“TO THE WORLDS”

“The brochure said ‘For ages four and up.’ So I said, ‘Well, tell me where it says I can’t join?’ And they were like, ‘How old are you? You’re older than my mom.’ I’m like, ‘I’m older than your grandmother.’”— 59-year-old Wendy Ord

What is being said about this documentary:

  • Imagine Skate Canada meets The Real Housewives.
  • The documentary “To The Worlds” spends months with its colourful cast of characters: Karen, the devoutly religious 46-year-old mother who homeschools her three children; Donna, a 61-year-old Chinese woman who describes growing up in a culture that valued male children over girls; Isabella, a 49-year-old Romanian who completed mandatory service in the army and casually speaks of disassembling weapons; and Henrietta, a 77-year-old scene-stealer whose radiant humour and verve belies the fact she’s grieving a recently lost son.
  •  To The Worlds is ultimately a film about the power of female friendship and the pursuit of happiness — about learning to stop worrying about society’s expectations and, finally, please oneself
