Friday Night Flicks: Sleeping Betty

It’s the beginning of the Thanksgiving long weekend in Canada. (Monday the 10th is Thanksgiving Day.) Television stations will be showing a higher proportion of movies aimed at children for the next few days — a brief respite from an October full of horror films leading up to Hallowe’en.

I thought it might be nice to feature something Canadian tonight, so I picked Sleeping Betty from the National Film Board’s on-line offerings. This 2007 animation by  Claude Cloutier offers a slightly twisted (and definitely Canadian) take on the traditional Charles Perrault fairytale.



Here’s hoping nobody has a dangerous encounter with a moose this weekend, even if it’s only the regular kind.
