“The coming-of-age flick gets a thoroughly Canadian spin in this immensely likeable comedy…big-hearted movie has been delighting viewers” (Kingston Canadian Film Festival)

“It’s a classic story of a coming-of-age high school romance…it packs in the feel goods. It has a heart.” (Penticton Herald)

“The hilarity of all that went wrong had the audience in stitches.” (Summerland Review)

“John-Hughesian high-school vibe…quite possibly the most Canadian film ever made” (National Post)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!

In small-town British Columbia, Canada, awkward teen Mike Drinkwater has trouble fitting in and is bullied by his antagonist and rival: wealthy school jock, Luke Ryan. While Mike's offbeat father, Hank, spends more time defrauding the government than being a role model; Hank is dealing with his own longstanding condemnation by Luke's father Wesley Ryan, which seems to fuel Luke's hostility towards Mike. Enter Wallace, a young girl from the United States who is adjusting to life in a new place while recovering from her own personal tragedy. Wallace's strength of character helps transform her life and the lives of the people around her.
