Owning Mahowny

Directed by Richard Kwietniowski

UK PREMIERE The year is 1982 and Brian Mahowny has just been promoted as the youngest credit manager at a major bank in downtown Toronto, with access to millions of dollars. On the outside, Mahowny has none of the usual vices. On the inside however, there’s a different Mahowny – one whose secret high-stakes gambling habit is about to spiral out of control. “With a tremendous eye for the details of the period and locale, Richard Kwietniowski shows a striking command of the craft, making every shot count. Drawing you ever deeper into one man’s addiction, he doesn’t waste a single frame in unspooling this remarkable tale based on a true story.” – Sundance Film Festival 2003 Presented by the Canadian High Commission
