Weirdos

Director: Bruce McDonald Year: 2016 Run Time: 125min

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
