“Guest of Honour is an emotional investigation of the bond between a father and a daughter. Their history has been rocked by events that neither fully understands. They’re both in a suspended state for much of the film, trying to understand the nature of their connection to one another.” –Atom Egoyan

Jim (David Thewlis) and his daughter Veronica (Laysla De Oliveira), a young high school music teacher, attempt to unravel their complicated histories and intertwined secrets in Guest of Honour, a film that weaves through time exploring perception and penance, memory and forgiveness.

Patricia Rozema has an Emmy, a Grammy nomination, Directors Guild of Canada awards, Writers Guild of America nominations, and a PEN award. Her features include: I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing, which launched her career in Cannes; Mansfield Park; Grey Gardens, Into the Forest; and Mouthpiece. She is currently directing a pilot for Netflix. Rozema is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
