Exotica is a 1994 Canadian drama film set primarily in and around the fictional Exotica strip club in Toronto. It is written and directed by Atom Egoyan and stars Mia Kirshner, Elias Koteas, Sarah Polley, Bruce Greenwood and Don McKellar. The story concerns a father grieving over the loss of a child and obsessed with a young stripper. It was inspired by Egoyan's curiosity by the role strip clubs play in sex-obsessed societies, and rules forbidding clients from touching dancers. It was filmed in Toronto in 1993. The film was a box office success and won numerous awards, including the FIPRESCI Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and eight Genie Awards, including Best Motion Picture.
