The 'Before They Were Famous' series will kick off on June 12th with 2003’s MARION BRIDGE, a Canadian film which first showcased the talents of a young Ellen Page. The New York Times called it “a small, exquisitely acted Canadian film”, which “takes the raw ingredients of soap opera and spins them into something truthful and quietly compelling”. Starring Molly Parker (House of Cards), MARION BRIDGE tells the story of 3 grown sisters gathered together again in their small town to be with their dying mother, and the emotions arising out of that reunion. In her film debut, Ellen Page is Joanie, a young girl drawn into the drama involving one of the sisters, part of a badly kept family secret soon to be revealed.
