FLIKS presents Still Mine on Wednesday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson.

Based on true events, Micheal McGowan’s exquisitely crafted and deeply affecting love story about a couple in their twilight years is laced with wry humor.

Still Mine tells the heartfelt tale of Craig Morrison (Academy Award nominee James Cromwell), who comes up against the system when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his ailing wife Irene (Geneviève Bujold).

Using the same techniques to build his new home as his shipbuilding forbearers used, Craig quickly gets on the wrong side of an overzealous government inspector, when he (God forbid) uses unstamped wood milled from his own trees.

As Irene becomes increasingly ill, and amidst a series of stop-work orders, Craig races to finish the house. Hauled into court and facing jail, Craig takes a final stance.

After this screening, FLIKS takes a break for the summer and returns in the fall for its 11th year of presenting quality movies in Nelson.
