Hilarious! This needs a broader release!
I attended a screening of this film at the Magic Lantern Carlton theatre in Toronto this past Friday, and I would like to give a quick review of this film with the hope that others will support it, as it is getting a very limited release at the moment.
As a Canadian who has been a fan of Ennis Esmer from his role as Oz on The Listener, I was happy to discover that Ennis had the lead in this film, and bonus points for this being a Canadian made film that allows Canada to be Canada, rather than overtly pretend we are someplace else, which often happens in films or on TV. This fictional town feels like it could be a small town in a lot of different places, and I think viewers will be reminded of whichever small town is nearest to them. If you watch the trailer, you get a sense of the sort of humour you will get throughout the film. If you watch it and find yourself laughing as I did, you will probably love this film.
This film was made with a relatively low budget, which is evident as you watch, but it does an amazing job at telling an entertaining story with hilarious characters.
I definitely think this film is deserving of a wide release across Canada and beyond, and I would love to purchase it on DVD! I also think this could do really well if it were adapted into a TV series, as I want to know more about these characters.
