White Room

Canada, 1990

Bursting with charisma, incredible costumes and a youthful energy, White Room is a modern fairy tale and deeply personal film that tackles obsession, passion, and celebrity culture through a multitude of genres. Norman is a naive writer who stumbles upon a terrible incident involving a famous singer, wherein a series of events has him falling for a woman that has an unknown connection to the singer, while dealing with his own guilt of what he has seen. “White Room is a semi-unknown masterpiece … A queer-coded character drama about sensitivity, identity, and idealism, its deeply moving arc needs to be more widely seen” (Grant Phipps, Tone Madison).

DCP, color, 110 min. Director: Patricia Rozema. Writer: Patricia Rozema. With: Kate Nelligan, Maurice Godin, Margot Kidder.
