WEIRDOS

WEIRDOS

Bruce McDonald · Canada · 2016 · 85 mins · PG
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

A double Canadian Screen Awards winner — Best Supporting Actress for Molly Parker and Best Original Screenplay for Daniel MacIvor — Weirdos is one of Bruce McDonald’s sweetest films.

Filmed in lustrous B & W, it’s a coming-of-age road movie set in 1976. Questing teenager Kit (Dylan Authors) and his BFF Alice (Julia Sarah Stone) leave their tiny Nova Scotia town for adventure in the “big” city of Sydney. What could go wrong for a couple of kids who listen to Canrock — the soundtrack is like a ’70s sampler pack — and who just wanna have fun?

Plenty, since one of them is unsure of his sexual identity, the other doubts her relationship status and both are wondering how Kit’s divorced mom (Molly Parker) will welcome their unheralded arrival.

“Anything’s possible” observes a hovering magic-realist figure, an Andy Warhol lookalike amusingly played by Rhys Bevan-John. He calls himself Kit’s “spirit animal” and offers a defining sentiment: “We’re all weirdos. That’s what makes us beautiful.” –Toronto Star

A lovely, low-key memory piece, vibrant with the awkward grace of adolescence. The Hollywood Reporter
What's not to love about Canuck hipster Bruce McDonald's return to a genre of which he's a master -- the indie road movie with a distinctly Canadian flavour and endearingly peculiar characters? Victoria Times-Colonist
Cast Dylan Authors, Julia Sarah Stone and Molly Parker
