Halifax filmmaker Thom Fitzgerald’s latest oeuvre, Cloudburst, is opening in theatres across Canada this weekend.
The film stars Olympia Dukakis, Brenda Fricker and Nova Scotia native Ryan Doucette. Fitzgerald has lovingly called the film a “geriatric lesbian road movie.” It has played at and won accolades in film festivals around the world.
Here in Nova Scotia, the film will be screening in Yarmouth, where this evening co-star Ryan Doucette will be presenting the film.
