A FILM BY BRUCE MCDONALD
Nova Scotia. 1976. The weekend of the American Bicentennial. 15-year-old Kit (Dylan Authors) is running away from home to move in with his estranged mother and, hopefully, to find himself. With the help of his girlfriend Alice (Julia Sarah Stone), Kit hitchhikes through the stunning maritime landscape towards the home of his glamorous, artistic mother Laura (Molly Parker). But as the kids near their final destination, the truth about their relationship and their identities begins to unfold. Stunningly shot in black and white and enhanced with a killer ‘70s soundtrack, Bruce McDonald laces this charming coming-of-age road-movie with a welcome air of nostalgia and a touch of enchanted realism.
