Domestic Arrivals, the museum’s showcase of Canadian film, takes place from Feb. 28 to March 3. In total, 14 movies will be screened, ranging from hidden gems to Academy Award nominees. Other highlight movies include David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis (staring Twilight star Robert Pattinson)

SATURDAY, MARCH 2

10:00 pm
Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg, 2012, Canada, 109 min, 14A

Arriving in the wake of the Occupy movements and the recent financial collapse, David Cronenberg’s stylish and timely adaptation of Don DeLillo’s apocalyptic satire follows a billionaire financier (Robert Pattinson) as he creeps across an imploding New York City in a limo, his life of absurd luxury collapsing around him. It’s a scenario geared expressly toward Cronenberg’s sensibilities, playing out like Videodrom–or, as The New Yorker argued, Crash–transplanted to the endangered world of the one per cent. With Robert Pattinson, Paul giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Jay Baruchel.
