This Beautiful City 2007
About: Friday night in Toronto’s lower west end. Chatter from a dinner party in Harry and Carol’s nouveau riche condo drifts through an launch balcony door, as two freebase cokeheads, Cute and Johnny, have a party on their own in the alley below. As the dinner guests leave, the hostess is nowhere to be found. Until, a wet thud and a sharp shout rise up to the balcony. Cute stares in horror at Carol’s body, splayed on the alley floor, as Harry screams for support from above. The sharp explode of police sirens sends the cokeheads running as Peter, a middle aged police officer, sprints from his cruiser to check Carol’s vitals. Rocket forward three months and these five disparate lives start to cataclysmically intersect through weaving multi-narrative storyline arcs that release spurts and geysers of long-suppressed sexuality and aggression. Pretty things can happen when you hit rock bottom.
Released: 04 Apr 2008 Director: Ed Gass-Donnelly Writers: Ed Gass-Donnelly Actors: Aaron Poole, Kristin Booth, Caroline Cave, Noam Jenkins Genres: Drama

This Beautiful City Reviews:

This film feels cheaply made, but considering its topics matter, it makes sense. The gritty cinema-verite style jumps back and forth between the lives of road workers and condo dwellers, gradually drawing these two worlds ever closer. Jump cuts and hand-held cameras work in this context.The greatest thing about the movie, and the thing that ultimately overcomes the terrible filming, is the acting. Nice performances by Aaron Poole (who is also the producer), Kristin Booth (from MVP), and Caroline Cave (from the L Word) make a genuine tension on screen. The storyline itself is clever, and the dialogue understated, but the acting borders on magnificent. Not only do they manage to make something riveting, but smart as well. The setting, the city, looks fabulous.


I really wanted this low-budget movie to succeed, but it falls short in my opinion. It was filmed in the seedy section of Parkdale in west Toronto, and I loved the familiar road scenes. But this is a film that seems to revel in its own misery. Writer/director Ed Gass-Donnelly calls the movie 'dark,' but it's more than that: it's unpleasant in the extreme.***SPOILERSThere seems to be no zone at all for the characters to go except down. Even the yuppie couple (the lovely Caroline Cave and handsome Noam Jenkins) descend into dissipation bordering on cliché. I wanted to root for SOMEBODY in this flick, but all the characters, with the possible exception of Peter (Stuart Hughes), as a cop on medical leave, insisted on destroying themselves. Five characters intersect around a Parkdale apartment building on Toronto's Queen Road West. One is a crack whore (Kristin Booth), who is hopelessly entwined with a tortured, crack-addicted dreamer (Aaron Poole). Through a series of convoluted mishaps, both characters become connected to Harry (Jenkins), husband of Carole (Cave), who herself gets connected to Hughes's cop, who himself is the father of Booth's character. It sounds more confusing than it really is.What I found really irritating about this movie (the DVD at least) was the poor audio, which needed me to crank up the volume almost to max just to hear some of the dialogue. Low-budget movie or not, the sound, of all things, could not sabotage a film. A really interesting aspect of the movie is that the chain of happenings that leads to the break-up of a marriage, to death and the destruction of dreams, was an accident (or perhaps, director Gass-Donnelly seems to suggest, it isn't). In any case, Carole falls from her condo apartment, and her disfigurement from this mishap not only causes her marriage to fall apart but galvanizes the another happenings that lead to the characters becoming involved directly or indirectly in her plight. Life does in fact sometimes work that way. But even in true life, there is a tip of redemption. No one is redeemed in this film.


Cute (Kristin Booth) is a prostitute and her boyfriend Johnny (Aaron Poole) is her pimp. Carol (Caroline Cave) and Harry (Noam Jenkins) seems to be a content couple. Peter (Stuart Hughes) is a cop working on a missing person case. In a Toronto apartment, Carol sneaks a cigarette on the balcony. She falls off. She lands near Cute and Johnny, and they run off. Peter arrives to keep her hand. Did she fall or was it deliberate? Three months later, Carol comes home from the hospital. She reconnects with Peter who is leaving the police force for stress. Harry tries to support Cute who has become strung out on drugs. Johnny is trying to receive her to stop but gets caught up in a murder and is suffering health problems.This is a low-budget indie. The interconnected storyline can be disjointed viewing. What pulls it all together is five compelling performances. Booth, Poole and Cave stand out especially. They are top-notched worthy of each praise. The film should test better style and better production. Writer/director Ed Gass-Donnelly is a newcomer with possibly something to say.
