||Synopsis: Simon, a Toronto high school student, has been raised by his maternal Uncle Tom since Simon's parents, Rachel and Sami, died in a car accident eight years ago. Tom, a tow truck driver, decided to move to the city into Rachel's house and assume the mortgage, something he could ill afford, largely not to disrupt Simon's life, but equally to get away from his and Rachel's father, Morris, an openly bigoted man. That upbringing has made Tom a sullen and angry man. Morris only recently passed away. Rachel and Sami met when she, a violinist, brought her instrument in to be serviced, Sami the repairman. Simon now owns his mother's expensive violin, which Tom would like to sell to help pay the mortgage and Simon's imminent university tuition. One day at school, Simon's French teacher Sabine reads a French newspaper story from several years ago as a translation exercise for the class, the story about a pregnant woman traveling to Israel, her then boyfriend who, unknown to her, planted a bomb in...

Watch Adoration - Alternative Versions.
"Adoration" is, at its heart, a coming-of-age story. It's about that
time of self-discovery when the question "who am I?" becomes an
obsession. But what makes this film so startlingly refreshing is that
it also has a classic structure rarely seen in contemporary cinema. The
viewer is never quite sure whether or not the images on screen are real
or imagined. Think of a chess game where each move prompts you to
replay the entire game in your head. Such is the experience of watching
"Adoration," brilliantly conceived and executed by
writer/director/co-producer Atom Egoyan.
Egoyan is a legend in his adopted country of Canada with dozens of
awards and nominations to his credit (1997's "The Sweet Hereafter"
earned him Oscar noms for writing and directing). The mere mention of
his name widens the eyes of citizens north of the border, as I learned
here at the Toronto International Film Festival, where I attended the
film's North American Premiere (it debuted at Cannes, where it was
nominated for the prestigious Palm D'Or). Locals hold him to a very
high standard. For me, I prefer going in cold, knowing as little as
possible about a film. Similarly, I won't reveal much about the story
After losing his parents under questionable circumstances, Simon (Devon
Bostick) is reluctantly being raised by his Uncle Tom (Scott Speedman).
Simon's memories of his mother Rachel (Rachel Blanchard), an
accomplished violinist, and father Sami (Noam Jenkins) are shrouded in
mystery. Enter Simon's teacher Sabine (Arsinée Khanjian), who might be
able to help Simon unlock the secrets that are the key to his youthful
confusion. What follows is a brain teaser which takes great
concentration. The wheels are always turning, and the viewer is
constantly challenged to figure out exactly what is real or perceived,
and by whom.
The look of the film enhances the mystery inherent in the story. The
use of single-point lighting allows shadows to fall upon
already-obscure settings. Music is essential to the plot and, as such,
Rachel's violin virtuosity is extended to a string soundtrack that is
as haunting as the film itself. Paul Sarossy's cinematography is
cleverly integrated with composer Mychael Danna's soundtrack, with
tracking shots set to music as a visual ballet. Editor Susan Shipton
had a tall order working with Egoyan to craft a virtual puzzle in which
nothing is at it seems.
Speedman ably plays the father figure who isn't quite ready to take on
the task of raising a teen but does so out of loyalty to his late
sister. Khanjian's Sabine is simply chilling and central to the power
of the film. Blanchard is a joy to watch -- simply an angel on screen
(and shot that way, to boot) -- and Jenkins successfully remains an
enigmatic personality throughout. But, most of all, this is Bostick's
film to carry on his young shoulders. Appearing in almost every scene,
it's his curiosity and angst which drive "Adoration," and it's our
empathy for him (weren't we all Simon once?) that gives the film its
heart and soul. Bostick is one of Canada's most prolific young actors
(he co-starred in Citizen Duane, one of my Top Picks from the 2006
festival) and will hopefully be introduced to a wider audience if this
film gets the distribution it deserves.
The moment the credits began to roll I wanted to see "Adoration" again.
If there were back-to-back screenings I would have remained in my seat.
This is the first film in recent memory which has had that effect on
me. There's nothing more exciting and intriguing than a film that plays
with space and time, where perception matters more than anything else.
What we see on screen vs. what is in our heads -- the spaces we fill
with our own thoughts -- are artfully juggled by Egoyan and the result
is simply a masterpiece.
