This remake of the 1984 French Canadian classic La guerre des tuques (The Dog Who Stopped the War) catapults the story of the most epic snowball fight ever into the realm of 3D animation.
The result is a family-friendly contemporary hit full of chilly thrills, snow-fort hills, and a rollicking energy that is unstoppably fun. Fortunately, there’s also a brilliant anti-war message packed in the ice that’s sure to melt hearts.
Snowtime! (La Guerre des tuques) 3D was a bilingual box-office smash, winning the Golden Screen Award for being the highest-grossing Canadian film in 2015.
Director: Bruce McDonald Run Time: 125min Genre(s): Drama
In a small Nova Scotian town in 1976, 15-year-old Kit (Authors) and his girlfriend Alice (Stone) decide to shake up their go-nowhere existence by hitchhiking to the big city of Sydney to visit Kit’s glamorous but unstable mother (Parker). It becomes a journey of self discovery that opens them up to new possibilities for their futures.
Beautifully shot and featuring a killer ’70s soundtrack, the new film from Canadian master Bruce McDonald and playwright and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor shakes up the coming-of-age road-movie concept with wit, charm and a lot of heart.
“What’s not to love about Canuck hipster Bruce McDonald’s return to a genre he’s a master of – the indie road movie with a distinctly Canadian flavour and endearingly peculiar characters.” – Michelle Reid, Victoria Times Colonist
