The film offers great appeal to young people, and is playing across Canada at select Landmark Cinemas on October 7th, before opening at the Magic Lantern Theatres – Carlton Cinema in Toronto on October 9th.
The project is a real labour of love, a collaboration between former rivals Michael Seater and Paula Brancati, who met when she was filming an episode of , which was brought to the attention of Telefilm Canada and played as a part of the prestigious Canada’s Not Short on Talent program at the Cannes Film Festival.
Michael Seater: So much of the work is done in prep, in pre-production and the more you can organize in advance, the more room you have to play on the day.
If dot your i’s and cross your t’s and show up with a clear plan, you can show up and go “oh, that’s cool, but let’s change it a bit because I know what we need out of this. So much of it was in the edit, because the performers were given freedom to explore the scenes.
We drew on the fact that we had a ton of old friends, as we all grew up as actors and we wanted to draw on who they were as people and shoot it in a way that gave them a freedom to really make it something natural and authentic so we shot it so they would be overlap, we’d try new things, go off-book, and so it’s a really intimate exploration of your lifelong friendships and questioning whether there really is such a thing, and kind of questioning kind of where you are now, compared to where you thought you’d be, and we kind of focus on people in their late-twenties, but I think that that’s pretty universal, regardless of how old you are and death of childhood and all these great things, and all set against the beautiful backdrop of Northern Ontario and Parry Sound with towering pines and smoky granite, it’s a beautiful thing.
