Watch Mouthpiece, the best film of 2019, and our #3 film of the decade
From October 1-4, we’ll be streaming Mouthpiece free worldwide (except Canada) on our site. The film is currently only available in Canada and the US on VOD, so if you live elsewhere, this is your one and only opportunity to catch this amazing film.
If you’re a Book Club member, you’ll have a chance to watch Mouthpiece free before we go publish from Sept 28-30.
Plus, on October 4, we’ll be hosting a special edition of our live-steam series Lockdown Film School with director Patricia Rozema so you can ask her your questions about the film face-to-face.
What is Mouthpiece?
From acclaimed Canadian director Patricia Rozema (Mansfield Park, I’ve Heard The Mermaids Singing), Mouthpiece is a darkly comic film which follows Cassandra, a chaotic writer in her mid-twenties, as she reels in the aftermath of her mother’s unexpected death. This might sound like familiar territory for Rozema, who has enjoyed a long career examining the female psyche, but the film has a unique twist: Cassandra is played by two actresses simultaneously (Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava). Mouthpiece has been described as “a deeply moving piece of work” (Roger Ebert), “a truly revolutionary piece of filmmaking” (LA Times), and “bracingly sharp” (BFI). It’s also our favourite film of 2018 and our #3 film of the decade.
