Star(s): Dylan Authors, Julia Sarah Stone, Molly Parker, Allan Hawco.

Synopsis:

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
