Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slow-mo sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two tickets to see Tamara Drewe presented by the Barrie Film Festival at Bayfield 7 Cinemas (an $18 value). The not-for-profit Barrie Film Festival organizes year-round screenings of international cinema and documentaries to elicit local interest and social awareness. On February 2 at 9:15 p.m., their monthly Screen One film series shows the latest from Stephen Frears, director of The Queen and High Fidelity. This frisky bedroom farce based on a comic strip serial by Posy Simmonds that was based on Thomas Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd revolves around a vamp with a freshly revamped nose who returns to her quaint hometown after the death of her mother.

Tamara Drewe received a British rating of 14A for coarse language and some sexuality and is not recommended for young or sensitive viewers.

Reviews

NPR and the New York Times reviewed Tamara Drewe positively.

  • Tamara Drewe is a saucy little number, expertly gussied up with flying pink desserts, homicidal cows, split screens, a deliciously sharp screenplay by Moira Buffini, an emotionally versatile score by Alexandre Desplat, and copious flashbacks to fill us in on the festering vanities and resentments that laid the groundwork for this face-off between massively deluded egos. – Ella Taylor, NPR
  • It does not insult the intelligence of the audience — on the contrary, it flatters the viewer’s sense of sophistication without being at all esoteric or difficult — and it is refreshingly candid about sex. – A.O. Scott, the New York Times
