    @codeblue001 - The film is unavailable because we sadly don't have the rights to stream the film online. When it becomes available, I'll make an announcement. Hope that helps!

    I don't understand why this film (Dusk) is unavailable to public - at least Canadians.

    @OhComeON --> We unfortunately don't have the rights to stream this film online for free! It's part of our Education+ offering, though.
