Ottawa Premiere the Week of Friday March 12th!
A carousing college professor’s life takes a series of unimaginable turns, and all the old stories are given a new twist, when he begins to have surreal hallucinations and learns he may not be long for this world. Featuring the music of Leonard Cohen.
Starring Golden Globe award winner Gabriel Byrne, 2x Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Jessica Paré, and Cannes Film Festival award winner Suzanne Clément!
“director Matt Bissonette quiets the genre to create a slow-burning masterpiece…an imaginative, mid-budget film like Death of a Ladies’ Man is a refreshingly original win for the little guy…a hilariously disarming look at living, dying, and whatever it is that happens in-between.” (The Gateway)
“Iconic songs by Leonard Cohen provide a highly memorable throughline for writer-director Matt Bissonnette’s warm and wry portrait of an incorrigible man who doesn’t have much time left to change his ways. Delivering the latest in a long line of terrific performances, Gabriel Byrne stars as Samuel O’Shea” (Kington Canadian Film Festival)
