WEIRDOS

In a small Nova Scotian town in 1976, 15-year-old Kit (Dylan Authors) and his platonic girlfriend Alice (Julia Sarah Stone) decide to shake up their go-nowhere existence by hitchhiking to Sydney to visit Kit’s glamorous but unstable mother (Molly Parker) — a journey that will force them to face some hard truths about themselves and point the way toward a more honest and fully-lived future.

Beautifully shot in black and white and scored with a suitably killer ’70s soundtrack, the new film from Canadian master Bruce McDonald and playwright and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor spikes its coming-of-age road-movie template with a witty and inventive dash of magic realism.

PG | 1h 25min | Documentary, Biography

“Two veteran Canadian filmmakers meet in the middle with Weirdos, which finds a useful balance between director Bruce McDonald’s ’80s indie-hipster sensibility and scenarist Daniel MacIvor’s penchant for warmer, fuzzier dramedy. Their slender but pleasing black-and-white narrative finds two adolescents road-tripping toward bittersweet self-discovery across rural Nova Scotia.” – Variety
