgettable Billy and Antoinette Edwards, will be available as part of the Eclipse series The Actuality Dramas of Allan King in September—truly a Kingly month.
