"AWAY FROM HER" TOPS THE GENIE AWARDS!!! 


Sarah Polley's "Away From Her" dominated the Genie Awards! Although the film tied with David Cronenberg's "Eastern Promises" in the number of awards won (7 wins for each), "Away From Her" won the big prize -- Best Picture!

The Genie is Canada's answer to the Oscars!

"Away From Her" also dominated the acting categories, as Gordon Pinsent won for best actor, Julie Christie earned the best actress crown and Kristen Thomson won for supporting actress.

I enjoyed this film, it's a bit depressing, but this Alzheimer's-themed movie is definitely thought provoking! Kudos to young actress Sarah Polley for showcasing her talent as a helmer!
