Kevin Courrier Whats On Spring 2012It is with deep sorrow that the MNjcc shares the news that beloved film critic and instructor Kevin Courrier passed away on Friday October 12th. Kevin shared his passion for film and music at the JCC for over a decade through the Toronto Jewish Film Society and Film Studies lectures. His endless energy and passion for discussion and storytelling overflowed and cascaded into our community. Kevin was a gentle soul with a razor sharp mind. He elevated our understanding and appreciation of the art form that he loved. He will be dearly missed.

    With film critic Shlomo Schwartzberg

    They say comedy is hard, but when Hollywood gets it right, there’s nothing like it. Emerging in the 1930s, screwball comedies were fast-talking romantic farces that fused silliness with sophistication, and featured fabulous ‘battles of the sexes’ scenes starring Hepburn, Tracy, Grant and Gable. In this lecture, we’ll look at the finest romantic comedies and their various permutations, and enjoy clips from such iconic films as Bringing Up Baby,Adam’s Rib, The Philadelphia Story and It Happened One Night to more recent rom-coms Tootsie and Addicted to Love. They are movies to laugh at and love.
