| Small, powerful film
I saw this film recently and had the chance to meet the writer/director, Max McGuire, at the Bytowne cinema in Ottawa. It was a powerful film whose intensity sneaks up on you. The storyline was made more relevant that the director is living first-hand with CF.

It is a road trip picture with a twist at the end that I will not reveal. Unlike some other road films, it is entirely believable, including all of the characters the two leads meet along the way.

During the Q&A session after the film, it was interesting to hear about the five-year journey it took for the writer/director to complete this project. It is truly a labour of love, and this usually leads to the most worthwhile films for audiences.

It is a solid addition to the recent catalogue of sleeper Canadian films. I hope it finds an audience both here and abroad, and that this talented filmmaker will continue to evolve his craft.
