According to producer Corey Marr, Gabriel’s new film, Death of a Ladies’ Man, written and directed by Matt Bissonnette, co-starring Jessica Paré and Brian Gleeson, and with music by Leonard Cohen, will be available in theaters and streaming services beginning March 12!

I am not sure if this premiere is limited to Canada or not, so stay tuned for more details. And cross your fingers! heart

Be sure to follow Death of a Ladies’ Man on Instagram!

As more theater and streaming details become available, I’ll post them, of course. In the meantime, Mongrel Media has provided additional production stills for the film, so head over and take a look at all of those goodies. They are all downloadable! Here are my favorites:

And for all you fans in Ontario, Stephanie, a Gabriel Fan in Canada, writes:

Hi Stella. If fans living in Ontario Canada want to watch Death of a Ladies Man, they can buy tickets for a virtual film festival coming up in Kingston, ON. Here’s the page to buy a ticket or pass.

Great festival that I’ve been involved in for years and have been waiting for a Gabriel film to become available for over a decade. Let me know if you need any more info.

Many thanks to Stephanie! The film premieres at the film festival this Saturday, February 27. I won’t be mad if you live in Ontario and get to see this film before I do. I promise. I won’t be mad.

Much. wink

Thanks to Corey Marr for keeping us updated on this exciting new Gabriel film! heart


  1. Wonderful, poignant, funny, inventive film. I don’t want to gloat but I’ve seen it twice!!

    • You are lucky we are friends. TWICE ! ! ! ! Not even remotely fair.

      But I am glad you have seen it. Supernova, another Mongrel Media title, popped up on Amazon for rental over the weekend. So did Falling, Another Round, and The Two of Us.

      So! I am hopeful. PS. Supernova was excellent. Truly. <3

    Just received a newsletter that our last remaining locally-owned repertory cinema is bringing this film to my city. The Mayfair Theatre has a quirky vibe and is a vintage theatre built in 1932. Cinemas have only recently re-opened after a 52 -day lockdown, allowing only 50 people per screening. Oh to be in a theatre again ….

    • Will you go to the theater to see Death of a Ladies’ Man? Really? Oh, how I envy you. The Mayfair sounds perfect for the occasion. I hope you go. Take a pic of the theater for me. Just so I remember what they look like, okay? <3

      • Dear Stella,
        While I would love to see this film on the big screen, I don’t think I will risk it due to the pandemic.

        • I understand. I would not chance it, either. But someday, we will once again be sitting in the dark and enjoying the wonders of the silver screen and real movie popcorn! ;-)


            Looks like you great folks in the USA will get to watch this online on March 20, at the USA premiere at Cinequest Film Festival!!!!!

          • Thanks for this, Angelle. I had noticed a tweet from Cinequest, but thought the film would be “wide” by then. . .

            Now it would seem that this is currently the only way to see the film in the USA prior to this summer.

            I will publish a posting with the details. <3


    DEAR STELLA: All of this news is excellent. I am so late sometimes to see these. My work these days is very difficult due to the pandemic. I assist people of all ages, with all kinds of problems … but I’m ever present. And all this news about GABRIEL makes me forget and enjoy, every day, these pages. I wait for the day I can have his book in my hands and enjoy streaming his new film if it is ever available. All my feelings to my fellows here on these pages.

    • All the best to you too Dora. Thank you for helping people during the pandemic. I hope you get to read Gabriel’s wonderful book and watch Death of a Ladies Man soon .
