In a small Nova Scotia 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 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
McDonald directed the cult hits Highway 61, Pontypool, Roadkill, Hard Core Logo and The Tracey Fragments, starring Ellen Page. For TV, he directed the award-winning series Twitch City, and episodes of Degrassi and Heartland. His recent films include Trigger, The Husband, Hellions and 2016’s Weirdos. He is currently directing the short film Ashram ’69.
