Nymphomaniac I & II

Written and directed by Lars von Trier (Dogville, Melancholia), this two-part psycho-sexual drama stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac named Joe. As the film opens, a Danish bachelor (Stellan Skarsgard) finds Joe badly beaten in an alley. He takes her back to his apartment, where he tends to her injuries. As she begins to recover she recounts her conflicted sexual history to him

Nymphomaniac screens Thursday and Friday night at RPL Film Theatre. Vol. I screens at 7 p.m. on both nights, and Vol. II screens at 9 p.m. To give you a sense of what to expect here’s the trailer:

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
