The only rule at Exotica is no touching. At a strip club in Toronto, men watch as Christina (Mia Kirshner) dances in her school uniform while the emcee (Elias Koteas) describes dark fantasies. Every other night Francis (Bruce Greenwood) buys a dance from her. Meanwhile a pet store owner and exotic bird smuggler (Don McKellar) who cruises for partners at the ballet gets a visit from Revenue Canada.

A haunting story about the nature of love and healing Exotica stands as one of Atom Egoyan’s most impressive films. Nominated for 25 awards including the Palme d’Or and winning 15 of those including: Best Alternative Adult Film AVN Award, FIPRESCI Prize Cannes, and 8 Genies.
