Description


LOVE IN THE SIXTH will launch on Canada Screens' video-on-demand service in November, and we're celebrating! Catch the theatrical screening at the retro-cool Fox Theatre, then join cast, crew and loved ones at Skwish Bar just a few doors east of the Fox for the after-party that will have the Beaches neighbourhood gossiping for weeks!

Our relevant, raunchy and raw indie film has been embraced wherever it screens. What they're saying:

"The film explores relationships, in the post modern mode of Woody Allen, plus has amazing song breaks in the style of Motown, Punk, The Beatles and even “Grease” (if Grease would have had a song called “F**king Love”). The cinematic freedom of Jude Klassen’s director influence is woven throughout the work, as she portrays a rocker Mom named Dani, who is raising a Hunger-Games-loving-environmentally-conscious 12 year-old named Kat (Mika Kay, in a memorable performance)." Patrick McDonald, HollywoodChicago.com

"It’s got folk, punk, Motown, roots Americana, hip hop, funk and 60s surf-inspired instrumentals. All in all, Love In the Sixth doesn’t leave much out." Pique News Magazine

"LOVE IN THE SIXTH is a musical about the relationship between Dani, a struggling single Mom, and her dystopian twelve-year-old daughter Kat. The funniest lyrics, the catchiest tunes, and the most eye-popping music-video type montages are a sheer, original delight." WFF2015

"Jude Klassen is a Canadian indie Queen." Reel West Magazine

"Klassen also stars as Dani, who is an artist-of-all-trades from rock and roll musician to podcast host to philosophy tutor. Dani's boyfriend, Sid, struggles with jealousy in the relationship. While some of those scenes are hard to watch and a little heartbreaking, the dialogue feels real, the kind of real where Canadian films excel...

The film is female-driven in conversation and focus, but also reflects on where the women have gone wrong in their relationships as well. We get a wide variety of rich, real female characters in the film. Given that this film passes the Bechdel test multiple times despite being about relationships, men who watch the film should listen and take good notes." Canadian Crossing, Chicago

"Tonally the film shifts from black-and-white documentary-like scenes to deeply saturated musical scenes, interspersed with interviews with some local artists and writers. Credit to Klassen and editors Jason and Brett Butler (who also appear in the film) for making sense of the narrative while still coming across as loose and improvisatory. It’s a fine line between chaos and conventionality, and these filmmakers pulled it off... it’s the infectiousness of Klassen on screen that keeps things both honest and engaging, showcasing an extraordinary ability to be seriously silly and amusingly serious at the same time. I kind of loved Love in the Sixth, falling hard for its charms despite quirks that could have annoyed. It’s fair to say you’re unlikely to see a film like it this year, and I applaud all involved for making such a fun little film emit such a feeling of togetherness and celebration." Jason Gorber, Dork Shelf / CTV

JOIN CAST AND CREW after the movie for live music, drinks, and an informal Q&A session at THE BEACH HOUSE Bar and Grill, 1953 Queen East (a few blocks west of the Fox).

And watch for our launch on Canada Screens video-on-demand service on Tuesday November 14th!
