    cinemadaily | "The Last Station" Stops Off in US

    Telluride and Toronto standout and Indie Spirit nomination leader "The Last Station" is coming to the US this weekend in limited release.

The North is more than an idea and more than a place: It's an obstacle course that takes a village to conquer. And the village goes missing in Before Tomorrow, an Inuit drama set in the dangerous isolation of the High Arctic," starts Canada's National Post review of "Before Tomorrow" by Jay Stone. The film, which won Best Canadian First Feature at TIFF ...
