Reuniting at their family home in the Îles-de-la-Madeleine, four estranged brothers agree to put aside their differences to pay one final tribute to their father. But when youngest brother Nicolas (Arnaud) loses their father’s ashes, it sets off all the old bickering and family squabbles once more. As their reunion begins to go hilariously off the rails, the brothers rediscover the power of their family bond, and the effort it takes to maintain it.
The latest comedy from filmmaker Ken Scott (Starbuck), Au Revoir Le Bonheur is a heartfelt and fun film driven by outstanding performances from an all-star cast.

As his girlfriend announces her pregnancy, David Wozniak (Huard), a forty-something slacker, receives other life-changing news: 142 people, all of them the result of artificial insemination from sperm he donated 21 years earlier, have filed a class action lawsuit against the mysterious “Starbuck,” their biological father.
David’s life is fast falling apart — he’s in trouble with local thugs and owes a lot of money – but his unwitting support network of children, none of whom know who David really is, give him hope to carry on as he visits them in their daily lives.
Full of heart and with tons of laughs, this French Canadian contemporary classic was remade two years later in America under the title of Delivery Man — but with its blockbusting original release, we’d argue you shouldn’t mess with perfect!

Known to the world as ‘La Bolduc,’ singer-songwriter Mary Rose-Anne Bolduc, along with Félix Leclerc, can be credited with the revitalization of the Quebec folk genre in the 20th century. This biopic tells the story of Bolduc, whose lively on-stage personality and culturally-influenced musical style made her a hit with working-class audiences in the 1930s.
La Bolduc was one of the highest-grossing Canadian films of 2018 and was a nominee for the Prix Iris for Best Film.
