Story


Starring two-time academy award nominated Sir Ian McKellen, "Emile" is the poignant exploration of an older man's struggle to reconnect with his past. From the director of "Johnny" (1999) and "Lola" (2001) comes the third chapter of films dealing with a character's search for identity at a critical point in life. When Emile (McKellen) is given the opportunity to travel from England to Victoria on Canada's west coat to receive an honorary degree at the university, he goes knowing that it might be his last chance to reconnect with his only living relatives. His niece Nadia (Kara Unger) and her daughter Maria (Crane) hold the key to Emile's tragic past and the guilt which has haunted him his entire life.
