Finally, a film set in Canada that's not afraid to say it's set in Canada. Thank Gawd. What is this perceived American phobia about watching any story set up North? A gang of childhood buddies reunite in a remote cabin for a weekend of reminiscing and drinking but they are unable to escape the truth about their past or the kind of men they've become. One is a fitness narcissist, one is a cold, broken lawyer, one is an adulterer and one is a gay unemployed photographer. They're all so different you wonder how they'll survive one night let alone an entire weekend. But it is Ian Tracey's performance as the never-do-well gambling addict who steals the show. His bravado is so obviously fake, you immediately fear for him and his poorly hidden fragility. Martin Cummins also gives an excellent, if uneven, performance as the bitter lawyer. But he's better in his own indy film, 'We All Fall Down' and excellent in 'Love Come Down', which he won a Gemini award for.
Decent drama. For an unknown cast the acting is pretty good. Intense character study, nicely filmed. A bit of a downer but it is worth seeing. Nicely written.
